Donald Glover Takes Fans By Surprise As He Drops New Album
Donald Glover has just dropped a new album out of nowhere and the internet can't handle it.
The release took everyone by surprise, with a link to a site called donaldgloverpresents.com being shared on Twitter earlier this morning.
Glover has previously recorded under the name 'Childish Gambino', but the tweets bring fans through to a livestream of a 12-track album apparently released under his own name. It includes the previously released 'Feels like Summer', as well as collaborations with the likes of Ariana Grande and SZA.
But with the as-yet-untitled album coming at a time when the world is in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, fans have been paying particular attention to the artwork posted alongside it, which shows four panels, each depicting a world on fire.
Those who have listened to it so far, however, have been unanimous in their praise for the 36-year-old's new release.
Writing on Twitter, one person said: "Donald Glover saving the world."
A second wrote: "Wait, Donald Glover just casually released an album out of nowhere and just dropped the moniker?"
"Donald Glover live streaming his new album while everyone is under quarantine," put a third.
While one excited fan shared: "Have listened to Donald Glover presents 3 times. Gonna watch something and then have another listen before sleep."
And another added: "Donald Glover releasing a new album during a global pandemic is the cure we all needed."
But the good news doesn't stop there, there's more Glover in store.
Once you've finished his new album, you will soon be able to revisit one of the artist's best-loved shows, Community.
That's because all six seasons of the hit comedy are set to land on Netflix from 1 April.
The show, created by Dan Harmon of Rick and Morty fame, ran for six seasons and pretty soon you'll be able to watch them all.
The cult comedy, which ran from 2009 to 2015, centres on a group of students at the fictional Greendale Community College and stars Glover alongside Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Chevy Chase and Ken Jeong.
Fans of the show are already pretty excited about its move to Netflix, with one responding: "This was my The Office growing up and no matter what Ken Jeong is in he will always be Señor Chang to me."
Someone else added: "Hey, finally some good news."
Others begged Netflix to make a movie to wrap up the whole series, with one person pleading: "If you guys make a movie, I'll break down into tears, please make my dreams come true."
