Pope Francis releases a pop-rock song in Latin on Rolling Stone
Pope Francis is on a mission to spread a message of hope, and not just by visiting other countries and delivering speeches. The pontiff will release a pop-rock album titled "Wake Up!" in November, and already gave a sneak peek of one of its Vatican-approved songs to Rolling Stone. The track is a five-minute-long song that features a few of the pope's speeches on top of some instrumentals, until a singer starts blasting a song in the most appropriate language for the Catholic Church: Latin.
The complete album is a compilation of 11 songs with speeches in English, Italian, Spanish and Portugese. You can currently pre-order it on iTunes and wait for its release on November 27. Don Giulio Neroni, who produced the album commented:
"For many years, I've been the producer and the artistic director of albums by the Pope. I had the honor to work with John Paul II, Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis," Neroni tells 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. For this reason, the voice of Pope Francis in Wake Up! dialogues music. And contemporary music (rock, pop, Latin etc.) dialogues with the Christian tradition of sacred hymns."
Until you wait for the album, here are some pope souvenirs you can actually get from Amazon:
