Today, 19-time GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, songwriter and artist, Kirk Franklin, debuted his latest song, “Try Love.” “Try Love “is the second single from Franklin’s upcoming album, Father’s Day, which will release on October 6, 2023. The track is the follow up to the album’s lead single, “All Things.”
Written and produced by Franklin, “Try Love” is a feel-good, mid-tempo anthem. The song makes listeners bob their heads while encouraging them to choose love and peace when facing life’s challenges to exemplify God’s everlasting love. The music video, which premiered today on BET Gospel, BET Her and BET Soul, reinforces the theme of the song, showing people of different ages, races and backgrounds reaching out to and connecting with one another.
In addition to his new music, Franklin hosted the Exodus Music and Arts Festival in May in Irving, TX. Having co-headlined the wildly successful Kingdom Tourwith Maverick City Music in 2022, he will embark on The Reunion Tour alongside The Clark Sisters, Israel Houghton, David and Tamela Mann and Tye Tribbett on September 28, 2023. Also, The One, the dating series that he and his wife Tammy Franklin co-host and co-executive produce, is currently airing on TV One.
