Childish Gambino has revealed a second song off his forthcoming album, Awaken, My Love!

That track is now No. 3 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart and No. 4 on the streaming service’s U.S. Viral 50 chart.

Awaken, My Love! will be Gambino’s first studio album since the release of the twice-Grammy nominated because the internet in 2013. The rapper followed that with mixtape Kauai in 2014. 

Awaken, My Love! is set to release on Dec. 2 via Glassnote Records. Listen to “Redbone” below.
