Childish Gambino – ‘Me And Your Mama’

Reddit and Twitter, they don’t lie. It was romoured that Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) was cooking some kind of heat and today, he’s gifted us a burning spark that ignites a wild WTF moment, swiftly followed by a big deep head nod.

Debuted overnightby Zane Lowe as a Beats 1 World Record. Zane played the song 6 times in a row, a record for the program, with additional plays throughout the show. It’s a 6-minute slowburner of a tune that’s RnB funk-infused and dripping in jazz-soul-aggression, petering into a two-beat percussion/brass section. It’s a journey of a song and it’s a curveball move away from Gambino’s Because The Internet (2013).

‘Me And Your Mama’ is the first cut from Gambino’s third full-length record, “Awaken My Love!”, which is confirmed to be released December 2.

Which means those catching Childish Gambino exclusively at Field Day 2017 and Falls Festival come summertime will have some not-so-horrible cramming to do. You can pre-order “Awaken, My Love!” here.
