Childish Gambino is allying with Sony Music for his next record, which will be put out by the major’s RCA US division via a partnership with the actor/rapper’s LA-based management firm Wolf & Rothstein.

The deal sees Gambino – aka Donald Glover – shift over to Sony from Glassnote, which released his previous three albums, backed up by Universal Music distribution.

The Rothstein of Wolf & Rothstein said that they were attracted to Sony because the major was willing to enter into more of a partnership with the management firm. According to Variety, Fam Rothstein noted “being malleable is important to us, and that’s what this partnership allows”.

Meanwhile RCA CEO Peter Edge says: “Donald is undoubtedly one of the most talented, multi-faceted, young entertainers of this era. We are excited to join forces with him and Wolf & Rothstein to usher in the next phase of Childish Gambino’s musical career”.
