Childish Gambino is well and truly one of the most generous rappers in the game right now, sending free music to his fans who buy tickets to his upcoming tour.

Back in 2017, Donald Glover warned us that his next Childish Gambino album will be his last. Undoubtedly, fans soon went into a meltdown, wondering why Gambino would deliver such awful news to them like that.

However, since that announcement, Childish Gambino placated his fans by releasing new music, including the chart-topping ‘This Is America’, and his two-song EP, Summertime Pack. So far, all three songs appear to be standalone releases, so it seems as though Gambino might just be delaying the inevitable release of his final album.

Now, as Pitchfork notes, it seems that he’s back releasing new music once again, with fans claiming that they were sent new demo tracks after buying tickets to Childish Gambino’s upcoming North American ‘This Is America’ tour.

A screenshot shared by a user on Reddit shows the message that fans saw as they received the tracks ‘All Night’ and ‘Algorhythm’.

“Here are two songs I’d like to share with you in preparation of the experience,” Childish Gambino wrote. “These songs are not complete. But it is important for u to be familiar with them in order to participate, and therefore fully enjoy the experience.”

“Please do not share these songs. These songs are for people attending the show only. Keep this within our community.”

While it’s not quite clear when Childish Gambino will be releasing the final versions of these tracks, it was announced that his upcoming New Zealand appearance in late November will be be accompanied by new music. Whether this means that November is when we’ll be seeing finished versions of ‘All Night’ and ‘Algorhythm’ is unknown, but it seems that new tunes aren’t too far away.

As it stands, Childish Gambino is set to appear on Aussie shores in a couple of months to undoubtedly blow the minds of his local fans. No word yet as to when his Australian fans will be getting these new tracks or hearing new tunes, so we might need to wait to hear the finished versions when they finally drop.
