Lenny Kravitz's McCartney duet

Lenny Kravitz wants to duet with Sir Paul McCartney.

The 'American Woman' singer - who owns a mixing desk from London's Abbey Road Studios, famously used by The Beatles - wants the legendary musician to fly out to his Miami home to record a song with him.

Lenny said: "All the Beatles' albums were recorded on that mixing desk and I got it when my first album 'Let Love Rule' came out in 1990, as I came into a bit of money. I'd seen a documentary in England made about it by one of the sound engineers and I knew I had to have it.

"It's an incredible piece of gear. At the time I blew all of my money on it but if you offered me £5 million for it today I wouldn't take it.

"When you see pictures of John Lennon sitting at the desk it's just priceless. I'd love to bring Paul McCartney back to my place and make a record with him. How cool would that be?"

Kravitz's new album 'It's Time For A Love Revolution' is released next month.
