He has been fascinated by the music world once before this summer, but why are you stopping there? Childish Gambino has released two new songs on Wednesday because the guy is clearly unable to lean back on his laurels and enjoy praise. The newly released tracks fell from nowhere, bright and early on July 11, and are part of what Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, has christened the Summer Pack according to his own tweet the announcement of the fall.
And if it's not clear from the label and July release that this new music should be the soundtrack to your rooftop party or relaxed beach trip, the songs are called "Summertime Magic" and "Feels Like Summer." According to Pitchfork, both songs will be released on the artist's upcoming fourth studio album, which is rumored to be his last. Or at least, his last under the childish Gambino nickname ̵
The release date for his upcoming album has not yet been released, but instead of letting the fans wait without having anything to do, Gambino decided to release two tracks directly on his own YouTube channel, without even a premium Play around with streaming service.
He just announced the tracks, with a tweet of the phrase "Summer Pack" and link to a page where fans can hear his new stuff. So far, it's just the sound that was released without knowing when or if music videos will be released, but that's more than enough now, because those songs are killer.
At first glance, they both have a similar back vibe, perfect for throwing on your summer party. But if you dig a little deeper, there are some subtle differences. "Summertime Magic" is exactly what you would expect, with a springy beat and sunny, optimistic lyrics expressing summery sweet adoration for an unnamed woman:
"It's your summer magic / Let me feel like this / Girl, your love / girl, oh you are my world "
But as the music website Genius points out, while" Feels Like Summer "has a similar relaxed atmosphere, it carries a much darker and more serious message , Where the first track of the Summer Pack is optimistic, the second one is realistic. He draws attention to the problem of climate change with texts that seem subtle and more explicit at first glance. "You can feel it on the streets", he sings in the first lines and adds: "On a day like this, the heat / It feels like summer." But then the message intensifies, causing water scarcity, global warming, pollution and bee mortality.
"Every day gets hotter than the previous one / No more water, it goes down / down / air, which killed the bees we depend on / birds were made to sing, wake up without sound / no sound"  ChildishGambinoVEVO on YouTube
The warning hides behind sleek vocals and a foot-tapping beat, making it sound the same on the surface as its predecessor on the EP. But as you can see, "Feels Like Summer" actually has more in common with a previous Gambino song, the critically acclaimed and record-breaking "This Is America," released in May.
Childish Gambino's music is almost always deeper than fans might think at first listen. It is a safe bet to assume that when you listen to his music there is a meaning that hides beneath the surface, and these new tracks are no exception. So kick her at the barbecue and thank Gambino for blessing fans with more tracks ahead of his album, but do not miss the bigger message of global responsibility.
