Kravitz, who has spoken at length about how turning 30 has allowed her to embrace who she is despite online hate and speculation, did not give details on the project’s release date. However, she said She that it will examine themes of love and loss. “I feel vulnerable and it’s kind of scary, but making music makes me happy,” she said.

The star had shared in a September 2021 interview with Another one magazine that she had been working on the solo album with Antonoff for a few years. “I wrote it over a long period of time, subconsciously capturing that range of emotions, which has been interesting to look back and see what I was writing about them, then and now and in between” , she shared at the time. “It’s personal. It’s about love and loss. I got married. I got divorced. Breakups, breakups are sad but also beautiful things. It’s about the bitter sweetness , this beginning and this end. It’s so complex, this space, when you’re between heartbroken and grieving the loss of something and excited about what’s ahead of you.

The solo record will be new territory for the 33-year-old actress, whose previous musical endeavors have been, for the most part, confined to her work with her band Lolawolf with Jimmy Giannopoulos. The R&B/electro pop duo has two studio albums – 2014 Calm and 2020s Tenderness. Kravitz also has a song on the soundtrack of big little lies, the hit HBO show in which she starred alongside Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep and Shailene Woodley. Antonoff, meanwhile, is both a seasoned producer and a longtime Electric Lady regular, having worked with Taylor Swift, Lorde, St. Vincent and Lana Del Rey at New York’s famed recording studios.

An actress and musician, Kravitz is professionally a clear combination of her parents – actress Lisa Bonet and rock star Lenny Kravitz – who she also spoke with She. Acknowledging how privileged she was to have been raised by superstars in the entertainment industry, she said she felt “a bit of embarrassment around what came with my last name.

“People would always assume that if I got a job it was because of this,” she said. “I’m not going to pretend that it didn’t help me get into the room. But I had to remember that I worked hard, and as a child I put on shows in my grandparents’ house. And it had nothing to do with who my family was. It’s because I liked it. »

“They’re awesome,” she continued of her parents. “I am grateful to be their child. And I am also my own human being.

Kravitz, whose film The Batman starring Robert Pattinson is set to premiere in March, said his parents were good confidants — along with fellow musicians Donald Glover and Alicia Keys. Keys made an appearance in Sheon Kravitz for praising her friend’s “effortless” and “beautiful” trajectory: “We’re talking about understanding the pure value of who we are as women,” Keys said. “We remember that we are special, powerful and important. Everything she does is natural, honest, pure. She is the definition of a true artist.
