This comes after the rapper, who acts under the name Donald Glover, completed a successful first season of the FX show Atlanta and hosted the “Pharos Experience” sharing new music with his fans in September.

Childish Gambino (also known as Donald Glover) has had quite a year after writing, directing and starring in his own TV show Atlanta on FX — as well as being cast as the young Lando Calrissian in an upcoming Star Wars movie.
The Atlanta actor-rapper isn’t settling for success on the screen, however, and is expected to drop a new album at the start of December.
A release schedule in a local FYE lists December 2 as the release date for Childish Gambino’s follow-up to Because the Internet and appears to reveal the album’s title too: Awaken, My Love!
Reddit user _LucidDreams posted photographic evidence of the release schedule to r/DonaldGlover:
In case you can’t quite make it out, we’ve zoomed in on it for you:
Eagle-eyed fans have also noticed that the album appears to be available for pre-order on Amazon.com, though on the site, the album is simply titled Awaken My Love without any commas or exclamation marks. If the Amazon page is legit, then it looks like the album costs $11.39 to pre-order, but the page has since been taken down.
Gambino shared the “Pharos Experience” with fans in September where he performed his new music with a light show at Joshua Tree.
Since then, little word has dropped on the upcoming project. Donald Glover appeared on Ellenjust last week but didn’t do any promo for it.
He is yet to tweet any official confirmation of the album’s title and release date, so watch this space.
