After teaming with the likes of Beyoncé, Drake, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West, Sampha is ready to step out on his own with “Blood On Me,” the British crooner’s new single.
Self-produced with co-production from Rodaidh McDonald, the track is a haunting journey through a difficult time.
“I nearly lose my grip,” sings Sampha. “But you hold on to me / And assure me, and tell me that I’m okay / But I swear they smell the blood on me / I hear them coming for me.”
“Blood On Me” follows “Timmy’s Prayer,” both of which are set to appear on Sampha’s upcoming debut album, Process. Prior to the LP’s release, the soulful singer will make his solo TV debut on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” tomorrow.
For now, listen to “Blood On Me” below.
