Pope Francis to release an album

Did you hear the good news? (Heh, get it? Bible joke!)

Yup, you read that right. Pope Francis (yes, the actual pope) is planning on releasing a prog-rock album later this year. Proving yet again he’s the coolest pope in history, the album will consist of contemporary music and sacred hymns. You can even listen to the first song online.

Reactions are mixed regarding the announcement.

While some are super pumped,

others are making requests.

The album comes out on Friday, November 27th, and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. I guess rock is not the Devil’s music anymore.
