A few days ago, a Reddit user (_LucidDreams) shared that a new Childish Gambino record could possibly be on the way and posted a photo from an F.Y.E store that listed a number forthcoming projects, including a Gambino project titled Awaken My Love under the date 12/2. The discovery ignited a search for more information and on Wednesday (Nov. 9), Childish Gambino sent out a cryptic tweet confirming the project's name.

"Awaken My Love," Gambino tweeted with a photo of a glossy female adorned in a white headpiece, heightening the mystery around the upcoming project. The rapper/actor released an app called Pharos Earth where fans could purchase tickets to his private shows -- so private that phones weren't permitted -- where he reportedly performed songs from his anticipated new album.
Childish Gambino recently wrapped up his highly acclaimed breakout show Atlanta, and is set to play Lando Calrissian in a new Star Wars film. If Awaken My Love is indeed Bino's upcoming record, it will be the first full-length project since his 2013 album Because the Internet and his 2014 mixtape STN MTN.
