"It Is Time for a Love Revolution" is the eighth studio album by American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and arranger Lenny Kravitz, released on February 5 2008. [Matthews, Allie. (October 9 2007) [http://acedmagazine.com/content/view/579/40/ A Love Revolution is coming your way] "Aced Magazine". Accessed October 27 2007.]

It includes fourteen new tracks, written, composed, arranged, performed and produced by Kravitz himself. The album has received Kravitz's best reviews in years, with "Rolling Stone" awarding it three stars out of a possible five and suggesting that "As a blast back to the past, this is the best album Lenny Kravitz has ever made" [http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/album/18066474/review/18137397/it_is_time_for_a_love_revolution] .

Kravitz has planned to tour with the album's material for two years after the release, starting with a performance of two new songs on Times Square New Year's Eve show, hosted by Carson Daly.

It debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, selling about 73,000 copies in its first week [Katie Hasty, [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003710309 "Digital Sales Propel Johnson To Second No. 1"] , Billboard.com, February 13, 2008.] and becoming Kravitz's first US Top 5 album since 2000's "Greatest Hits".
