Childish Gambino's "Awaken, My Love!" album dropped less than six months ago, but the Donald Glover conversation has since turned more predominantly toward the Golden Globe–winning Atlanta and his incredible film slate: the Han Solo movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming, the new Lion King.

So hopefully you didn't forget that 'Bino's third album has a virtual reality vinyl coming. The release date is May 19, and the $60 (limited edition, sold out😢 ) product fulfills its promise by providing a VR headset and "instructions to access exclusive virtual reality live performances from the PHAROS Experience." See the listing here.

The two-LP vinyl, above, also has a glow-in-the-dark cover and exclusive booklet, both of which further the "Awaken, My Love!"/PHAROS aesthetic. Childish Gambino previously released a PHAROS Earth app featuring a virtual-reality video of "Me and Your Mama" being performed at the 33-year-old's festival-y "album experience" in September '16.
