With the success of Atlanta and his upcoming role in the Han Solo Star Wars movie, Donald Glover’s acting career reached peak levels in 2016. But lest we forget that Glover also moonlights as a rapper under the alter ego Childish Gambino.
Today, Glover resurrects the project with the release of “Me and Your Mama”, a cut that some longtime fans have likened to the material of Funkadelic. His first new song in two years, it serves as the debut preview of Gambino’s forthcoming album, Awaken, My Love!, due out December 2nd.
News of Awaken, My Love! surfaced earlier this week after an album release schedule from music store FYE made its way online. As many have pointed out, the LP artwork (seen below) popped up during an episode of Atlanta last month titled “Juneteenth”. Awake, My Love! follows 2013’s polarizing Because the Internet and 2014’s EP/mixtape STN MTN / Kauai.
Awaken, My Love! Tracklist:
01. Me and Your Mama
02. Have Some Love
09. Baby Boy
10. The Night Me and Your Mama Met
11. Stand Tall
