Although we’ve heard multiple stories about Donald Glover possibly retiring his stage name, Childish Gambino, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, the soulful musician/actor says that he has some brand new music on the way.
Gambino has been living in London for quite some time and during the interview, he stated that living there has inspired his new work. “I’ve been working on that here,” he said. “You guys have been very instrumental in my music. London has been very inspirational.”
Earlier this summer during his performance Gov Ball, he stated why he was retiring his stage name for good.
“There’s nothing worse than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’” Gambino explained. “You know, I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.”
In addition, the Atlanta star not only has new music coming on the solo side but he also has some new tunes coming with friend and fellow musician, Chance The Rapper. It doesn’t seem like Gambino is going anywhere.
