Lenny Kravitz, ‘Stand’ – Song Review

Lenny Kravitz StandLenny Kravitz appears to have a sure hit on his hands with ‘Stand,’ a new single that marks his return from a three-year hiatus and appears on his upcoming album ‘Black and White America.’

‘Stand’ is a fine return to form for the four-time Grammy winner. It’s a hand-clapping, sing-along summer song with vibrant electric guitars and a poppy beat.

Lyrically, the tune finds Kravitz offering words of encouragement to anyone facing hardship or struggle:

Your faith and patience will be your soldiers to guide you through your troubled times / Just put one foot in front of the other, the battles are inside your mind / You have the power to face your demons no matter how they go on time / And rid yourself of your fear and weakness so you can start to live your life.

‘Stand’ has already begun receiving airplay. It’s easy to imagine the uplifting song blaring out of speakers across the country all summer long. ‘Black and White America’ is tentatively targeted for an August release.

The rocker hasn’t released any new music since 2008’s ‘It Is Time for a Love Revolution,’ unless you count ‘(I Can’t Make It) Another Day,’ a collaboration with Michael Jackson that may have been the best track on the late King of Pop’s 2010 album ‘Michael.’
