Lenny Kravitz’s Are You Gonna Go My Way album has been digitally remastered and expanded for a new Deluxe Edition to be released on September 24th (September 23rd outside of North America) by Virgin/UMe. The special 2CD and digital / Mastered for iTunes 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 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 also 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.
