Despite past rumblings of retiring his rap alter ego, Donald Glover isn’t retiring the Childish Gambino portion of his career.
In an interview with BBC Radio 1, the artist says he’s readying new material.
“I’ve been working on [new music] here,” Glover revealed. “You guys have been very instrumental in my music. So I’m very happy about that. London has been very inspirational.”
“You still have a lot more time of calling me [Childish Gambino], if you want,” he continued.
Back in June, Glover told the audience at the Governors Ball that he would be finalizing his work as Childish Gambino with his next project. “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album,” he said.
He followed with an interview with HuffPost, elaborating on his comments. “There’s nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’ Like I feel like there’s gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk. Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at Atlanta as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn’t be punk anymore. As much as ‘Redbone’ is a punk song because it’s a gospel song that’s on the radio, I’m like there’s only so far you can go before you just are the radio,” Glove addded.
Details about the next Gambino project is currently unknown.
