Lenny Kravitz has released a brand new single, ‘5 More Days Til Summer‘, taken from his upcoming album, ‘Raise Vibration‘, which is set for release on September 7, 2018 (BMG) and available for pre-order now.
As a sunny acoustic guitar slides towards a swooning refrain on this wistful new single, the wail of a wah wah pedal solo proves as hummable as the song’s hook as Lenny Kravitz shares a tale overhead in a bar.
“It’s a story about an older man in his late sixties,” Lenny Kravitz explained.
“He doesn’t have a wife, he works the night shift, sleeps during the day, and has only seen the dark for so long.
“He has been saving his money and is about take his first ever vacation.
“I thought about the life he was living and the fantasy he was about to have.
“I saw him transforming into his younger self and reliving what he should’ve lived back in the day even though he was in an older body.
“It’s a joyous and sweet pop tune.”
