Sampha announces details of his highly-anticipated debut album. Titled Process, the ten track album will be released on Friday 3rd February 2017 via Young Turks / Remote Control Records, featuring the singles ‘Timmy’s Prayer’ and ‘Blood On Me’.
Since the release of his debut Sundanza EP in 2010 and 2013’s Dual EP, Sampha has quietly but assuredly become one of the UK’s most enigmatic and respected artists. Still just twenty seven years old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums. Now it’s time for Sampha to tell his own story and Process is set to be his defining musical statement.
Sampha also announces details of a 2017 headline tour. 2016 has seen Sampha become one of the most in-demand new live acts around, with two London shows at Corsica Studios and The Electric Brixton selling out in a matter of minutes. The world wide tour dates include Sampha’s debut Australian shows in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane set for May 2017.
Pre-sale tickets for all dates will be available on Wednesday 9th November – for full details head to sampha.com. Tickets then go on general sale Thursday 10th November.
