Sampha returns with his first new solo music in six years with new single ‘Spirit 2.0’

London singer, songwriter and producer Sampha returns with a brand new single, “Spirit 2.0” released via Young. The new single is Sampha’s first solo music in over six years, following the global success of his acclaimed 2017 debut album Process.

First previewed live as part of his rapturously received “Satellite Business” residencies in London and New York, the new offering sees Sampha elevating his production and vocal ambitions in equal measures, the two pushing each other to ever greater heights.

Over kicks, snares and polyrhythmic synths that evoke a contemporary take on west African folk music, Sampha summons a dreamlike, self-motivating mantra of positivity and possibility, created to lift him up when he needed it most.

Speaking on the new single, Sampha states: “It’s about the importance of connection to both myself and others, and the beauty and harsh realities of just existing. It’s about acknowledging those moments when you need help – that requires real strength. I hope people can enjoy that feeling of someone being there for you, even if that person doesn’t have the answers. Just calling someone up without overthinking… letting go and just dancing.. wanting to see past the mundanity of things and appreciating the magic of it all, from birds nests to spaceships.”
