It’s safe to say that Donald Glover’s musical persona, Childish Gambino is back in business.
Although the Internet has been piecing together clues that led to believe Gambino’s new album would drop in only matter of weeks, there was no word from Glover himself that confirmed the ongoing theories. That is, until he posted to Twitter on Wednesday to validate the record’s existence by sharing both the title and cover art.
Awaken, My Love! will serve as Gambino’s third studio album and the latest since 2013’s Because The Internet. An image of a FYE billboard floating online shows the album is scheduled to drop on December 2.
It has been a busy year for Glover. His television show, Atlanta finished its successful first season earlier this month and the FX comedy series has already been picked up for a second. Funny enough, it appears that the artwork for Gambino’s latest album was actually displayed in the background of the show’s finale, found propped up on a bookshelf.
