Donald Glover‘s new series Swarm may feature music from his alter ego, Childish Gambino. Teasers of the show preview a snippet of a song titled “Sticky.” It will reportedly be part of an EP that is slated to come out Friday.
“Y’all waitin on visuals, meanwhile we gettin a whole EP,” read a tweet from the Swarm Twitter account. “Original music from the series by Ni’Jah with Kirby featuring Childish Gambino available 3/17.”
For the uninitiated, Ni’Jah is the Beyoncé-like character in Swarm, which showcases the dark side of fandom. Created by Glover and Janine Nabers, the series stars Dominique Fishback, Chlöe and Damson Idris.
“We just thought it’d be fun to make a post-truth Piano Teacher mixed with The King of Comedy,” Donald told Vanity Fair in January. “Me and my brother Stephen were talking about finding someone like Isabelle Huppert, as far as risk-takers in performances.”
“A lot of people did it out of the kindness of their hearts and they did a really great job,” he continued of the show, which included Malia Obama on the writing team. “Dom, Damson, Chlöe. I was really blown away at how hard they worked on the tone, ’cause it’s a strange one.”
Swarm premieres March 17 on Prime Video.
