Childish Gambino returns to Utah after ten years

NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Glover’s musical project Childish Gambino is back with a redesigned album and a new tour announcement.

Early Monday, Glover posted on X that ‘ATAVISTA’ had appeared on streaming platforms – and that the record is actually ‘the finished version’ of an album he released in 2020, ‘3.15.20’.

On March 15, 2020, a number of new Childish Gambino songs appeared on, but were quickly removed. A week later, “3.15.20” was officially released with guest appearances from Ariana Grande, 21 Savage and others. It too was eventually removed from streaming platforms.

Monday’s full-length release includes two brand new songs, “Atavista” and “Human Sacrifice,” according to a press release. Young Nudy and Summer Walker have new guest spots on the album.

To celebrate “Atavista,” Glover dropped a music video for “Little Foot Big Foot,” directed by Hiro Murai (his longtime collaborator also known for his work on the television shows “Barry” and “Station Eleven”) and starring Quinta Brunson, Rob Bynes, Monyett Crump and others.

Glover has also announced ‘The New World Tour’, his first tour since 2019. His run kicks off on August 11 in Oklahoma City and will visit many major North American cities before heading to Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand .

The tour concludes on February 11, 2025 in Perth, Australia.

Openers include WILLOW (Willow Smith’s musical name) and Amaarae. Tickets go on sale Friday.

This is Glover’s second Utah concert in more than a decade, having last played The Complex in 2014. He will be at the Delta Center on September 14, 2024.
