Lenny Kravitz

A NSFW getaway with Lenny Kravitz -- sound enticing? That's what you'll get in the latest video from his 2014 album Strut. Director Dikayl Rimmasch took on the smooth, brassy rock joint "Pleasure and the Pain" and ended up with this steamy black and white video. Watch it at Rolling Stone.

But it's not all skinny dipping, motorcycles, and sunshine (even though that is a lot of it). Kravitz and his girl get into their share of squabbles (get it, "Pleasure and the Pain"?) but in the end, the power of rock and roll and being really, really good looking makes things turn out all right.

Rimmasch has a pretty deep portfolio of photography and video; musically, he's directed Beyoncé and Jay Z's "Bang Bang" short film and the video for Kravitz's Strut track "Sex." 

As for Kravitz, he's currently touring Europe in support of the 2014 album. He'll be back in the U.S. on Aug. 23 for Brooklyn's Afropunk Fest, alongside Lauryn Hill, Grace Jones, Danny Brown, and Kelis
