We have so impatiently been awaiting the release of Childish Gambino’s follow up album to his 2014 STM MTN / KAUAI mixtape and news of the release has finally emerged, kind of. Earlier today, acclaimed pop and hip-hop engineer Andrew Dawson publicly accredited himself with the mixing of many past and forthcoming albums including Kanye’s TLOP and Childish Gambino’s forthcoming untitled Glassnote release. Since mixing is one of the final steps before releasing an album, there’s hope that this is only a sign that new Childish is near.
The engineer’s credits were quickly revised, a possible indication that they pre-emptively leaked that the album is in the works, however Dawson insisted to DJ Booth that the rumors of his involvement or knowledge of a new Gambino album are false.
”That was entered into Andrew’s discography as a placeholder by an intern at my old company and was never meant to be a representation of Andrew’s work (current or forward moving). The error has been corrected on Andrew’s website and we have nothing to report on the status or existence of another Childish Gambino album. Sorry for the confusion.”
