If you’ve been riding the recent electro wave, you know about Sampha—one of the U.K.’s rising electronic heavyweights. After collaborating with pop royalty from Drake to Solange and dropping two EPs, including last year’s excellent Dual, he’s now working on a full-length that shows off not only his impressive production skills but his cool, breathy voice and his equally-striking talent for songwriting.
Today he released Slow Lights, the first splice we’ve heard from his highly anticipated upcoming solo album. The tune is a synth-heavy, highly-produced instrumental stroll, with Sampha occasionally dropping in with hazy, a-lyrical vocals. Keep an eye out for the album (we will), and give the track a listen below.
