Stream & Download Childish Gambino's Must Hear Funk & Soul Album 'Awaken, My Love!'

Childish Gambino Album

Childish Gambino has released his 11-track album Awaken, My Love! which taps into a new creative direction from the multi-talented artist. Up until this point, Childish Gambino has made hip-hop. In short, this album changed that.

He took a more musical approach, channeling a strong 1970’s Parliament Funkadelic sound that blends soul, funk and rock. Listeners will hear psychedelic guitar, groovy basslines and an array of synthesizers throughout the spacey, and somewhat trippy, project. Gambino surprises us with his vocals which he overlays with several distortion and filter effects. 

The LP, which includes previously-released singles "Me And Your Mama" and "Redbone", was originally debuted live at Joshua Tree for his PHAROS shows. Awaken, My Love! wraps up an impressive year for Gambino, aka Donald Glover, who also launched his critically-acclaimed Atlanta TV show where is he the executive producer, writer and lead actor. Enjoy!

Watch Childish Gambino’s Live Performance Of "Me and Your Mama” in Virtual Reality

Childish Gambino Virtual Reality

Childish Gambino has shared a virtual reality performance of his "Me And Your Mama" single ahead of his much-anticipated album Awaken, My Love. The VR experience was added to his PHAROS Earth app. 

The video comes from his PHAROS shows at Joshua Tree and gives us the first official glimpse into the insane event. Although some fans were able to sneak in footage from the cell phone-banned show, the VR experience truly showcases how unique the event really was. He has also made a limited edition VR vinyl available. We're not exactly sure what that means, but it could mean exclusive access to view the entire PHAROS event in VR.

Gambino played in a dome with tribal-themed projections and costumes. He really took a different route on the album singles as he's gone from making rap to funk and soul-inspired rock that's reminiscent of Parliament Funkadelic and Prince. See some screen shots below of the experience and download the PHAROS Earth app to see it all for yourself. Stay tuned for Awaken, My Love and enjoy!

Stream Childish Gambino's Soulful Second Single “Redbone” Off Upcoming Album

Childish Gambino Press shot Curtain

Childish Gambino is back with another single “Redbone” off his forthcoming album Awaken, My Love! due Dec. 2. This follows up the project’s addicting lead single “Me and Your Mom” that heard Childish explore a new, rock-influenced sound we haven’t heard from him previously.  

We knew Childish was experimenting with new sounds following fan’s reactions of his PHAROS shows earlier this year, but we didn’t really know what to fully expect. “Redbone” finds Childish channeling his inner soul as he sings buttery-smooth falsetto vocals over a funky, rolling live instrumental production. His voice on this sounds so different from his previous releases it had us asking if it was really him singing at first. We’re loving his exploration of new sounds on these new singles and cannot wait for the full album. Enjoy!
