Childish Gambino Announces New Album & Listening Session At Joshua Tree

The wait for new music from Childish Gambino seems to be coming to a close.

A couple of days ago, Donald Glover tweeted a link to a new app, Pharos Earth, which came with nothing but a timer counting down to 6 p.m. EST Sunday.


When the timer finally hit zero, the app announced a three-day festival at Joshua Tree National Park from September 2-4 that comes with a “new music” and a “full album experience.”

Tickets to the listening session go on sale June 24 at 2 p.m. EST. They’re $99 including the tickets, fees and the opportunity to reserve a campground.

On initial home screen to the app, there are three other dots outside of Joshua Tree seeming to land on San Diego, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, but they can’t be clicked on yet. It’s unclear when or what those cities with have to do with this listening party, though.

So with an apparent new album and a TV show set to debut in the same month, it looks like Glover is set to have a busy September.
