The world leader of the Catholic church – Pope Francis – has announced some surprising news: He will soon release his own rock album called Wake Up! Although it is slightly unusual, the news is definitely no prank and Wake Up! is already available for pre-order on iTunes.

The album features original music by Don Giulio Neroni and Tony Pagliuca and features excerpts from Pope Francis’ most moving speeches.
