As if delivering a critically-acclaimed TV show wasn't enough in 2016, all signs point to Donald Glover delivering a brand new album as Childish Gambino next month.

Thanks to the sleuthing work of a Gambino fan on Reddit, it appears the uber-talented writer, director, comedian, actor, rapper and producer will release Awaken My Love on December 2, his first full-length album since 2013's Because the Internet.

According to a listing on Amazon Canada, the one-disc project will be released through Gambino's independent label home, Glassnote Records. No material from the album has yet to be officially released, but a song entitled "Me and Your Momma" can be heard playing in the background of thisAtlanta trailer.

Additionally, there is also a photo floating around the internet of an f.y.e chalkboard—who knew they were still in business?—which has Gambino's album listed under 12/2.

If you search for the album on the f.y.e website, however, no results pop up.

While it's been two years since Kanye West's greatest offspring delivered new material, Gambino's star has never shined brighter. In addition to Atlanta, Glover is in talks to be a part of 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and was recently cast to play Lando Calrissian in the untitled 2018 Han Solo Star Wars film. 

It's unclear if Awaken My Love will be the same material Gambino premiered at his private PHAROS event in September, but in less than one month we'll find out.

We have reached out to Nick Petropoulos, Head of Promotion at Glassnote, for further details on the release, but have not heard back as of press time.

Update: Awaken My Love has been removed from Amazon Canada, but it is still available for pre-order on Amazon Germany.
