Not only is Swarm buzzing on the horizon, but Childish Gambino fans have new music to look forward to thanks to the Prime Video series’ impending unveiling.
Recent teasers for the series, co-created by Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, include snippets of new Gambino music. More specifically, here’s how Prime Video words it in each teaser’s respective YouTube description:
“Original music from the new series Swarm by Ni’Jah with Kirby featuring Childish Gambino”
Even more specifically, the track in question is titled “Sticky.” On Monday, the official Swarm Twitter account announced that we can expect “a whole EP” on Friday.
To be clear, Ni’jah is a fictional (and notably Beyoncé-like) superstar from the series, which is slated to debut on Prime Video later this week following its SXSW premiere earlier this month. Early into the festival, Prime Video took over the Austin Motel in Texas to commemorate the new series with an activation inspired by a key location from the story. The activation also featured the playing of original music from the show. Get a look at the Swarm-ified space below.
In the coming days, expect a deeper look at Swarm amid this writer’s SXSW coverage. Stay tuned.
The series was created by Glover and Nabers, who previously worked together on the excellent (and deeply missed) series Atlanta for FX. Amid the airing of the final season last year, Complex’s Karla Rodriguez spoke with Nabers about saying goodbye to the acclaimed series and more. Revisit that here.
