As Argentinean-born Pope Francis, the first Pope born outside of Europe embarks on his historic visit to the United States of America, news about the release of a Vatican-approved Pop-Rock album called WAKE UP has been confirmed due for release in November.

The LP which comprises mainly of the Pope’s inspiring messages in different languages coupled with some uplifting music ranging from Pop-Rock to classical Gregorian chants will make its way to music stores starting November 27 however the album is now ready for pre-order via iTunes with an instant download of the single “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!”

The album is made in collaboration with Believe Digital with the aim of allowing the Pontiff to speak to listeners about peace, dignity, helping the poor and championing the environment via an engaging 11 track musical accompaniment produced by Don Giulio Neroni.

This album reminded the people here in the Philippines of the revolutionary spirit brought about by the 1995 World Youth Day with Saint Pope John Paul II. Aside from the renewed active involvement of Catholic faithfuls in the works of the church, it was also about the vibrant new style of music that acted as a bridge among people and the clergy who journeyed together to bring the message of Christ to all. Music is truly the universal language.

Pope Francis has inspired millions outside his own religious denomination with his selfless, unifying messages that encourage climate change protection, assistance for the homeless and his hope for equality for all, even in the case of hot-button issues like same-sex marriage and immigration. I believe that WAKE UP is aimed at bringing these messages across to all people across the globe.
