Childish Gambino confirms new single, ‘Lithonia’

June 28th, 2024

Childish Gambino has confirmed the release date of his next new single ‘Lithona’ from his forthcoming album ‘Bando Stone & the New World’.

The rapper-actor-comedian, real name Donald Glover, took to Instagram Live last night (June 26) to announce that the new single is set for release on Tuesday (July 2) and opened up about his annoyance with the streaming service Audiomack for allegedly leaking it ahead of time.

“‘Lithonia’ is coming out July 2nd,” he said (transcribed by Hiphopdx). “That got leaked. It kinda pissed me off, to be honest. That’s another reason why y’all don’t get good shit. For what? It’s not valuable enough. It’s just a single.”

He continued: “I know who did it, Audiomack. Fucking, no soup for you. You’re not getting the album now. That’s what time I’m on.”

Glover also went on to share that “the problem is we’re not having fun,” and explained that the rollout for his new album is  “mostly about fun.”

“I’m trying to have fun because I feel like there’s just people not having enough fun… When I was a kid there was, like, big things that would unite us and I just feel bad for y’all. I feel bad for some of y’all,” he said.

It appears that ‘Lithonia’ will serve as the lead single of ‘Bando Stone & the New World’ which is set for release sometime later this summer. ‘Bando Stone & The New World’ will double as the soundtrack for his upcoming movie of the same name, which is set to be released this summer.

Elsewhere, the musician referenced the feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar, saying that most of what people connect over is “fucked up.”

“Even this year the most fun we had was from a fight. [It] was a song from a fight, from a rap beef, which I enjoyed every minute of. It was very fun. But, still, kind of negative, in a certain light, I guess,” he said.

Last month, Glover released his latest album ‘Atavista’. He took to social media to announce the release of the album, which is the “complete” version of his 2020 record, ‘3.15.20’. The album, now available on streaming, sees the musician rework tracks from the 2020 record, as well as the addition of a new song, ‘Little Foot Big Foot’.

‘3.15.20’ was awarded four-stars by NME when it was initially released in 2020: “Glover’s willingness to share such a candid moment on record is particularly interesting given his past proclivity towards keeping his private life largely offline, and may be a sign that the star is beginning to let his guard down as the outside world continues to try to peer in.

“It’s an approach that Glover is applying to his musical output at least, with the impressive ‘3.15.20’ well worth the wait — we’ll keep our fingers firmly crossed, then, that he doesn’t give in to his past evasiveness and take the record down again…”
