Kirk Franklin has announced that new music is coming on November 13! Losing My Religion will be his first album in four years and he shared what is apparently some of the provocative lyrical content on his Instagram page:
“In the beginning religion created a MASK … for generations church was where we went to go HIDE …. rules without relationship is empty INSIDE. … There’s room at the cross for everyone even ME … religion is a prison, but truth sets us FREE, The next time you THINK America, PLEASE include ME. … The preacher isn’t God, religion’s first MISTAKE … ‘m losing my religion, THANK GOD … Helping YOU lose yours is my job.”
The first single off of the project, “Wanna Be Happy” debuted a month ago and broke records for the most downloaded song in one week in Gospel – selling over 11,000 units.
