“Colourful, brilliantly messy, and a fully committed hodge-podge of psych and spacecake croons, ‘Awaken, My Love!’ is unlikely to shed further light on exactly what Childish Gambino is at heart, but by now, Glover’s erratic approach is surely part of his central appeal.”

— DIY Magazine

“Awaken, My Love!” is the third full-length album from Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover.

A fresh fusion of funk, jazz, soul, hip-hop, blues and RnB. Three years after the release of his follow-up record Because The Internet, Glover has unearthed new layers by blending the ever-enticing aspects of an old-school flavour with only the finest of modern day techniques.

From the funk-drenched corkers including ‘Riot’ and ‘Boogieman’, oozing with swagger, to the scorched guitar work in ‘Zombie’ and ‘The Night Me And Your Mama Met’, every track enters alternate worlds.

Having worked with acclaimed producer Ludwig Göransson, together, they’ve created an extremely diverse, 11-track collection of individual masterpieces. Glover reminds us all that the only limitation that you confront as a creative is your own imagination and desire to explore – and “Awaken My Love!” leaves no corner untouched.
