Black and White America Summer
"My rock's always got some funk in it, and my funk always has some rock in it," says Kravitz, who cut his first disc since 2008 at his home studio in the Bahamas. Highlights include the seductive R&B jam "Super Love" and the raw "Come On Get It," on which Kravitz pants like a dog in heat. The title track is about the obstacles his parents endured as a mixed-race couple. "When they walked the streets, they were in danger," he says. "People would spit at them. Nasty shit. It's my story. And it's black and white America. It's who I am."
