Childish Gambino's PHAROS concert event in September was shrouded in mystery, and details are still hazy from those who attended. Now, with a forthcoming album Awaken, My Love! arriving in stores this December, it appears the further purpose of PHAROS is coming to light.

Today Gambino released the virtual reality video "Me and Your Mama," which submerges the viewer in the PHAROS concert experience. Only available via his smartphone app PHAROS Earth, the virtual reality performance requires a headset to be seen. Get it for iPhone and Android.

This new video comes with the announcement that Awaken, My Love! will be released on "virtual reality vinyl." We have no idea what that means, but we really hope it's somehow Nintendo Virtual Boy compatible.
