Good news if you’re a fan of Childish Gambino, the musical alter-ego of Donald Glover: He has debuted a 360-degree video of “Me and Your Mama,” from his new album, “Awaken, My Love!” The video offers a preview of the immersive experience created as a collaboration between Childish Gambino and Microsoft, which will be available in the new year. It takes viewers into a three-day concert event that took place in Joshua Tree in September called “PHAROS.”
To get the full effect, download the Pharos app, which is available for Windows, Android and iOS devices. You can also use a virtual reality headset. The full experience will be available to fans through buying a special vinyl edition of the album.
This is the latest project in Microsoft’s Music x Technology program, a series of collaborations that explore emerging modes of artistic expression and celebrates advances in interactive technology.
