"I'm just ready to get out there and I'm grateful to still be here," Kravitz told Variety Friday. "After all the years I have behind me -- to still be so vibrant and feel so inspired -- is truly a gift. And in this very special case, it's beautiful to meet and witness the people coming up now in this generation. It's a special moment in my career."

Kravitz is working on a new album he hopes to release by fall and follow up with a 2024 tour.
