Sampha has been quiet for a while, but he broke his silence today after not posting on his social media accounts for over a year, with a note that said he is “looking forward to sharing my music with you again.”
It turns out he doesn’t have that much looking forward to do, because he just dropped a new track called “Timmy’s Prayer,” a relatively stripped-back ballad featuring his signature soulful vocals that are sure to remind everybody why they missed him so much in the first place: Before this past March, his previous appearance on a song came in 2014, when he contributed to four tracks on SBTRKT’s album Wonder Where We Land.
The note he shared earlier today reads, “Hello, It’s been a while. I’ve had a lot to process these past couple of years, as we all do. And it’s hard to articulate sometimes. I wanted to say thank you to all the people who’ve shown me so much love and support. I’m looking forward to sharing my music with you again.”
