Attacking the game from all angles, Donald Glover picks up where his critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta left off by giving his fans just what they wanted – new music. Operating under his artist alias Childish Gambino, he returns with a promise of his new album …Awaken, My Love! and the leading single to boot.
Premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio by Zane Lowe, the latter, titled “Me and Your Mama,” is the album’s intro; a heartfelt tune in which ‘Bino professes his love to the apple of his eye, despite the detractors praying on his downfall.
From the vocals of a sounding choir to blazing guitar riffs to the soulful cool down (with tambourine in tow) in the closing moments, this record features a myriad of influences – funk, rock, soul, gospel, and the blues all included.
Gambino’s …Awaken, My Love! releases December 2. Pre-order it here. In the meantime, stream “Me and Your Mama” below.
