Childish Gambino to Sell 'Virtual Reality Vinyl' of New Album 'Awaken, My Love!'
With Childish Gambino's third album Awaken, My Love! due this Friday (Dec. 2), the multi-hyphenate (real name Donald Glover) is offering his fans a unique experience. Early Wednesday morning (Nov. 30), Gambino directed his followers to his Pharos app (he also erased his entire Twitter history).
There, fans were gifted with footage from his Pharos concert in September, when he performed at Joshua Tree in California. Both iPhone and Android users can access the footage as it enables everyone to watch the show from a 360-degree perspective.
On Tuesday (Nov. 29), Gambino also dished out several options to purchase his latest offering. Fans can cop the album for $11.99 or a bundle with a limited edition poster retailing for $14.99. A "virtual reality vinyl" of the LP will also be available for $59.99 (though subject to change, according to the site) and won't be delivered 'til a to-be-announced date in 2017.
After attracting TV junkies with the first season of his FX hit series Atlanta and securing a second season, Glover delivered two strong singles under his rap moniker Childish Gambino with "Me and Your Mama" and "Red Bone."
