Product Description


Kirk Franklin returns with Long Live Love, his long-awaited, and highly-anticipated forthcoming album, slated for release May 2019.

Long Live Love is Franklin's first new release since 2014's Losing My Religion and also commemorates the 25th anniversary since his debut, Kirk Franklin & The Family. Long Live Love includes twelve original songs, crafted by Franklin and features him and his immensely talented arsenal of singers, which includes Isaac Carree, Eric Dawkins, Sunday Best winner Amber Bullock, along with Franklin-faithfuls Anaysha Figueroa-Cooper, Charmaine Swimpson-Broome, and new additions to the ensemble Minon Sarten, Michael Bethany, Melody Pace, and DeeDee Yancey-Mackey.

Long Live Love is led by the first single, titled "Love Theory" which was released to radio and video outlets on January 25th. The infectious, up-tempo track checks all of the prerequisite boxes of a Kirk Franklin classic in that it's catchy, timely, has a melody that stays with you long after listening, and seamlessly blends gospel and urban musical influences to create an instantly identifiable sound that has become synonymous with Kirk Franklin's music over the past two+ decades. On Long Live Love, Franklin veered off of the currently popular road, rife with high profile collaborations. Instead, he returns to his original formula of marrying great God inspired songs with the impressive and dynamic delivery of his own aforementioned singers. He wanted to return to an era when the song was the star.

Long Live Love will be available everywhere music is sold or streamed on May 17th and will return Franklin to the concert stage during a 25-city tour that will launch during his 2nd annual Exodus Music Festival in his hometown of Dallas, TX.

About the Author


Kirk Franklin

Kirk Franklin

One of contemporary gospel music's brightest and most enduring stars, singer, songwriter, and producer Kirk Franklin emerged in the early '90s leading the Texas-based choir the Family, whose platinum-selling 1993 debut, Kirk Franklin & the Family, proved not only to be a chart-topping gospel success, but crossed over to the R&B and pop charts as well. This crossover appeal would prove to be a recurring theme in Franklin's collaborations with the Family (1996's Whatcha Lookin' 4) and another choir, God's Property (1998's The Nu Nation Project), as well as in his subsequent solo career, which he announced with 2002's The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin. His fondness for collaborations within secular and Christian music circles and his innate knack for combining charismatic urban gospel with R&B, soul, and hip-hop appealed to a wide audience, which helped Franklin remain both a perennial chart success and multiple Grammy winner, which he proved over and over with albums like 2005's Hero, 2011's Hello Fear, and 2015's Losing My Religion.
