Pope to Release Prog-inspired Rock Album…No Joke.

We didn’t believe this either, but it apparently is no joke. Yes, Pope Francis is trying to get his message out to the masses via music. If this really is true and he was a part of this project, then kudos to him. First and foremost, whether or not you are religious, this Pope is impossible to dislike.
Pope Francis will spread his message of hope, faith and unity this November with a new rock LP titled ‘Wake Up!’ The Vatican-approved LP, a collaboration with Believe Digital, 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.
Are you as shocked as we are?? Savvy move indeed, and if you want to listen to one of the tracks, look no further than the link below:
