    "Higher" ft. Raury

    SBTRKT says:

    "This is a track called 'Higher' and we gave it that name in New York. But the collaborator is a kid called Raury, and he's about the same age now as Sampha was when I met him when he first started out. He's 17 years old, from Atlanta, and he had to get his mom's permission to even come to the studio which is quite funny, but he's super cool.

    "Actually, a friend of mine put me on to a video by this kid called 'God's Whisper' and I was just blown away by his voice so I got him into the studio to do something. I really wanted him to do some singing and then he didn't, he just did some rapping! [laughs] But, it turned out really well and something so unique came from it."
