After three years away from music, Childish Gambino,
the five-time Grammy-winning musical alter ego of Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actor, producer, and director Donald Glover,
returns with The Swarm EP, a collaboration with singer-songwriter KIRBY, released by RCA Records.
The six-song project is inspired by and arrives on the same day as Glover’s new Prime Video series Swarm,
This follows a young woman named Dre who is obsessed with a fictional pop star that’s eerily similar to Beyoncé named Ni’jah, who’s voiced by KIRBY both in the new show and EP.
Swarm was created by Glover and Atlanta writer and producer Janine Nabers.
Chloe Bailey, Damson Idris, and more are also starring in Swarm, while Gambino and Michael Uzowuru are executive producers of The Swarm EP with co-producer Fam Udeorji.
