Childish Gambino Announces New Music ‘PHAROS’

Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover knows how to keep his fans on their toes. In a lone tweet this past Friday, the actor/writer/musician shared a link to a new phone application that once downloaded, seemingly took you on a journey through space and time with a countdown to an unknown event.

As of yesterday, the app took fans on a journey to Earth, ending at Joshua Tree, California, where Gambino announced new music and a full album experience called PHAROS.

The PHAROS launch will also include a weekend of shows taking place in Joshua Tree, September 2nd through the 4th. During the event, fans are encouraged to bring their tents and camp out for the entire three-day event, or they can buy tickets to individual shows.

The app itself introduces a new way of keeping track of authentic ticket sales and uses special technology to prevent scalping.

Well played Gambino, well played. Childish Gambino
