"I've been working on [new music] here", he explained.

Hear a clip from Donald Glover's BBC Radio 1 interview below and listen to the full conversation here. "I feel like if you rush it, you'll start to get something you don't want and then you start to question why you even liked it", he told BBC Radio 1's Clara Amfo.

Having previously stated that the next Childish Gambino album would be his last, Glover was also asked about that: "It's not yet, though", he assured Amfo. Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at Atlanta as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn't be punk anymore. I'm only calling you mate, because at this point in time, I'm not sure how I'm addressing you... So I'm very happy about that.

How he has the time to work to new music is anyone's guess considering he's readying season 2 of Atlanta & about to be the voice of Simba in Disney's remake of The Lion King, but apparently he is. "You guys have been very instrumental in my music", he said.

"But to be completely honest, it's nearly ready", Glover added.

As a comic turned musician turned serious actor, who has found success in all those arenas, Glover knows that young black creatives like him are often met with skepticism in Hollywood. "London has been very inspirational". While fans were outraged at the thought of no more Gambino, it turns out it wont be for a little while longer until he hangs up the mic. "I don't know any of the songs you sing".
