No cover art, no song titles … no problem. That seems to be how the artist formally known as Childish Gambino decided to drop his new album.
Exactly a week after one of the most cryptic album announcements EVER, Donald Glover officially released his highly anticipated fourth studio album called 03.15.20.
If you remember March 15 was the day Glover released—then removed— his album on a website called DonaldGloverPresents.com.
Now the full length album is here to stay. Over the weekend, a countdown clock showed up on his website without explanation. And Sunday at the stroke of midnight, when the clock expired, the album reemerged—as a continuous stream on his website.
On streaming services fans can find the project under the artist name Donald Glover Presents. But what you won’t find is album artwork. Instead it’s just a white square. There are also no song titles except for the tracks Algorythm and Time. 10 of its 12 songs have been titled simply with their time signatures within the album.
As previously reported Ariana Grande, 21 Savage and SZA have features. So how did people respond this time on Twitter?
Donald Glover’s new album is the cure for the Coronavirus

Leave it to @donaldglover to drop the album of the year a week before we go on lockdown where we’ll have nothing better to do than binge “3.15.20”
