Pope Francis to release progressive rock album ‘Wake Up!’

PicturePope Francis is collaborating with Believe Digital, a European-based record label that will produce his progressive rock album Wake Up!, which will be released November 27th worldwide. Wake Up! will have 11 tracks featuring clips from some of the pope’s most memorable speeches in various languages. The music will be composed by Don Giulio Neroni and Tony Pagliuca of the rock band Le Orme. 

Don Giulio Neroni discussed the collaboration with Rolling Stone,
“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. 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.”  Rolling Stone premiered the album’s first single “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!”
A portion of the money raised from the album sales will go towards a support fund for refugees and can be pre-ordered on iTunes.Pope Francis: “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!” Wake Up! Track List
