Sampha Premieres “Courtesy” on BBC1

Sampha, who took off from where he was last year by linking up with Drake, yesterday stopped by BBC Radio1 to debut his latest song, “Courtesy” as part of a 28-minute mix he did for the station. The song comes in at the 19:50 mark of the player below and is a soulful, instrumental affair, stripped down to Sampha and the keys as he croons over the melodic arrangement. Recorded live at Maida Vale with Benji B, the track is a furtherance of the more soulful side of Sampha since his days working in a more up-tempo atmosphere as part of SBTRKT. One thing is for sure, we should be seeing plenty of him for awhile to come.
