Sampha, the critically acclaimed vocalist who appeared on much of SBTRKT’s debut album in 2011 (and on the new Drake record), just released a video for his single, Happens. The song is off Too Much/Happens, released Nov. 12 on Young Turks, and the 7″ is slated for Jan. 6.
Happens, produced by Emile Haynie (producer for Lana Del Ray, Eminem, and Drake), is neither electronic nor dance music. It is, however, a beautifully arranged composition and a testament of Sampha’s vocal abilities and versatility. Happens is on par with James Blake-level soul.
