The rocker, who’ll release the new album Electric Light on May 24, is set to receive the Music Icon Award at the upcoming ceremony, where he will also perform. Previous Music Icon honorees include Jennifer Lopez, Shania Twain and Christina Aguilera.

“With 11 studio albums across a decades-long career, Lenny Kravitz has cemented himself as a global rock superstar,” Jen Neal, executive vice president of live events and specials at NBCUniversal Entertainment, says. “Whether he’s writing and performing his own hit songs or working behind the scenes writing for other industry greats, Lenny’s musical gift is truly unmatched.”

She adds, “We’re thrilled to honor him as this year’s Music Icon and look forward to seeing what he brings to the stage.”
