Maintaining a united front against racism, xenophobia, and discrimination and championing unity and equality worldwide, Lenny Kravitz teamed up with the UN Human Rights Office for the recent official release of his new single “Here To Love (#fightracism).” Today he reveals a powerful and timely cinematic music video for the track.

The video, which is directed by Kravitz, is aimed at celebrating diversity, while simultaneously showcasing a unified human race. “’The Here To Love’ video is a procession of humanity, showing our beautiful differences while celebrating our oneness”, says the “Here To Love” singer.
The piece is also Kravitz’s music video directorial debut; a powerful message that he will continue to spread throughout 2020 as his Here To Love World Tour kicks off this spring.
In advance of Human Rights Day on December 10th Lenny Kravitz released an edited version of his track “Here To Love.” The original notably appears on his critically acclaimed eleventh full-length album, Raise Vibration—available everywhere now. Amplifying the lyrical message of love and inclusivity, the GRAMMY® Award-winning legend joined forces with the United Nations Human Rights Office to support #FightRacism—a campaign that promotes tolerance, equality, and diversity.
Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” “Here To Love” reaffirms this universal principle and illustrates the call from Kravitz,“We must all unite for we are one creation, we must join the fight, together we are strong, we must do what’s right in every situation, love each other’s lives as you would do your own.”
“Here To Love” will be the theme song of the UN Human Rights Office’s #Fightracism campaign throughout 2020 and beyond.
The song also remains a worthy addition to his venerable catalog. Notably, Rolling Stoneproclaimed the album version as “one of his most striking vocal performances in recent years,”and Paste noted,“the sentiment is so needed and so noble that it still manages to raise a few goosebumps by the time the rousing finish rolls around.”
