Childish Gambino has announced plans for an extra gig in London next February.

He will now play the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 4, 2014, in addition to previously announced shows at Gorilla in Manchester on February 5 and KOKO in London on February 6. Scroll down for ticket details. Tickets for the new show go on sale at 9am on December 19.

The artist – actor and musician Donald Glover – released his new album 'Because The Internet' earlier this month. Childish Gambino's second album features 19 tracks, including collaborations with Chance The Rapper and Azealia Banks. It is the follow-up to his 2011 debut LP 'Camp'.

In October Childish Gambino posted a hand-written seven-page letter on Instagram listing his anxieties and desires for his new album, saying he's scared that "people hate who I really am" and that people would find out "what I masturbate to". Most surprising of all, however, was his admission that he "doesn't want to rap".

He later explained the letter in an interview with NME, insisting: "I'm not having a personality crisis, more like a personality burst." He also confirmed that he is not actually giving up his music career - but simply objects to calling himself a "rapper". He continued: "I just don't like the term 'rapper'. It exists but I'm definitely not a rapper. Rap is all balances of coolness and who can do the most with just their bravado. I don't have that. That's not my game. I'm not going to make certain things 'cool'. But it means that I am going where rappers can't go."

Childish Gambino will play:

London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (February 4, 2014)
Manchester Gorilla (5)
London KOKO (6)
