Childish Gambino -- better known as Donald Glover a.k.a Troy from "Community" -- has released a new single on his website, and it includes an appearance from Beck.

Titled "Silk Pillow," the track is your standard bit of Childish Gambino maudlin melodrama -- heavy bass, minor-key piano and raps about girl problems. The difference this time is that Beck raps as well, the first time many have heard the 41-year-old singer do so since his Mellow Gold days.

Per Glover's Twitter account, "Silk Pillow" is the third track off his latest Childish Gambino mixtape.

Listen to the track below.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story neglected to mention that Beck recently released his own single, "I Just Started Hating Some People Today," via Jack White's Third Man record label.
