Spotify’s Dissect podcast returns with Childish Gambino season | Music Ally

The last time we wrote about Spotify’s album-deep-dives podcast Dissect was in April, when its sixth season launched with a focus on Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ album. Now it’s season seven time, and Childish Gambino is the artist under the spotlight.

Specifically his 2013 concept album ‘Because the Internet’ – “a nobly expansive attempt at plumbing the catacombs of social media for meaning and exploring the gap between the performative avatars we present as our online selves and the offline realities of our lives” as the podcast’s blurb puts it.

The first episode has already debuted, with the full season running to 13 shows, with a new episode launching every Tuesday. There’s also a series of ‘Visual Guides’ to accompany the audio shows.

Before Beyoncé, past seasons have focused on albums by Kendrick Lamar (twice), Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator and Lauryn Hill (the latter for an in-between seasons mini-series).
