Pope Benedict to release an album in time for Christmas | World news | The Guardian
He probably won’t try to get down with the kids but record company bosses are hoping that their latest signing will prove popular, not least because he comes with a ready-made audience of about a sixth of the world’s population.
Geffen Records, whose roster of stars has included Guns n’ Roses, Elton John, Donna Summer and Snoop Dogg, yesterday announced that it had signed a new artist: Pope Benedict XVI.
Rather disappointingly, the pope’s album will not be cover versions – Summer’s Heaven Knows, perhaps, or Dogg’s Neva Have 2 Worry. It will, though, feature a singing pope for the first time on CD.
