Gospel's rising star, Bryan Popin, in partnership with his label Little Boy Wonder Music/Flaydo Music and Fuel Music, released his highly-anticipated new album I Got Out on Friday, July 21, 2017. I Got Out is available in stores and on all digital outlets including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.
Kicking off the release week celebration, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) hosted Popin's album listening party, where he played and performed songs from the project before a packed room of Nashville music business leaders. Following the event, Popin headed out on the expanded leg of his I Got Out tour, which includes recently added concert dates.
With his sophomore release, I Got Out, the classically trained pianist and Gospel singer steps into his musical calling and shares a body of work that took almost three years to complete. I Got Out was born of Popin's reflection on "next steps" after going through a series of difficult and unexpected life challenges that could have easily shaken his faith. I Got Out isn't merely a title for this new musical offering, it also serves as the project's prophetic theme that Popin hopes will connect with and encourage every listener.
The title cut and lead radio single "I Got Out" is a swingy congregational anthem with a contemporary edge. It features production by super-producer AyRon Lewis (Kirk Franklin, James Fortune, Bishop Paul Morton Jr.). The track continues to move up Billboard's Gospel radio chart, landing at No. 6 last week, and is featured on Apple Music's Gospel A List.

I Got Out is packed with more personal, testimony-driven songs. The album's opening track "Step In The Name" will make you dance not only because of its infectious groove but also for the assertive lyrics to "just let go" and "step into your miracle."
"You're Gonna Live Again (Bella's Song)" is one of I Got Out's most contemplative tracks. It's a soaring worshipful ballad that originated out of a time when Popin's daughter Bella suffered a series of bullying incidents. He recalls, "The song reminded us that this season too will pass, that Bella would come out of this and continue to pursue her dreams." Popin's hope is that this song encourages listeners in the midst of overwhelming struggles in that very same way - that no matter what life has dealt them nor what someone has spoken over them..."they're gonna live again!"
I Got Out features top notch collaborations with two of today's most renowned gospel voices. BET Sunday Best winner Tasha Page-Lockhart joins Popin on "Beautiful Savior," an audacious cut with a sound that goes beyond the genre. Gospel music and television superstar Tamela Mann rounds out the album with a soulful version of "Alright."
