Another left turn from the actor/rapper.
Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, has released ‘Redbone’, another track from his upcoming album Awaken, My Love. Like first single ‘Me and Your Mama’, it hinges on a Funkadelic influence – one far away from the indie nerd rap of 2013’s Because the Internet.
Glover has had a phenomenal 2016. He created and starred in Atlanta, one of the most critically-acclaimed new television shows, and landing the role of young Lando Calrissian in an upcoming standalone Star Wars movie about Han Solo.
Check out ‘Redbone’ below. Awaken, My Love is out December 2.
