As previously reported, after a sleuthing Reddit user discovered an advertisement at FYE that showed Childish Gambino releasing an album in December and the release also appeared on Amazon Canada for preorder, fans grew antsy about the then possible release.
Further adding to the speculation, earlier in September at his camping music event Pharos at Joshua Tree, Gambino previewed new music to select fans after revealing to Jimmy Fallon that, “I have all these songs and I want people to feel like it felt to be in them.”
Although no further details have been released about the album regarding tracklistings and possible features, fans can expect nothing short of genius, when it comes to a project from Childish Gambino.
Awaken, My Love! is slated to drop December 2nd and will be Gambino’s first project in two years, with his previous projects STN MTN and Kauai both dropping on consecutive days in October of 2014.
