In a recent interview with Michaela Coel, the creator of the hit British comedy-drama series I May Destroy You, Donald Glover revealed he still isn’t “done with that [music] project.” Among various topics related to religion, spirituality, and writing new music, the two have discussed Glover’s ongoing intent to write “a Bible” that he explored with his lady “shaman.”

“With writing, I definitely feel, like on the last project and on the project I’m working now, musically too, it’s all spiritual,” he said in regards to his upbringing as a Jehovah’s Witness and that the sense of spirituality still remains even though the musician technically left the religion behind after he lost his virginity. “It’s all spiritual. A feeling of ‘I love us. I love me’. I really do.”

Gambino’s latest project 3.15.20 had all the words of praise from Coel to which he replied he may not be finished with “that [music] project” possibly alluding to his Childish Gambino moniker—even though he was vocal about his retirement after the release back in 2017—altogether, and that he previously told a woman he goes to (“almost a shaman” as he describes her) that he wanted to write a Bible.

“Yeah, I told her I wanted to write a Bible; that was years ago. I was like, ‘I just keep getting this feeling.’ She was like, ‘You have to put it out in pieces. How long do you think they’re gonna wait?’ She said, ‘You’ll know when the time is,’” Glover explained. He continued,”And then when coronavirus hit, I was like, ‘Everybody’s stuck inside,’ and I’ve been in The Temple listening to this and suddenly I thought, ‘Oh, some people will get it.’ That’s why it was really funny when you were talking about your show. You’re like, ‘I’m a little afraid…’ I’m like, ‘This is actually the only time some people would have to have that type of medicine, to be able to watch a show like that and really get it.’ That’s why I like to release stuff on Sundays.”
