Hollywood superstar Donald Glover is giving fans something to smile about. The hip-hop entertainer has come through this weekend with a surprise, new album release.
Heading into Sunday, Childish Gambino dropped his new untitled release of fresh tracks. Instead of going the traditional multiple streaming platform route, Glover’s project is available through his website.
It looks like Childish Gambino is back with a new album. A bunch of new songs are streaming on a website called DonaldGloverPresents.com, and the link to the site was retweeted by Glover’s manager Fam Rothstein. The website is streaming Gambino’s 2018 track “Feels Like Summer,” as well as songs that appear to feature Ariana Grande and 21 Savage. (Fans also claim that SZA appears.) (Pitchfork)
We have so many questions about this release, which was verified by Glover’s management, according to NME. It does not appear to have a title and is only available on the Donald Glover Presents website streaming on a loop. The 12-track release features collaborations with Ariana Grande, SZA, and 21 Savage. Among the tracklist are Childish Gambino’s 2018 track “Feels Like Summer,” as well as his song “Algorythm” which was used in a series of ads for Google Pixel. (Refinery 29)
Wait, There’s More
The project is his latest since putting out a few solo tracks and a full-fledged studio release in 2017. He also recently teamed up with R&B queen Beyoncé for their “Mood 4 Eva” collaboration.
Glover’s last full-length LP was 2016’s “Awaken, My Love!” Since then, Childish Gambino swept the Grammys with his 2018 hit “This Is America,” winner of both Record of the Year and Song of the Year. A string of one-off singles, including “Feels Like Summer” and “Summertime Magic.” Childish Gambino’s most recent release was 2019’s “Mood 4 Eva,” a collaboration with Beyonce and Jay-Z for The Lion King: The Gift companion album.
