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.[11]

It includes 14 original tracks, written, composed, arranged, performed and produced by Kravitz. The album 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."[9]

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[12] and becoming Kravitz's first US Top 5 album since 2000's Greatest Hits. As of January 2012, the album has sold approximately 1.5 million copies worldwide.
