Lenny Kravitz pens memoir for Sphere

Rock star Lenny Kravitz has written Let Love Rule, a memoir covering the first 25 years of his life, to be published by Sphere in the UK.

UK and Commonwealth rights for the book, out on 6th October 2020, were acquired by Cath Burke, Sphere's executive publisher, from David Vigliano at The Vigliano Agency. Holt acquired North American rights and the book will be edited by Serena Jones, executive editor.

The publisher said: “Let Love Rule covers a vast canvas stretching from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant, Los Angeles’ Baldwin Hills, Beverly Hills and finally France, England and Germany. It’s the story of a wildly creative kid who, despite tough struggles at school and extreme tension at home, finds salvation in music. In one lightning-fast chapter after another, we see him grow as a musician and ultimately a master songwriter, producer and performer. We also see Lenny’s spiritual growth—and the powerful way in which spirit informs his music.”

Kravitz is a record producer, photographer, activist, designer, actor and philanthropist who has won four Grammy Awards during his 20-year musical career. His 10 studio albums have sold 40 million copies worldwide. Kravitz has also appeared in the “Hunger Games” films and runs creative firm Kravitz Design.

He said: “I am pleased to announce the release of my book Let Love Rule. Writing this memoir has been a beautiful and interesting experience taking me through the first 25 years of my life, from birth to the release of my first album. That journey, full of adventure was where I found myself and my voice. Through that experience love was the force that paved the way and love became my message.”
