Donald Glover continues to create his own lane with his new 1970s R&B-inspired Awaken, My Love! Soulful elements of George Clinton, Funkadelic, Tower of Power and The Isley Brothers can all be heard on the stunning project. Rapping is noticeably absent from the album, but the harmonization over twangy electric guitars, electric pianos and flutes on its 11 tracks provide a breathtaking and dream-like experience for the ages.

After Childish Gambino‘s FX series Atlanta recorded the biggest cable debut since 2013 , the rapper/actor/writer/director makes his return to music with the fantastically retro “Redbone.” Donald Glover strays away from the current landscape with outlandishly Funky production and no hint of rapping. Check for it on his Awaken, My Love! album on December 2. Listen to the cut and his other psychedelic single “Me and Your Mama” below.
