Get ready for new Childish Gambino this year. Variety reports that Donald Glover has inked a new deal with RCA Records and his creative agency Wolf + Rothstein that will see new work released "later this year."
Conflicting reports emerged last year that Glover's next album as Childish Gambino may be his last. While that remains to be seen, Glover has said in a statement regarding his new label home that "it was a necessary change of pace.”
Which, given Glover's insane schedule, is an understatement. His most recent album as Gambino was 2015's "Awaken, My Love!", which is nominated for Album of the Year at this weekend's Grammy Awards. And all of this as he prepares for the impending release of the second season of his critically-acclaimed series Atlanta, in addition to filming his role as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. In other words, 2018 is going to be the year of Glover.
Revisit Childish Gambino's "Redbone" below, and catch him perform at the Grammys this Sunday, January 28.
