Single Review – Childish Gambino – Redbone

Donald Glover is releasing new music weekly as he unveils the lead tracks from his upcoming third studio album Awaken My Love which is due for release on December 2nd. His new single ‘Redbone’ delivers coolness and Pop beauty full of luscious and flowering melodies with a buoyant bass line. The track is effortless and yet so dynamic and is topped by Glover’s simply exquisite falsetto which ties everything together. The psych-soul feel and production of the track is enhanced by the wiry, hazy riffs at the close of the track. The fact that so many different comparisons have been drawn to the track from a plethora of different styles shows the versatility of this track and what we can expect from his upcoming album. It looks set to spring a late surprise at the end of the year.
