Early Monday, Glover posted on X that “ATAVISTA” had hit 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 dropped on DonaldGloverPresents.com but were quickly removed. A week later, “3.15.20” was officially released with guest appearances including Ariana Grande, 21 Savage and others. It, too, was eventually removed from streaming platforms.

Monday's full-length release includes two brand new tracks, “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 work on the television shows "Barry" and “Station Eleven”) and starring Quinta Brunson, Rob Bynes, Monyett Crump and others.

Openers for the new tour include WILLOW (Willow Smith's musical moniker) and Amaarae.
