Lenny Kravitz has settled on his first name as the title for his sixth Virgin album. "Lenny," due Oct. 23, was produced primarily by the artist. First single "If I Could Fall In Love" is due to hit radio by the end of the month. It's Kravitz' first album of new material since 1999's "5," which peaked at No. 28 on The Billboard 200 and featured the single "Fly Away," which hit No. 12 on The Billboard Hot 100.

Since then, Kravitz also released a "Greatest Hits" set, which sported his cover of the Guess Who's "American Woman." The track was a huge success at radio, reaching 10 separate Billboard charts. Another track from the album, "Again," is up for best male video at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

The 12-track "Lenny" includes the song "Bank Robber Man," centered around an incident in Miami last fall, when Kravitz was mistaken for a bank robber by police. Other tracks include "A Million Miles Away," "Yesterday is Gone (My Dear Kay)," and "Battlefield of Love."

As previously reported, Kravitz guests on labelmate Mick Jagger's new solo album, "Visions of Paradise," due Nov. 6.
