Sampha covers Air’s “All I Need” — watch

Last month, Sampha shared with the world a beautiful ballad called “Timmy’s Prayer”. Today, he’s back with more material, this time around a cover of “All I Need”, taken from Air’s 1998 Moon Safari debut.

Debuted during a recent BBC Radio 1 “Piano Session”, Sampha’s take is as fragile as the original, but injected with a bit more urgency on account of his soulful, aching vocals. In addition to the Air reworking, the UK crooner tickled the ivories to the tune of “Timmy’s Prayer”.

Check out the cover above and “Timmy’s Prayer” below.

It looks like we may be hearing even more from Sampha in the coming months. On Instagram a few weeks back, Sampha wrote that he was “looking forward to sharing my music with you again.” Stay tuned.
