Video director Tanyu Muinio has added to her portfolio of work for global stars with a bold new music video featuring Lenny Kravitz. She directed a completely explicit video for his new song “TK421,” making it her most audacious work to date.
Lenny Kravitz, the 59-year-old singer, actor, and songwriter, dances fully nude in the new music video for his song “TK421.”
According to the scenario, the singer wakes up in the morning, sensually showers, stylishly dresses, and gets ready to leave the house for his affairs.
An interesting analogy: TK-421 is the call sign of an Imperial Stormtrooper in the 1977 film “Star Wars.”
A recipient of numerous awards, including four Grammy Awards and the American Music Award, Lenny Kravitz supported Ukraine at the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion. He has Ukrainian roots, as the musician’s great-grandfather was from Kyiv.
The video’s director, Tanyu Muinio, is a Ukrainian designer, photographer, and director from Odessa. She has directed videos for the likes of Post Malone and The Weeknd, Cardi B, Katy Perry, Rosalía, and others. For example, she shot a video for Foals in Kyiv.
Among her wins and accolades:
Tanyu Muinio’s video for Lil Nas X’s song “Montero” won in three categories at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards: “Video of the Year,” “Best Direction,” and “Best Visual Effects.” This work was also nominated for the 2022 Grammy Awards.
In 2022, she received two MTV Video Music Awards for Harry Styles’ “As It Was” music video.
In August 2023, she was nominated for the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards for Doja Cat’s “Attention” video.
It’s worth noting that Lenny Kravitz’s latest studio album was “Raise Vibration” in 2018 (his eleventh studio album), which reached the top spot on the Billboard 200 music chart.
Kravitz has also announced the release of his upcoming album, “Blue Electric Light,” in spring 2024. The album will feature 12 tracks, and its release is set for March 15.
