New Childish Gambino album Atavista.

Rolling Stone

Glover initially released some of the tracks from Atavista along with other songs in an album called 3.15.2020, named for its release date.

He quietly released the album at the beginning of the pandemic and then withdrew it from streaming platforms when Atavista was released.

Songs like “Feels Like Summer” were left out of Atavista but survived as part of EPs like Summertime Pack released by Glover in 2018.

On Atavista, Glover polished songs, adding features by artists like Ariana Grande, 21 Savage, Summer Walker, and Young Nuddy for variety.

He used these sounds and voices to discuss a multitude of topics, from love, loss and gun violence.

Songs like “Sweet Thang”, “Little Foot Big Foot”, “Human Sacrifice” and “The Violence” each take on a topic, and attempt to explore Glover’s experiences and emotions.

Additionally, Glover has begun establishing himself as a force in the R&B genre with songs like “To Be Hunted” and “Human Sacrifice”.

Atavista continues his journey into adulthood from his initial album, Freaks and Geeks, and demonstrates the growth Glover has seen during the last several years.

We look forward to where this more adult Childish Gambino goes from here and the topics he will look to grapple with moving forward.
