Original story: On Monday, a variety of sources were triangulated out of nowhere to form a pretty solid-looking rumor that the third Childish Gambino album Awaken, My Love, would see a Dec. 2. Now the actor/director/rapper/writer/stand-up Donald Glover has acknowledged the release on Twitter, sharing the cover art and educating us that the Sufjan Stevens–y title actually ends with a Sufjan Stevens–y exclamation point. Other than that, no info.
Glassnote Records, CG's label, also spotlighted the reveal:

We already assumed Awaken, My Love! would be the album that Gambino debuted at PHAROS, his Joshue Tree, Calif. festival/"album experience" event back in September. The through-line with this cover art and that stage outfit have us surer:
Gambino's last album was December 2013's Because the Internet. In October 2014 he dropped a combination mixtape/EP, STN MTN / Kauai. Earlier this year, he became a dad, debuted Season 1 of his FX series Atlanta, and got cast in both Spider-Man: Homecoming and the Star Wars Han Solo origin movie, as a young Lando Calrissian.
