Check Out Two New Tracks From Sampha

The smooth, soulful sounds of Sampha are back. Today the artist returns with not one, but two new tracks, serving up something new called “Close But Not Quite” and “Everything Is Recorded.” The new tracks come from a compilation project called Everything Is Recorded from Richard Russell, the founder of XL Recordings.

The tracks find Sampha doing what he does best, while the rest of the project will feature contributions from Mark Ronson, Brian Eno, Syd, and more. Sampha does his thing and provides two infectious and rather incredible tracks from the forthcoming album. Don’t sleep on these. Check out the new tracks in the stream below.
