Sampha releases his new AA-side single ‘Too Much’ / ‘Happens’.
Recorded with Emile Haynie in September 2013, both titles are beautifully detailed and honest piano tracks, demonstrating Sampha’s talent for creating both immediate and intimate melodies.
The demo version of ‘Too Much’ previously caught the attention of Canadian rapper Drake and, following Sampha’s production and vocals on ‘The Motion’, he requested it be sampled on his Billboard 100 topping third album ‘Nothing Was The Same’. As well as providing vocals and keys for the record, they performed the track together live on US TV Show ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’.
Following on from his acclaimed solo EP ‘Dual’, a track from which is set to appear on Solange’s forthcoming ‘Saint Heron’ compilation, his collaborative work with Koreless (as Short Stories), SBKTRT, Lil Silva and Jessie Ware, and with new solo music due imminently, ‘Too Much’ / ‘Happens’ establishes Sampha as one of the most exciting, fascinating artists moving into 2014.
