Stream Childish Gambino's highly anticipated new album "Awaken My Love."
For someone who’s flown under the radar for most of 2016, it’s been one hell of a year for Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino. The ATL rapper/actor became a father with his longtime girlfriend, created & starred in the wildly-successful FX series “Atlanta,” landed a role in the upcoming Stars Wars film, AND now just released his first album in two years called Awaken My Love.
The follow up to 2014’s STN MTN/Kauai contains no features & 11 tracks in total, including the previously heard singles “Me And Your Momma” & “Redbone.” Donald says he found inspiration for the album from the Funkadeluc music in the 70’s. “I remember listening to songs my dad would play — albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic — and not understanding the feeling I was feeling,” Glover told Billboard. “I remember hearing a Funkadelic scream and being like, ‘Wow, that’s sexual and it’s scary.’ Not having a name for that, though; just having a feeling. That’s what made it great.”
Out now on iTunes, fans can stream the soulful new album (below) via Apple Music.
