One of the most hyped up artists (artists, not only musicians) in this year, Donald Glover, becomes once again Childish Gambino and presents first track from upcoming third studio album. Listen to “Me and Your Mama”.
It’s a magnificent year for ‘Bino. He has created first, really strong, season of FX’s series Atlanta and was casted as Lando Carlissian in Han Solo Star Wars prequel movie, in between performed few times and introduced some of music from forthcoming album (at the PHAROS festival in Joshua Tree, CA). Now we’ve got details of “Awaken, My Love!” (but “Force Awakens, My Love!” would be more appropriate title, I guess) andcould listen to first song “Me and Your Mama”.
This track is really something different. We don’t hear any of rap influences, instead receive a combination of classic rock, soul and funk. Glover’s smashing with power of his voice and then calm melody is arriving. This multi-genre record has to be completely new opening for his artistic persona.
In few moments Childish Gambino sounds like Prince’s and Michael Jackson’s pledge of love. We are awaiting for whole new record. It must be good.
Childish Gambino album will be released on December 2nd via Glassnote Records and will contain 11 new songs.
