Childish Gambino Previews New Album Artwork, Drops First Single ‘Me and Your Mama’

Last night, Childish Gambino took to Twitter to hint that he is dropping music for the first time in a long, long, loooong, time.  The tweet is an image of what was later confirmed to be the new artwork and with the caption “…Awaken, My Love!”, the title of his upcoming album.

The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s ‘Beats1 Radio’ on Apple Music, with Zane confirming the track would be off of the forthcoming album.  Zane was clearly feeling the new music, and played it back a record 6 times in a row before moving on to a new song.

Gambino has quietly kept himself hard at work, between Atlanta, his new show on FX that  just wrapped up it’s first season, and his Pharos festival that took over SoCal and sold out in 6 minutes. Rumors had been spreading  about new music coming out, but last nights tweet was the first real hint from the man himself.

Word on the street is that “…Awaken, My Love!” is dropping on December 2nd. Hopefully that’s true because as great of an actor Donald Glover is, we are in some serious need of new music from him
