Watch Sampha Cover a Chicago House Classic on BBC Radio 1 Xtra Live Lounge

Just days out from the arrival of his debut album, Sampha, is spoiling us with new visuals and live appearances. Just yesterday, the once reclusive r&b talent shared a breathtaking video for his new single “(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano.” And today, he’s the subject of a new Live Lounge segment from BBC Radio 1 Xtra. Here he performs the moody and emotional aforementioned ballad and delivers an ethereal take on Chicago house legend Roy Davis Jr.‘s 1996 classic, “Gabriel.”
