"Looking Back On Love", the brilliant documentary on the making of Lenny Kravitz's "Black & White America" album has officially been released on I-Tunes. The director Mathieu Bitton couldn't be happier.
"I am elated about the fact that the film is finally out. It's been a struggle to get it released but now I feel is the perfect time to - as the title suggests - look back on this amazingly rich experience."
"This film to me, is about the colors and characters of life, through a musical experience. It's a record of talent and travel. A fantasy for many that was a laborious work of love and passion for us. And the response I am getting has really made it worth the wait."
"I'm happy people are finally seeing the level of Lenny's talents and the multi-instrumentalist and funny and wise man he is."
So far, the doc has reached #5 on I-Tunes sales as Bitton is hoping for a DVD release later this year, possibly a Director's Cut version.
Bitton is staying quite busy as he is working on the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and is working of his first retrospective show and catalog with Bui Gallery at a John Lautner mansion in LA Feb. 18th.
Along with that, Mathieu's official web sites mathieubitton.fr and mathieubitton.com will launch Feb. 15th. He also designed the just released Teena Marie "Beautiful" album and the Marvin Gaye "Trouble Man" 40th Anniversary expanded deluxe edition.
If that isn't enough, he is planning to bring the film to festivals in china, India, Europe and around the US and has a feature story he shot of Raphael Saadiq in the next issue of Rolling Stone Russia. He shot videos and stills for campaigns with Lenny such as Eleven Paris and the NFL.
Upcoming projects include James Brown 50th Anniversary Best of Live at the Apollo and a new Jane's Addiction record. Mathieu is an artist on the rise.-DocFB

Adam Lambert and boyfriend Sauli Koskinen took in New York Fashion Week and attended The Blonds Fall 2012 Fashion Show.
We are glad to see Adam is feeling better as early last week it seemed a flu bug bit him hard while doing promotion for his upcoming album "Trespassing" due in March.

Prince is about to embark on his "Welcome 2 Canada" tour and in advance, he has released a new song "Extraloveable" now on sale through I-Tunes Canada.
Don't you wanna take a bath with Prince?
The song clocks in at just 5 minutes long and features the lovely and talented Andy Allo (&Y) and for the hardcore Prince fan, this song is very intriguing.
"Extraloveable" was originally recorded in the early 80's by Prince and is one of his most popular bootlegged songs of all time. It seems Prince is going through his vault at his recording studios, Paisley Park, for material and surprising many fans who thought this song would never be released.
The song has been newly recorded this year so I guess you can call it "Extraloveable 2011" if you want.
The song is being released by Universal Music Group in Canada, however, we feel it is through Live Nation who struck the deal for Prince.
Prince must have major love for the Canadian fans to release something like this before his tour kicks off there. Funky!
Check out a sample of the track below:
The track can ONLY be purchased on Canadian I-Tunes Right now.
We also hear Prince has more surprises for Cananda so stay tuned!
