Childish Gambino returns with second single "Redbone" for forthcoming album

Two weeks removed from the season finale of Atlanta and the surprise drop of first single "Me And Your Mama," Childish Gambino has returned with a second single titled "Redbone" from the forthcoming album Awaken, My Love!, which will be his first release since 2014's STN MTN / Kauai and his first album since 2013's Because The Internet.

With every work he has released, the 30 Rock writer-turned-rapper has tweaked his sound more and more, never satisfied with staying within one realm. This new single is similar in vein to "Me And Your Mama," opting for a soulful, spacey sound but also modifying his voice to have a much higher, almost squeaky, pitch. "Redbone" debuted as Annie Mac's Hottest Record on her show on BBC Radio 1 with the host herself being particularly fascinated with the Prince influence she felt was heavy in the song.
