We're Finally Getting New Childish Gambino Music This Summer

Plus a trio of live shows

As he prepares for the September premiere of his new FX series, Atlanta, Donald Glover has remained largely out of the spotlight in recent months. With that, it's been quite a while since we've heard new music from Childish Gambino — over a year and a half since his last project — but it looks like that's about to change.

With the launch of a new app and website, Gambino announced a "full album experience" of live shows and new music set to take place in early September. "PHAROS is a series of live shows, one each night, on September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Joshua Tree, CA," the site explains. "Each full-length, live Childish Gambino show will be comprised of new music. Doors open at 6pm with all programming occurring in the evening and onwards."

What this means for the release of the music -- will it be packaged as an album during or after the live event, or will the only chance to hear it be at the shows? -- is still a bit unclear.

Presale tickets are set to go on sale on June 24 and will run you $99. Those who are 21 or older can camp at the venue; if you're younger than that, you'll have to find nearby accommodations.

Head over to the official site for the full slate of details.
