Watch Childish Gambino debut new song, cover Gnarles Barkley at Coachella
Childish Gambino performed his headlining slot at Coachella Friday night/Saturday morning in coordination the release of his new movie, Guava Island, directed by “This Is America” Grammy-award winning director, Hiro Murai.
The energetic performance was met with dips and dives of energy, as seen in the clip below where Donald Glover’s performing alter-ego hit festival goers with an intense new song possibly called “Warlords” (according to a leaked setlist) followed by a ambient, gospel rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” The new song covers tribal influences and energy through primal chanting, megaphone sounding vocals, and brooding tones.
Other highlights from the set included smoking a joint with a fan during “Late Night In Kauai;” dedicating “Riot” to Nipsey Hussle, Mac Miller, and his father, and the audience; and hugging Janelle Monáe after “This Is America.”
