CHILDISH GAMBINO CONTINUES TO INNOVATE WITH "REDBONE"

November 23, 2016

 

“Redbone” is the newest track coming from Donald McKinley Glover, aka Childish Gambino! It is the second single from the young and multitalented actor, writer, comedian, and musician’s third full-length album, “Awaken, My Love!” which is scheduled to drop on December 2nd. (1)

 

 

“Redbone” was first premiered on Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 on November 17th. (2) The song chronicles Glover’s troubles in love, where he suspects his significant other of cheating. In the chorus he sings:

 

“But stay woke

N***** creepin’

They gon’ find you

Gon’ catch you sleepin’

Now stay woke

N***** creepin’

Now don’t you close your eyes”

 

Glover’s voice in the song is pitched up one semitone and put through a filter to make it sound more electronic. (3) As a whole, the feel of the song is soulful, groovy, and sensual while also staying super dreamy. It’s a perfect coming together of past and future, intersecting right here in the present.  

 

The 11-song track list for the highly anticipated "Awaken, My Love!" album was recently detailed on Pitchfork in anticipation of its release.

 

1.     Me and Your Mama

2.     Have Some Love

3.     Boogieman

4.     Zombies

5.     Riot

6.     Redbone

7.     California

8.     Terrified

9.     Baby Boy

10.   The Night Me and Your Mama Met

11.   Stand Tall

 

Donal Glover is currently working as the creator and the star of the FX series “Atlanta”. He has also been cast as young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming “Han Solo” Star Wars movie. (4)
