Lenny Kravitz’ 10th album, the upbeat, catchy Strut, bows today, and Kravitz, who normally spends his days in blissful harmony at his pad in Eleuthera, in the Bahamas (just check his Instagram if you want to get a taste of his life), is back on home turf in New York City promoting it.

He created the music while playing fashion whiz Cinna in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

In the midst of shooting, “all of a sudden, all this music started coming into my head. I had to make a decision whether I was going to capture it or let it go,” recalls Kravitz. “I was waking up at 5 a.m. for these ridiculous actors’ hours. You’re working all day. This stuff was just coming into my head. It kept coming. I basically stayed awake for two weeks. I slept maybe one or two hours a night sometimes. I got all the music down.”

After he wrapped the film, it was back to paradise. “I went to the Bahamas and recorded it. There was no time to think of anything. It was just a matter of capturing it,” he says. “It ended up what it is — a really up, energetic, fun record.”
