Though little is known about Childish Gambino‘s upcoming musical endeavors, clues are beginning to surface. For one, Gambino has all but given himself to the summer, centering his latest two singles around the beloved season. It seems entirely likely that Gambino has found a theme for his upcoming fourth album, an idea furthered by the arrival of some mysterious live events.
It has been pointed out that Childish Gambino follows a single Instagram account, which happens to be “Summertimemagic.” On the page, an event flyer has been posted, revealing five dates across New York, London, and Los Angeles. Peep the official website here, and get ready to “enjoy some Summertime Magic.”
We’re still not quite sure what Childish Gambino might have in store, but given the abundance of overtly seasonal imagery, it wouldn’t be surprising if he dropped something in either late July or, the more likely candidate, August. The theory is given added credence when you consider that Gambino is set to embark on his “This Is America” tour in September, alongside Vince Staples and Rae Sremmurd. With July’s increased musical activity and a tour set for September, it would make total sense for Gambino to drop in August. Stay tuned for more news as it develops, and peep the full list of dates below.
