It’s been quite the year for Donald Glover. After starring in his his critically acclaimed television show Atlanta this past summer, and playing a major role in last fall’s blockbuster The Martian, the multi-talented artist is finally returning to the music world with his much anticipated album Awaken, My Love! under his Childish Gambino pseudonym.
Glover announced on his website a Virtual Reality Limited Edition vinyl that’s now available for pre-order before the album release December 2. What the augmented reality part means, we don’t know, but the album comes on two 45 RPM heavyweight 12″ vinyl records, with a limited edition 17×11 poster. Currently, the price is set at a hefty $59.99, however that may change depending on how the package content is finalized, according to the website.
Judging by the first two tracks released from Awaken, My Love!, “Redbone” and “Me and your Mama“, the new record might be a departure from his mixtape days, moving towards experimental, funk-focused music.
1. Me and Your Mama
2. Have Some Love
9. Baby Boy
10. The Night Me and Your Mama Met
11. Stand Tall
