If you’ve kept your eye on the music world in 2016, you’d notice the distinct markings of Sampha, an artist whose big bloom of a voice has been heard only sporadically, but felt in spades nonetheless. Recently, he’s released the track “Timmy’s Prayer,” presumably off his forthcoming debut album. He’s also been heard on Kanye West‘s “Saint Pablo,” a cut so good it was added to The Life Of Pablo retroactively. And before that, his voice livened up frequent collaborator SBTRKT’s new project SAVE YOURSELF.
Today, as The FADER prepares to unveil its new cover story on the reclusive London-based phenom, they’ve shared an intimate clip of Sampha performing the devastatingly gorgeous new song “Plastic 100°C” from atop the Young Turks rooftop in London, showering his hometown with a breathtaking christening of the new track. Watch as Sampha sings “Plastic 100°C” in the clip below. For more details on the new project from Sampha himself, hit the link below to read The FADER‘s new profile. Check back for more updates on the new album, as it could very well arrive any day now.
