Kirk Franklin returns with Long Live Love, his long-awaited, and highly-anticipated forthcoming album, slated for release this Spring. 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 (12) 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.

"If you're driving around in Sydney, there's a chance you might catch me bopping and dancing badly in my car to the sound of Kirk Franklin's single, 'Love Theory.' Listening to that tune is like being caught in the middle of one of the biggest praise parties ever! Kirk is back with the upbeat, innovative, and soulful gospel grooves we've come to love and expect. It's pretty hard to listen to this album and not feel encouraged, spiritually filled, and happy at the end." - Koorong National Music and Media Manager, Aaron Guilmette.

Kirk Franklin

For nearly two decades now, the multi-platinum-selling Kirk Franklin (born 1970) has been successfully bridging the gap between gospel, hip hop, pop and R&B. This irresistible fusion has given Kirk a chart-topping mainstream popularity that is unusually strong for a gospel and Christian artist. To date, Kirk has won seven GRAMMY Awards, 35 Stellar Awards, 11 Dove Awards (CCM), five NAACP Image Awards, two BET Awards, an American Music Award, and numerous others. And yet, even with these accolades, Kirk remains, at heart, close to his humble beginnings. He is never far from that frightened and forlorn young man who didn't always know which way to turn, which is what makes him one of the most relatable and respected messengers in his field.

He says: "In my music, I always try to have something for everyone and to embrace where I come from, where I am and where I'm going. I'm a fan of all music - traditional gospel, hip hop, pop and Bach. Every song speaks reality for me."

Kirk Franklin takes his role as one of God's chosen administrators of musical ministering - strengthening, soothing, uplifting and healing - with the utmost sense of purpose and pride. "It's very humbling and a serious responsibility," he states. "I try to make sure my life is lining up and that my priority always be to please God. When you spend too much time trying to be a people pleaser that's when you mess up. I know that if my life is pleasing to The Lord then 'I Am' where I'm supposed to be."
