UPDATED 11/10/16: Childish Gambino fans have taken to the internet to point out evidence that seems to suggest the rapper is reportedly dropping a new album in early December.
One Reddit user spotted a sign at his local FYE with Gambino's name next to an album titled Awaken, My Love, and a release date of Dec. 2. Amazon Germany, Amazon Canada, and Amazon UK along with All Music also list the same title and release date on their websites.
Gambino hasn't released a project since his double mixtape, STN MTN/Kauai, back in 2014 with his last official album release, Because the Internet, dropping all the way back in 2013. In September, he performed new music at what he dubbed, the PHAROS concerts, near Joshua Tree, California. Prior to the performance, he also told Jimmy Fallon he would be performing new music at the event.
Phones and recording devices were confiscated from attendees upon entering PHAROS, but fans posted their reviews to social media with one summarizing it as "12 songs...alien tribal vibe...all singing...no feats."
Another sign of hope came when a new Childish Gambino song appeared in an episode of Donald Glover's hit show, Atlanta. Understandably, the internet is already losing its mind at the prospect of new Gambino music. Check out some of the reported evidence below.
