Donald Glover reveals Childish Gambino ‘will be back,’ teases new music

Despite previous comments that Donald Glover would “retire” his beloved alter-ego Childish Gambino, it seems that the Atlanta star is prepping a comeback to music.

Just after winning a Grammy Award for Awaken, My Love! in 2018, Glover first announced he wouldn’t be going by Gambino for much longer. “I’m really appreciative of [Gambino]. I’m making another project right now,” he said. “But I like endings, I think they’re important to progress.”

His conversation with E!’s Laverne Cox at the Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday (Jan. 10) changed that perspective, as Glover revealed he’s been “making music right now, I love it.”

“I’m actually working, I’m in the studio. I’ve been bringing people in, like secret people, working on little things,” he said. “I just been making it for fun right now. But soon something will happen, I promise. Something will happen.” Most importantly, he clarified Gambino isn’t going anywhere. “You don’t have to worry about that… He’ll be back,” he revealed.

It’s been nearly three years since Glover shared his surprise LP 3.15.20 — which is now revered as a classic in his discography. The energy surrounding the album bled into his immaculate four-season run of his FX original series, Atlanta, which wrapped its final season in 2022.

His efforts as an actor — appearing as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, the voice of Simba in The Lion King and upcoming work as Hypno-Hustler in a Spider-Man spin-off film — were jumpstarted by his role on NBC’s classic sit-com Community.

Now inching his way back into music, his eclectic, left-of-center interview (conducted by himself) with Interview Magazine last April initially shed light on Glover’s desire to make music again. “I’ve been rapping a lot. Producing. It’s fun again. Doing features… I did one that I don’t think is gonna come out. I think the artist, or the artist’s management, thinks the verse is too controversial.”

While he continues teasing new work, it’s exciting to know that Gambino’s return to the rap game isn’t a myth any longer.
