Childish Gambino’s ‘Awaken, My Love!’ to Be Released on Virtual Reality Vinyl
Childish Gambino’s Awaken, My Love! was a favorite album among critics and fans in 2016. Now the LP will get re-released in a special vinyl treatment.
According to The FADER, Awaken, My Love! will arrive on May 19 on a limited-edition Virtual Reality vinyl. The box set contains two heavyweight vinyl LPs, an exclusive booklet and a cardboard-style virtual reality viewer.
Using the headset, listeners will be able to watch Gambino’s 360-degree, virtual reality live performance of the album at the PHAROS Festival last year (via downloading the companion app at Pharos.earth).
Unfortunately, the special box set is sold out at the album’s official website. There’s no word if a restock will happen for this limited-edition release.
Since the album’s release, the song “Redbone,” which is featured in the horror movie Get Out, has been certified gold.
