You can’t make this stuff up. I didn’t believe it either when I first read it on CoS. If you don’t believe us just head over to Rolling Stone and stream one of the tracks.

The Pope is not just taking over the US and international news media outlets he’s also ready to drop the hottest mixtape of 2015 (just kidding, sort of). The LP titled ‘Wake Up’ is now available for pre-order on iTunes music store.

The results are of course underwhelming, but the concept is somewhat interesting nonetheless. Probably not what you’re going to throw on at a party this Friday, but cheers to the weekend anyways!

More via CoS:

Spanning 11 tracks, the album juxtaposes excerpts of Pope Francis’ most moving speeches in multiple languages alongside original music composed by Don Giulio Neroni and Tony Pagliuca of the prog-rock band Le Orme.
