Pope Francis Is Releasing A Pop-Rock Album In November

This is not a joke.

Looks like someone answered our prayers.  

According to Rolling Stone, Pope Francis will release a "prog-rock-infused album" called "Wake Up!" in November of this year. The 11-song album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Premiering on Nov. 27, 2015, it will feature Pope Francis' "words and prayers."

The album is a collaboration between the Pope and Believe Digital, an independent artist distribution company in Europe. According to Don Giulio Neroni, who worked on the album, this is not the first time a Pope has released music. 

"I had the honor to work with John Paul II, Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis," said Neroni in Rolling Stone. "As in the past, for this album too, I tried to be strongly faithful to the pastoral and personality of Pope Francis: the Pope of dialogue, open doors, hospitality."

Head over to Soundcloud to hear the Pope's first single, called "Wake Up! Go! Go Forward!" now. Or, buy the single here on iTunes for $1.29.
