Childish Gambino just recorded a pretty excellent P.M. Dawn cover

BBC Radio 1 has convinced all sorts of artists to cover tracks for its Live Lounge video series. Haim took on Miley Cyrus, Angel Haze did Beyoncé, and now Donald Glover has taken his turn. The former Community star known as Childish Gambino turned in a solid cover of P.M. Dawn’s 1992 hit “I’d Die Without You.” It’s so good, in fact, it kind of makes you wonder why Glover—if he's off TV comedy now—doesn't pursue more of a straight R&B sound instead of hip-hop. But as always with Glover, the heart wants what the heart wants, we guess.

Gambino's latest record, Because The Internet, is out now.
