Donald Glover Talks 'Pharos' and 'Atlanta' on 'Tonight Show'

  /  08.24.2016

Donald Glover is gearing up for Pharos.

The actor-turned-rapper, also known as Childish Gambino, spoke about his excitement for next month’s music and outdoor experience during his visit to “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday (Aug. 23).

“I just wanted to do something different,” he said of the three-day event, where he will debut new music. “I have all these songs and I was like, ‘I want people to feel like it felt to be in them.'” Plus, he added, “Joshua Tree is a very spiritual place.”

The mysterious shows drew skepticism at first, but Glover assured fans it’s just a “chill” experience. “People sent e-mails like, ‘I’m not joining your cult,’ but this is simply camping,” he said. “It’s just chilling out. It’s a way for people to hear the album and experience the world that it’s in.”

Gambino’s Pharos is set to go down at Joshua Tree, Calif. from Sept. 2-4.

That wasn’t all for Glover’s “Tonight Show” experience, however. The actor also opened up about his new FX series, “Atlanta.”

“The thesis was, ‘I want to make ‘Twin Peaks’ but for rappers,'” he said.

And there was more. Glover also played a game of “Hungry Hungry Humans” with The Roots’ Black Thought and the gold medal-winning USA Olympics gymnastics team, comprised of Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, and Aly Raisman.
