Palm trees, a sea breeze and freshly squeezed orange juice would all complement “What Kind of Love” – a new, unexpected release from Childish Gambino – quite nicely. Glover fans will undoubtedly recognize the peaceful, acoustic-based song from a brief (albeit tantalizing) piece of the soundtrack to “Clapping for the Wrong Reasons”, a short film that Glover wrote to serve as an external accessory for his December-released album, Because the Internet. Behind the soothing instrumentation lies a cynical – yet truthful – outlook on life.
Gambino states that he decided to unveil this record because of an unnamed third party who was illegally selling an unfinished version. Stream “What Kind of Love” below.
