Childish Gambino releases “Redbone,” the second song from his forthcoming album “Awaken, My Love!”
This afternoon Childish Gambino debuted his new song “Redbone” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. After “Me and Your Mama,” it’s the song he has released from his forthcoming album Awaken, My Love!One attendee of Gambino’s ‘Pharos’ listening event in September noted the album’s “minimal rapping.” Between “Redbone” and “Me and Your Mama,” Gambino is clearly taking his cues from the ’70s and has yet to deliver one (rap) bar. “Redbone” sounds like a Barry White song as much as anything else.Awaken, My Love! is out December 2. Here is everything we know about it so far.
Childish Gambino has confirmed the album title and also revealed the artwork via social media. It is still not confirmed whether it will release on December 2nd.
Previous story (Nov. 7): Childish Gambino fans have been waiting for new music forever now but he seems more focused on his hit TV show Atlanta at the moment.
The drought may still be over as the actor/rapper is reportedly releasing a new album titled Awaken, My Love! on December 2nd. A user on Reddit discovered the new album listing on All Music which also mentioned the release date.
Upon further investigation, we found out that the album is also available for pre-order on Amazon UK with Glassnote as the label, as we would expect. There is no official word on the album yet and that isn’t surprising since the new norm is to keep things under wraps till very late.
Donald Glover hasn’t released new music in a long time, except for the little tease of a new song he did on episode 5 of Atlanta back in September. If Awaken, My Love! is indeed the title, that would also mean that Pharos was a name solely for the camping event he organised at the Joshua Tree National Park in California in first week of September.
