Following rumors of a December release of a new album, titled Awaken, My Love!, Childish Gambino confirms the news.
The rapper-actor took to social media to reveal the album’s cover, the tracklisting and a link to the album’s pre-order. He also debuted the first track, “Me and Your Mama”, on Beats 1, before dropping it online.
Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, gave fans a first listen at his PHAROS festival in Joshua Tree, CA in September. To attend, fans utilized the scalper-proof PHAROS app, which served as a “compass” that guided guests and communicated the ethos of both the event and the new music as “a gathering of the 5 intuitives of the human experience: tribe, ritual, experience abstraction, architecture, language.”
Awaken, My Love! drops Dec. 2. Below is the tracklist:
1. Me and Your Mama
2. Have Some Love
9. Baby Boy
10. The Night Me and Your Mama Met
11. Stand Tall
