Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino has announced at Governor’s Ball Music Festival in New York City that his next album will be his last album.
“I’ll see you for the last Gambino album,” he says.
On Monday, Glover told HuffPost he’s ending his music career because he doesn’t think it’s “necessary” anymore, during the promotion of his FX show “Atlanta”.
According to him:
“There’s nothing worse than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?
“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. Like I feel like there’s gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk.”
The Redbone singer adds that:
“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.”
Since starting his music career in 2008, the Grammy-nominated artist has released seven mixtapes, two EPs and three studio albums.
However he’s staying very busy working on season two of “Atlanta” and FXX’s new animated series for Marvel’s “Deadpool,” and expected to appear in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
