Pope Francis Set to Release a Rock/Pop Album: Listen to the First Single

That’s right, I said it. In Novem­ber, the Pope will offi­cial­ly release a rock/pop album called Pope Fran­cis: Wake Up! (which you can already pre-order on iTunes). And below, you can hear the first sin­gle, “Wake Up! Go! Go! For­ward!” It’s one of 11 tracks.

Accord­ing to Rolling Stone, “The Vat­i­can-approved LP … fea­tures the Pon­tiff deliv­er­ing sacred hymns and excerpts of his most mov­ing speech­es in mul­ti­ple lan­guages paired with uplift­ing musi­cal accom­pa­ni­ment rang­ing from pop-rock to Gre­go­ri­an chant.” The Pope’s songs will focus on themes that Amer­i­cans are get­ting famil­iar with this week: “peace, dig­ni­ty, envi­ron­men­tal con­cerns and help­ing those most in need.“Pope Fran­cis: Wake Up! will offi­cial­ly go on sale on Novem­ber 27th. Yup, Black Fri­day.
