Actor/musician Donald Glover, formerly known as Childish Gambino, teased his fans last weekend when he temporarily released 12 new tracks on his website. Less than 24 hours later, the album disappeared.
Now, a mysterious countdown has begun on the “Donald Glover Presents” page.
While no further details are provided, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out something special is on the way. Those who were able to listen to the surprise release, heard contributions from SZA, Ariana Grande and 21 Savage.
Glover’s last album under the Childish Gambino moniker was 2016’s Awaken My Love! In 2018, Glover declared he was retiring the name during a Grammys press conference, saying, “I’m really appreciative of this. I’m making another project right now, but I like endings, I think they’re important to progress.”
It’s likely the countdown will end with that final project, but we’ll just have to wait and see. Find the countdown here.
