Titled “(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano,” the track is a beautiful ballad dedicated to a piano that was a part of Sampha’s childhood home as a child. He ultimately used that same piano to write most of the music for Process.
“This song is dedicated to my mother Binty Sisay. The more that time passes, the more I see extent of her love her me,” Sampha wrote in regards to “Like The Piano” on his Twitter account.
This week the London singer-songwriter will be serving as the musical guest on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday (January 13). Prior to this, Sampha made his U.S. television debut solo performance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last year (as well as made an appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing alongside Solange for her live rendition of “Don’t Touch My Hair“).
Sampha will also be embarking on a tour in support of Process, which will begin on February 6. Tour dates can be viewed below. Process drops on February 3.
