Sampha releases a new single on Young
His first new music in six years is announced following a series of low key shows in London and New York.
Sampha has released a new single titled ‘Spirit 2.0’. It comes off the back of a number of under the radar shows titled ‘Satellite Business’ which saw him tease new music to a number of fans in both London and New York. The musician has maintained a low profile in recent years offering contributions here and there but not releasing any music under his own performative moniker.
His debut album was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and he has gone on to work with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Solange, Lil Silva, Speakers Corner Quartet and many more.
The new single marks the next chapter in his musical journey and is reflected upon by Sampha himself as follows:
“It’s about the importance of connection to both myself and others, and the beauty and harsh realities of just existing. It’s about acknowledging those moments when you need help – that requires real strength. I hope people can enjoy that feeling of someone being there for you, even if that person doesn’t have the answers. Just calling someone up without overthinking… letting go and just dancing.. wanting to see past the mundanity of things and appreciating the magic of it all, from birds nests to spaceships.”
