A music album of Pope Francis' "words and prayers" comes out Friday.

It starts with Francis saying “buona sera” to a crowd, and then delves into a hodgepodge of string sections, mystical keyboards, choral selections, twinkles, Andean flutes, pop rock, nu-Christian hymns and prog rhythms spliced with Pope Francis’s speeches in Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian. 

The underlying message of the album is for people to wake themselves up and go forward, which will resonate with believers and non-believers.

Pope Francis is currently making a six-day trip to Africa.
