2CD Deluxe Edition Adds 20 Bonus Tracks to 1993 Album, Including 10 Previously Unreleased Recordings from Kravitz's Personal Archive.

Lenny Kravitz's album, Are You Gonna Go My Way has been digitally remastered and expanded for a new Deluxe Edition to be released by Virgin/UMe.  The special 2CD and digital edition adds 20 bonus tracks to the album's original line-up, including 10 previously unreleased recordings from Kravitz's personal archive (please see track listing below). 

By 1993, Lenny Kravitz had achieved global superstardom with his psychedelic brand of rock, by way of his 1989 debut Let Love Rule and his groundbreaking 1991 follow-up, Mama Said, which boasted no fewer than seven chart topping singles.  Kravitz's third studio album, Are You Gonna Go My Way, was released in March 1993.  The collection's explosive title track became a household hit, landing at No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart and propelling the album to massive success.

Among the new Deluxe Edition's previously unreleased recordings are six demos and outtakes from the Are You Gonna Go My Way album sessions, as well as three early demos Kravitz recorded for Vanessa Paradis' self-titled 1992 album, which he produced.  I May Not Be A Star (Light Piece For Vanessa) has never been released in any form, while Travelogue and Lonely Rainbows were finished and recorded by Paradis for the album.  A previously unreleased BBC Radio interview is included, and acoustic versions of Believe, Sister, and Heaven Help and seven official B-sides are also featured, completing the commemorative reissue of this epic album.

Living legend, pre-eminent rock musician, fashion icon and one of the coolest dudes on the planet are just a few of the ways Lenny Kravitz has been described throughout his 20 year career in music. He’s won 4 Grammy Awards, sold 40 million albums and blurred the lines between style, race and musical tastes with his unique blend of retro modern Soul, Funk & Rock music. Released in March 1993 Are You Gonna Go My Way was Lenny’s third studio album and contained songs inspired by Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Curtis Mayfield, Prince, Sly & Robbie and is arguably his most popular work to date, having reached number one in the UK album charts; a feat that has not been repeated since.
