(Radio.com) If Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) went psychedelic for the first single "Me and Your Mama" off his upcoming album Awaken, My Love!, he's channeling a different, far funkier vibe with his second single, "Redbone."

At over five minutes long, "Redbone" is in keeping with what appears to be a longer, jam-heavy vision for his latest album. The track ventures into late 1970s/early 1980s funk territory that in some ways parallels Prince's sexy bedroom fare.

With warped guitar riffs, modified synths scraping and at times screeching and a relaxed tempo, "Redbone" continues to reveal the new musical direction Childish Gambino is exploring. As with "Me and Your Mama," he's drawing together all sorts of strands to create his own unique quilt.

Awaken, My Love! drops December 2nd. Listen to "Redbone" here.
