O tempora o mores! Pope Francis hits the music world with a pop-rock album! Ok, not really. But an album featuring hymns and his speeches set to pop-rock music will be released in November. It's all approved by Vatican and Francis himself has collaborated. The first "single" that you enjoy below is based on his speech in South Korea last year. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the album’s producer and artistic director Don Giulio Neroni said: “I tried to be strongly faithful to the pastoral and personality of Pope Francis: the Pope of dialogue, open doors, hospitality.” Musician Tony Pagliuca, founder of Italian progressive rock band Le Orme, confesses it's been an interesting artistic challenge to work with the Pope. The pontiff belts out his hits in Italian, English, Spanish and Portuguese - where's Latin? The album has 11 tracks. Now let all those rumours that Vatican will join the Eurovision family restart again..... :-)
