What's This?

When Sampha released “Timmy’s Prayer” earlier this year, we were a bit taken back by the singer’s newly-acquired sound and sheer vocal presence. Sure, we had always known him to be a powerhouse behind the mic, but there was something different in his voice, something much deeper. Perhaps, it was a new sense of purpose.

With his latest single “Blood On Me,” the singer sounds more confident and self-assured than ever before. The song, which was produced with the helping hand of Rodaidh McDonald, finds Sampha soaring over a minimalist backdrop, replete with cowbell and some very ominous sounding piano chords—a theme which is carried throughout his lyrics.

“I swear they smell the blood on me/ I hear them coming for me,” he sings on the chorus, his voice still trembling with fear.  It’s an anxious moment, but one that highlights his versatility as an artist.
