On May 19th, Childish Gambino will release his critically-acclaimed third album, ‘Awaken, My Love!’, on limited edition, Virtual Reality vinyl. A world-first, it features the incredible 360° footage shot at his immersive PHAROS concerts last summer, which took place in a custom-built, interactive dome in the desert of Joshua Tree and saw Childish Gambino perform the album in full for the first (and currently only) time.
Details of a ballot-entry-screening party have also been confirmed today – House of Vans, May 17th – and are available to win via houseofvanslondon.com until May 14th, when those who are successful will be notified. Spotify have also worked with Childish Gambino to invite his biggest UK fans to the event.
Childish Gambino will next headline New York’s Governor’s Ball festival in June, with the VR vinyl offering fans a tantalizing window into the unique world of ‘Awaken, My Love!’ (and the mind of its creator).
