Sampha to Release New 7" via Young Turks, Shares Lead Track
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
London singer/producer Sampha released his debut Dual EP back in July via Young Turks, and this month, the artist will return to the label with a two-track single. Recorded with producer Emile Haynie, the two vulnerable cuts lay Sampha's considerable vocal talents over gorgeous piano chords. A demo version of "Too Much" was sampled by Canadian hip-hop artist Drake for a song of the same title on his Nothing Was the Same album, and b-side cut "Happens" is a similarly bare piano ballad. "Too Much" b/w "Happens" will see an official release on November 12 via Young Turks, and the new video for "Too Much" can be found below.
