Are You Gonna Go My Way elevated Lenny Kravitz to superstar status, cementing him as more than just a pop-culture curiosity. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s third album got heavily featured on MTV, received blanket airplay on rock radio and ultimately became one of the biggest sellers of his career.
Before Are You Gonna Go My Way’s release on March 9, 1993, Kravitz was reasonably well-known but wasn’t a household name. In 1993, during hip-hop’s golden age and the height of grunge, it may have seemed that what is commonly referred to as “classic rock” was dead. Apparently, no one told that to Lenny Kravitz. The self-styled rock-soul revivalist has always been unabashed about wearing his influences on his sleeve while still transmitting his own message.
Microshift is the Leeds band’s first new work in over 3 years and marks a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting and production, whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship and bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases which have quietly made them one of the UK’s most revered young bands.

This is the band’s fourth album. It’s the follow up to the critically-lauded Top 10 album “Get To Heaven”, an album that can now be seen to have been incredibly prescient given the current state of the world.
