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!
