Childish Gambino - Awaken, My Love LPLabel: Glassnote
Regular Edition Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the third album from rapper/actor Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino. As Childish Gambino once again sheds his skin, Awaken My Love! Is a sonic evolution. It has been described as R&B meets Pink Floyd, by one journalist while others have cited an amalgam of rock, funk, and soul influences. It is a groundbreaking next step following the genre blending STN MTN / Kauai mixtape and the twice-Grammy nominated rap album. Glover first came to attention for his work with Derrick Comedy and, with the help of Tina Fey, was hired at the age of 23 to become a writer for the NBC comedy series 30 Rock. He released his first album, Camp, on November 15, 2011 to generally positive reviews. His second studio album, Because the Internet, was released on December 10, 2013. Glover was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2015, Best Rap Album for Because the Internet.
