Donald Glover Announces 2 Childish Gambino Albums Are on the Way

It’s been more than four years since the last Childish Gambino album, but Donald Glover appears to be set on ending the drought soon.

Glover hosted a Gilga Radio stream on Instagram Live with fans late Sunday (April 14), during which he announced a pair of Gambino projects on the way.

In March, the multi-hyphenate revealed plans for Atavista, which will serve as an updated version of his most recent Gambino album, 3.15.20.

“We’re releasing Atavista, but after that, there’s the final Childish Gambino album, a soundtrack for the fans,” he said.

Per Stereogum, the Atlanta creator played three songs: an unreleased track, the leaked “Human Sacrifice” and “Little Big Foot,” which is a collaboration with Young Nudy and formerly known as “35.31” off the 3.15.20 album.

The second album is an accompanying soundtrack to his forthcoming movie, Bando Stone & The New World. A radio ad was reportedly played during the stream teasing the project’s arrival this summer via RCA.

“My fans are great and have been so patient and are starving — this album is for you guys,” he said during the stream.

It was a busy weekend for Donald Glover as he popped out at Coachella on Saturday night (April 13) as a surprise guest during Tyler, the Creator’s headlining set. They performed IGOR‘s “Running Out of Time” together.

During the set, Tyler joked about how he used to hate the “This Is America” rapper until he made a song he loved. “I used to hate that n—a. Seriously. I don’t know why, I gotta go to therapy to figure it out,” he said to the crowd. “But this n—a put this song called ‘Urn’ out … I was at conflict with myself, like … How could a n—a I hate so much make something so good?”

Glover’s 3.15.20 album arrived at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The project peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and featured guest appearances from 21 Savage, Ariana Grande and more.
