Last night (July 2), the actor-rapper shared ‘Lithonia’ as the first single from ‘Bando Stone & The New World’, which he says will be the final album to come out from the Childish Gambino moniker.

The ‘Bando Stone & The New World’ album will also serve as the official soundtrack for a new movie of the same name. Donald Glover revealed the trailer for the film this past weekend, though the film has yet to receive a release date.

The album will arrive on July 19 via RCA and can be pre-saved now.

In May, Glover released his latest album ‘Atavista’. He took to social media to announce the release of the album, which is the “complete” version of his 2020 record, ‘3.15.20’. The album, now available on streaming, sees the musician rework tracks from the 2020 record, as well as the addition of a new song, ‘Little Foot Big Foot’.

‘3.15.20’ was awarded four-stars by NME when it was initially released in 2020: “Glover’s willingness to share such a candid moment on record is particularly interesting given his past proclivity towards keeping his private life largely offline, and may be a sign that the star is beginning to let his guard down as the outside world continues to try to peer in.

“It’s an approach that Glover is applying to his musical output at least, with the impressive ‘3.15.20’ well worth the wait — we’ll keep our fingers firmly crossed, then, that he doesn’t give in to his past evasiveness and take the record down again…”

Most recently, Glover called out the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards for having the same amount of awards as Sam Smith. “This isn’t personal but I just feel like I should have more BET awards,” he started. “I’m serious. It’s the Black Entertainment Television Awards. How much more entertaining do I have to do? Because it’s just the math of the fact.”

“It doesn’t really make sense,” the polymath added. “I have more Grammys than Will Smith, which makes no sense, but I have the same amount of BET awards as Sam Smith. Does that make sense to you guys? Me and Sam Smith are neck and neck at the Black Entertainment Television [Awards]”. Glover won for Best Music Video for ‘This Is America in 2019, whilst Smith nabbed the 2015 Award for Best New Artist.
