Because The Internet Turns 10

Allow me to reintroduce Because The Internet. Released 10 years ago this Sunday, Childish Gambino’s sophomore “album” is a haphazard screenplay (no longer included with the project but preserved on Tumblr), a 25-minute film prelude titled “Clapping For The Wrong Reasons,” since taken-down reference scenes, and a soundtrack divided into seven chapters, all starring Donald Glover as the Boy. The bloodshot photography is done by Autumn de Wilde, the veteran portrait artist and music video director who went on to direct her first feature film, Emma, in 2020. Ludwig Göransson, who produced 16 of the project’s 19 tracks, went from composing for Community to winning an Oscar for his Black Panther score. (You most recently heard his work in Oppenheimer.)
