Donald Glover has his hands full, and apparently he’s cooking up new music and an even better second season of Atlanta.


During an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo show on Tuesday, Glover spoke about living in the United Kingdom for the last year and his final album as Childish Gambino.

“I’ve been working on that here,” he said. “You guys have been very instrumental in my music. London has been very inspirational.”


Amfo was a bit confused during the interview about what name to call him, but Glover assured her that Childish Gambino isn’t done just yet.

“You still have a lot more time of calling me that if you want,” he said.

On top of making music, Glover recently wrapped up the upcoming Han Solo movie, in which he portrays Lando Calrissian, but most fans are just eager to catch his Peabody Award-winning series, Atlanta, the second season for which is delayed until 2018.

“I’m not the type of person to rush anything,” Glover said. “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. I’m not gonna make anything until it’s ready. But to be completely honest, it’s almost ready. I’m pretty happy with a lot of the things, and I think it’s better than the first season.”

I don’t know, man, the first season of Atlanta was pretty fucking good. Topping the Juneteenth episode or that shit with the invisible car will be pretty hard.
