The #DopePope, #PopeofthePeople and general cool guy, Pope Francis is making his way through the USA, taking selfies with people and kissing their babies.
And now, as reported by The Rolling Stone, the pope will be spreading his message of faith and hope in a “prog-rock-infused” LP called Wake Up!. The Vatican has approved the LP which will be releasing 27 November 2015. Pope Francis collaborated with Believe Digital and the LP will feature hymns and parts of the pope’s speeches, accompanied by music “ranging from pop-rock to Gregorian chant“. Take a listen to the first song off the LP entitle “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!”:
The “song” features the pope’s speech delivered to a South Korean audience and Pope Francis is heard saying:
Wake up! Wake up! The Lord speaks of a responsibility that the Lord gives you! It is a duty to be vigilant. Not to allow the pressures, the temptations and the sins to dull our sensibility of the beauty of holiness. No one who sleeps can sing, dance and rejoice.
