After being nearly completely silent for two years, Sampha is making 2016 his comeback year. The British crooner already collaborated with SBTRKT, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean, on top of which he’s returned to releasing solo material like “Timmy’s Prayer” and “All I Need”. The resurgence continues today with a third new solo track, “Blood On Me”.
“Blood On Me” is an anxious yet grooving number, something that could score either a thriller or a down-note in drama. Sampha seems to be entirely on edge in the lyrics, panicked and paranoid as he sings, “I swear they smell the blood on me/ I hear them coming for me.”
Self-produced alongside Rodaidh McDonald, the song comes from Sampha’s forthcoming debut full-length, Process. Take a listen below via Spotify.
