Donald Glover on Creating New Music: “Nothing’s as Easy as It Used to Be”
He did share, however, that he still loves making music.
Donald Glover recently sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and opened up about his new process for creating music.
Nearing the end of the 12-minute interview, Kimmel asked the Awaken, My Love! artist if he was working on a new Childish Gambino album at the moment, which received an uproar from the audience. Jokingly responding with a “No” answer at first, he clarified that he’s still “making a lot of music.” He continued, “I really love doing it. I’ve made a bunch of it, it’s just really how to experience it at this point.”
Kimmel then asked if Glover if had to schedule his time in order to pursue his many artistic paths, and Glover confirmed that he is required to nowadays. “It used to just flow but now I have kids, so nothing flows anymore,” he explained. “Nothing’s as easy as it used to be so I do block off, you know, time now, because I’m like, ‘Oh, I wanna be here for them at this time and I wanna make sure I see this game.’ So like, that takes a lot of scheduling.”
