After his surprise-dropped album disappeared last Sunday, Donald Glover re-released the project to all streaming platforms.

Much like last weekend, the album reappeared onto all streaming services as an official album at 3 AM Sunday, with the title being last Sunday’s date, 3.15.20.

The project marked Glover's first official full-length release since dropping the Grammy-winning Awake, My Love! in 2016 after releasing singles including the Grammy-winning "This Is America" and the 2018 EP Summer Pack with "Summertime Magic" and "Feels Like Summer."

Despite mentioning retiring the "Childish Gambino," the album appeared under the names Donald Glover and his musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino. The individual song are available to stream (as Gambino) while a continuous playlist appears under Donald Glover Presents (similar to last week).

The album’s sequence has remained the same as last week with one minor change as it appears to start at what is assumed to be track 6 due to the long continuous play. It is hard to determine given the album's playlist nature.

On the website, it stated, “To promote a communal vibe, fans across the globe can experience the album simultaneously at DonaldGloverPresents.com for a limited time."

The message continued, "3.15.20 contains 12 tracks with appearances by Ariana Grande, 21 Savage and Khadja Bonet.”

Along with the message, it featured a photo of a cryptic handwritten essay that begins:

I met with an oracle on a friend’s recommendation She cleansed me and told me three things:

Someone would die I had a star on my head Stay close to God.

Credits obtained from streaming platform Tidal featured collaborations between known and unknown artists and producers on the mysterious project.

The credits included frequent collaborators such as his longtime co-producer Ludwig Goransson along with co-writers/co-producers DJ Dahi, EY, Chukwudi Hodge, Sarah Aarons, Kurtis Mckenzie and James Francies Jr.

The album's guest spots remained with Ariana Grande and 21 Savage along with new collaborators including musician Kadhja Bonet, Peaches Monroe and his son Legend Glover. SZA apparently did not make the final version.

The alum's reappearance on the website as well as on streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal has the same unexpected feel as its surprise appearance last week.

With people going into self-quarantine last week, Glover provided fans a distraction from all the coronavirus chaos by surprise-dropping the 12-song album in the wee hours of the morning. But just as the release appeared mysteriously, it disappeared just a mire 12 hours on a dedicated website before being removed approximately 12 hours later.
