Let Love Rule is a new memoir written by Lenny Kravitz, unveiling the first 25 years of the musician’s life from his childhood and up until the release of his debut album. 

Apart from offering fans a unique insight into the artist’s life, writing Let Love Rule was also therapeutic for Kravitz. In a statement, Kravitz said: 

“Writing this memoir has been a beautiful and interesting experience taking me through the first 25 years of my life, from birth to 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.”

Let Love Rule will see Kravitz delve into his relationships with a number of significant figures, including his parents and ex-wife Lisa Bonet. The book will span Kravitz’s adventurous childhood spent between Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as journeys across the world. The book’s description reads: 

“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 co-wrote Let Love Rule with biographer and songwriter David Ritz who has written books about a plethora of musical legends including Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles and Willie Nelson. Kravitz is also set to narrate the audiobook version of his memoir. Let Love Rule, set to arrive October 6th.
