Once upon a time, if you wanted to make a secret song, you just had to put it at the end of your CD, after an extra-long pause. That doesn’t really work in the digital era. Everybody’s going to know about it immediately, and anyway, you’re going to fuck up someone’s iTunes shuffle experience. So Childish Gambino has come up with an alternate method, leaving a breadcrumb trail of clues for internet detectives. Gambino released his STN MTN / Kauai mixtape last week and included a hidden a capella on his website. It synced up with the mixtape’s closing track, and so someone out there combined the two and came up with “Secret Track.” The end result sounds like a pretty good Childish Gambino song. Listen below.
