The Herman Cain Gospel Album You’ve Been Waiting For Is Finally Here

Watch your back, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter! Another 2012 Republican candidate’s attempt at making sweet music has appeared on the internet, and it’s a doozy– introducing Sunday Morning*, a gospel album recorded by former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain. Precious little is know about the 13-track album, which appeared on the internet today, but the soulful baritone crooning is certainly worth a listen.

Cain had certainly not mentioned anything about a past life as a gospel singer, but a few tracks off of Sunday Morning made their way online today via the Daily Caller. It’s mostly standard gospel fare and mostly slow tracks at that, with one standout single: “This is the Day,” a fast-paced track reminiscent of “Footloose” that certainly wins the prize for funnest danceable track on the album.

It is worth noting that it not yet 100% certain this is Herman Cain– Dave Weigel notes that the Cain campaign has yet to comment on the album, but “it’s real, it was published 15 years ago by GLC Music, Selah Sound Production & Melodic Praise Records, and it is not being distributed now by the Cain campaign.” With McCotter on guitar, Cain on vocals and maybe some keytar work by Jon Huntsman, we’ve got ourselves a band!

Below the Daily Caller’s song widget (Weigel found a couple of more in downloadable format). Really, give “This is the Day” a listen!:

*not to be confused with the Maroon 5 song of the same name.
