UPDATE Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino New Music Post Removed from Website, Confusion Reigns


UPDATE: The music has been removed from the website. Some kind of tug of war is going in the Glover group. It’s a mess.

EARLIER: Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, has posted new music to a website. He’s bypassed streaming services and his record label.

The music, untitled, is free. It’s not downloadable and isn’t divided into playable tracks. It’s just a block of music, without titles. It’s unclear where this leaves Sony Music and RCA Records, to which Glover was signed for his last release.

One listen so far, and, of course, it sounds great. But a proper release of some kind would have helped. Just a little information.

The site is There’s a track featuring Ariana Grande.

Watch for updates.
