Early yesterday the first single off the album, “Me and Your Mama”, premiered on Beats1 Radio and can be streamed below. The track is a total of six minutes long, transitioning between 3 distinct sections. The first section can be described as an ambient trance, leading into grunge-induced blues which is evaporates back into an ambient trance.
Judging by the first single, and his incredible work on new FX series “Atlanta”, this album should be well worth the wait. Check out the tracklist for Awaken, My Love below. It’s unclear if there will be no features, or if they are too yet to be revealed.
Gambino has not released an album since 2013’s Because the Internet. Look for details to roll out quickly, however it won’t too surprising if the details are cryptic and abstract.
