Childish Gambino keeps us on our toes and offers ‘Virtual Reality’ vinyl

Last night, Childish Gambino left the TL with a lone tweet with a link to his website.

The big reveal, is the update to the Awaken My Love merchandise. Fans can now place orders for the ‘Virtual Reality Limited Edition Vinyl.’ Take advantage of the pre-order to receive the 11 track album on two 45 RPM heavyweight 12″ vinyl records and an exclusive 17×11 poster. Check out all the details at the Awaken My Love website.

Gambino seems to be one step ahead and continues to produce high quality art. What’s most important, is that it all seems to be on his own terms. Think about it. He really has put “doing my thing” into practice. From the wonderful reception and performance of his FX show Atlanta, to the sonics of single releases like “Me and Your Mama” & “Redbone“, to hosting his own projects/shows (as opposed to exclusive deals through Apple or Tidal), and finally saying “Hey, here’s a vinyl package of my awesome new album,” he is seemingly winning on all fronts.

Awaken, My Love! is set to drop this Friday.
