For those of you who haven’t heard already, earlier this year Pope Francis announced his plans to release an album titled “Pope Francis: Wake Up!”. Sure there were a few raised eyebrows, but with the album due to be released on the 27th November the world’s first ever album by a Pope is fast approaching.
