Watch Childish Gambino From Front Row in Immersive ‘Me and Your Mama’ Video

Rapper utilizes VR technology to allow fans to navigate 360-degrees during live concert footage

Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) released a video for “Me and Your Mama” that designed for an immersive experience on virtual reality (VR) app, Pharos. The new song is from Glover’s just-released album, Awaken, My Love! 

Fans with a VR headset will feel like they’re watching Gambino from the front row. People watching the video on YouTube (without a headset) can also interact with the video in a less immersive, yet still intimate way, by clicking and dragging around the stage. 

The “Me and Your Mama” performance was recorded at a Joshua Tree concert in September, where Glover debuted Awaken, My Love! live over the course of six shows in three days. The concert footage was edited, assembled and VR-ed to create the Pharos experience, which the rapper and Microsoft presented at a Los Angeles event Wednesday night.

The digital version of Awaken, My Love! is out now and a limited edition vinyl version is due out in 2017. The vinyl will be accompanied by a VR headset with access to exclusive performances from the Joshua Tree show.
