Sampha has dropped two fresh tracks for your listening pleasure. Taken from XL Recordings label boss Richard Russell’s project Everything is Recorded, Sampha swung by London’s Reprezent Radio to perform the two, beautiful new tracks live in celebration for The xx’s Night + Day events in Brixton this weekend.

Bringing his usual haunting vocals to the show, Russell asserts that he used a Curtis Mayfield sample, “These words I’m trying to recite, they come close but not quite,” for the track as Sampha's style reminded him of the legendary jazz artist’s vulnerability. Listen to “Close But Not Quite” (at 53:58) and “Everything is Recorded” (at 1:13:51) as part of the entire, fantastic show below.

The album will bring a plethora of musical talent together, including soon-to-be-Drake collaborator Giggs, English novelist Warren Ellis, Gorrilaz and Blur innovator Damon Albarn, jazz sensation Kamasi Washington and Highsnobiety favourite Syd. We cannot wait for it's release. Until then, watch some more clips from the show below.
