Childish Gambino has just dropped two new songs to help ease you through this scorching summertime heat. “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer” come as part of an EP called Summer Pack on streaming platforms. The new tracks come a couple of months after Donald Glover’s Satuday Night Live performance where he performed two different new singles. The chart-topping “This Is America” wound up getting a wider single release with an incredible video. But the other SNL track “Saturday” still only lives at that one live performance.
“Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer” both lean more towards the “Saturday” sound, with breezy R&B stylings as opposed to the hard-hitting rap of “This Is America.” The new songs are nice and pleasant, and seem catered to popping up on various Summer-themed playlists. Also we should note that “Feels Like Summer” is definitely not a cover of that awful Weezer song from last year.
All of these recent single releases from Childish Gambino have not led to any sort of album announcement. Although, he has hinted at having one in the works. Whether or not we’ll even ever get a studio version of “Saturday” remains to be seen. But hey, go ahead and give a listen to “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer” right below here.
