There has never been a doubt in our minds that Zoë Kravitz could do it all. It helps of course, when you come from a bloodline of creative – and genetically blessed – geniuses. But there's always been something about Kravitz that has set her apart as the ultimate cool girl across multiple generations. This year, she took her status to the next level, announcing her directorial debut, Pussy Island; starring her rumoured BF Channing Tatum. And as if she didn't already have enough on her plate, Kravitz has serious plans to return to her musical roots, revealing that she has new music coming.
I'll be honest, Kravitz could croon out of tune for 45 minutes straight and her music would still make it on my Spotify most played list. Thankfully, that's not the case and it's also not her first time dabbling in the music world. For those who need a refresher, the Big Little Lies star made up one part of the R&B and electropop duo, Lolawolf, before sadly disbanding. Now, she's making her return with a solo debut album and of course, ubiquitous producer Jack Antonoff had to be involved.
Kravitz opened up about her new music during an interview with AnOther Magazine, teasing that what's to come is a mix of projects she has been working with Antonoff "on and off" for a few years.
“Jack is a fantastic producer — he’s so good at really tapping into who he’s working with and not making it about him,” she shared. “Some producers want to make it about ... like, ‘I’m going to put my sound on you.’ It’s what I experienced with my band. But for him to want to help me realize what I’m hearing in my head has been a really wonderful experience and very therapeutic.”
Kravitz also revealed that the album would naturally capture a range of different emotions – spanning several years and subconsciously touching on certain events and people. Alluding that this would include her marriage and subsequent divorce from actor Karl Glusman.
“It’s personal. It’s about love and loss,” said Kravitz of her solo album. “I got married. I got divorced. Separations, break-ups are sad but are beautiful things too. It’s about the bittersweetness, that beginning and that end. It’s so complex, that space, when you’re in between heartbroken and mourning the loss of something and excited for what’s ahead of you."
In a recent interview with ELLE, Kravitz opened up further about her new album saying, "It feels vulnerable, and it’s a little scary, but making music makes me happy".
If this is only a taste of what's to come, we can only imagine that Zoë Kravitz is going to make some noise with her new music.
