Gospel singer Bryan Andrew Wilson is announcing his new EP, This Time, releasing digitally on Aug. 3 with pre-orders available now. The new album features four new tracks, including the special title song remix "This Time (In The Cut Mix)."
Describing his music style, Wilson refers to his music as "spiritual soul," because it combines the passion of faith with the sound of R&B.
"Soul singers sing out of their heartache," says Bryan Andrew Wilson. "However, they don't usually sing about a solution to the heartache which for me is God. I sing about some of the same topics R&B artists sing about but I'd like to think my music offers spiritual medicine for a sick soul."
"It's not regular Sunday morning church music," says Wilson. "A lot of people in my generation are tired of institutional church because of clergy scandals but we still have a spiritual hunger so these songs touch on feelings we all share about life, relationships, work, God."
Born in 1983, Wilson began his career as a child gospel star, first seen belting out "His Eye is on the Sparrow" with the Mississippi Children's Choir in the 1990s. After nearly a decade away from the music business, he returned to the spotlight in 2008 with an adult R&B flavored style of urban inspirational gospel music that has proven successful with his recent Billboard chart hits "Turning Away" in 2014, and "Overflow" in 2016.
Earlier this year, Wilson made a splash at gospel radio with his soulful ballad, "I Put You First," debuting at No. 29 on Billboard's Gospel Airplay chart and No. 26 on the MediaBase Gospel Airplay chart. The song was a cut from his latest full-length album, Stellar Award-nominated The One Percent, released last year.
This Time is available for pre-order everywhere now, with links to most digital music platforms available here.
