It’s finally here. Donald Glover has just dropped his highly-anticipated new album Awaken, My Love!. The 11-track LP is full of funk-inspired sounds, with Childish Gambino handling all the vocals. On the production side, his longtime collaborator Ludwig Göransson helps him out with the project. Though Gambino is primarily known as a rapper, he states, “I remember listening to songs my dad would play—albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic—and not understanding the feeling I was feeling. I remember hearing a Funkadelic scream and being like, ‘Wow, that’s sexual and it’s scary.’ Not having a name for that, though; just having a feeling. That’s what made it great… There’s something about that ’70s black music that felt like they were trying to start a revolution.” Purchase now over at iTunes or stream it below on Spotify.
