It’s probably safe to say if you’re a Gambino super fan you’re probably already signed up to the ballot and ready for the vinyl. But for casual fans, who don’t know what we’re on about – well, May 19th, Childish Gambino is dropping his limited edition, Virtual Reality vinyl of ‘Awaken, My Love!’
To celebrate the launch a ballot-entry-screening party was announced earlier today, with London’s House of Vans playing host on the May 17th. Enter to win via houseofvanslondon.com, and you have till the May 14 to take your chance.
Featuring 360° footage shot at Donald’s immersive PHAROS concerts last summer, staged in a custom-built, interactive dome in the desert of Joshua Tree, Childish Gambino performed the album in full for the first and only time to date.
‘Awaken, My Love!’ will undoubtedly secure its place as one of those timeless projects, echoing a feeling that Donald one had himself, “I remember listening to songs my dad would play — albums by the Isleys or Funkadelic — and not understanding the feeling I was feeling.”
