He’s the man behind some of gospel’s most progressive music, but you might be shocked to learn what this Grammy Award winner listens to in his car.
During a recent interview with Kirk Franklin to talk about his latest album, Losing My Religion, Franklin revealed to us exclusively that he is a big fan of Kendrick Lamar, Adele, Justin Bieber and … Taylor Swift. “I think she is an incredible song writer,” he said of Swift.
Kirk, who just announced his first solo tour, has been taking his own music and song writing to another level. “The album [Losing My Religion] for me feels like a movie, feels very cinematic in its approach. It feels very linear,” the singer told us.
As for the title, Kirk tells us it’s a concept “I’ve been talking like that for a long time; about how a relationship with God was always supposed to be what we pursue, not the list of questions that we give people when they walk in church.”
Losing My Religion is available now.
