On March 15, Singer/Actor/Artist Donald Glover inconspicuously dropped a new untitled album under his rapper name Childish Gambino. Ten hours later, it was gone.

Now, the new album is back in earnest, available on iTunes, Spotify and other streaming platforms. It is simply titled, “3.15.20.”

When he initially released the music on a cryptic website called DonaldGloverPresents.com, there was no track information or separation between songs. Instead, the entire contents of the album were released as a single, hour-long track. Listeners couldn’t fast-forward or pause.

Now that the album has been re-released, it is separated into distinct tracks, but that hour-long, play-through concept is still present. The majority of the songs do not have titles, but rather are labeled by time stamps, like “12.38,” “19.10,” and “24.19.”

The experimental album features collaborations with artists including Ariana Grande and 21 Savage. Other contributors include Ludwig Göransson (“19.10,” “32.22,” 42.26,” “47.48”), Khadja Bonet (“12.38”), and Glover’s son Legend (“47.48”). Peaches Monroee, the internet influencer who coined the term “on fleek,” is credited on the track “35.31.”

The single “Feels Like Summer,” originally released in September 2018 with a widely-lauded animated music video, also appears on the new album under the title “42.26.” The majority of the music is brand new.

The last full-length Childish Gambino album was 2016’s Awaken, My Love, which featured the hit song “Redbone (Stay Woke).” In 2018, Glover dropped the controversial single “This Is America” along with a provocative music video directed by Hiro Murai, and in 2019, he co-starred with Rihanna in the Murai-directed film Guava Island. Also last year, Glover provided the voice to Simba in the live-action remake of Disney’s The Lion King. While in the interim, Glover won two Emmy Awards for directing and starring in the genre-bending FX series Atlanta. “3.15.20” marks the auteur’s first full-length album in four years.
