Sampha is back today.
On Wednesday, the London-based singer shared a new song called "Spirit 2.0," out via Young and marking the singer's first solo release in over six years. It follows his 2017 album Process.
“It's about the importance of connection to both myself and others, and the beauty and harsh realities of just existing," says Sampha. "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.”
While Sampha hasn't release solo music since his first album, he has contributed collaborations to the likes of Kendrick Lamar's album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers and Stormzy's This Is What I Mean. He has also been working on his next album, with "Spirit 2.0" being the first released from those recording sessions.
