Surprise! Donald Glover's New Album, 3.15.20, Is Now Available to Stream
Donald Glover’s new album, 3.15.20, is officially here! On March 22, the rapper made the 12-track LP available to stream on all platforms, a week after temporarily sharing it on donaldgloverpresents.com. The collection of songs features artists such as Ariana Grande, SZA, and 21 Savage. He previously collaborated with Grande on her song “Break Your Heart Right Back” and worked with SZA on the “This Is America” music video.
Glover’s latest musical project, a follow-up to 2016’s, “Awaken, My Love!”, includes previously released tracks “Feels Like Summer,” “Warlords,” and “Algorhythm” (though most of the song titles are numbers that listeners are trying to decode). It also appears he chose to keep his Childish Gambino moniker after announcing its retirement in 2017. Some fans are speculating that 3.15.20 is the last hoorah for the sobriquet. It is worth noting that while the cover art for the album is simply a white square, a YouTube video of the entire LP shows his real name in a retro rainbow-colored stylization. Glover also changed his Twitter header to the same visual.
When Glover first dropped the LP on donaldgloverpresents.com, it played on a continuous loop with a four-panel black and white illustration of a panicked city. Now, the site shows a snapshot of a tale written by Glover. What does it all mean? Listen to 3.15.20 to see if you can decrypt the inner workings of Glover’s mind.
