Franco is releasing an EP under the duo Kalup and Franco, which is him and Kalup Linzy, a video/performance artist who frequently performs in drag.

Franco invited Linzy to perform as part of his guest stint on General Hospital.

The EP comes out July 12 and features two songs: "Rising (Both Sides Now)" and "Turn It Up (So We Can Turn It Out)". The duo will music videos for each that will feature "surprise guest cameos."
