Pope Francis is all set to release a music album called ‘Wake Up!’ this year in November.
The pontiff would not be actually singing in the Vatican-approved album, but excerpts of his words and prayers, in multiple languages, will be paired with musical accompaniment from other artists, E!Online reports.
‘Wake Up!’ is already available for pre-order on iTunes with an instant download.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, producer and artistic director of the album, Don Giulio Neroni said that 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.
Sources have revealed that a portion of the albums’ proceeds would be donated to ‘a support fund for refugees.’
