Just in time for the weekend, Sampha just dropped a film entitled Process which he’s been hinting at for the past little while. It’s 36 stunning minutes of Sampha performances and various vignettes of “ghostly spiritual surfer guides, crop circle dance formations, time altering narrative leaps.” The film, like his debut album of the same name, is dedicated to his late mother who passed away from cancer.
The British singer and songwriter has been busy since releasing his highly-anticipated debut full length. He just wrapped up a European tour, recently performing a stunning live cover of Drake’s now canonical “Controlla.” He also played some tracks from the album at NPR for a Tiny Desk concert and teamed up with streetwear brand Patta for a line of tour merch. Check out a preview of the film below, directed by Kahlil Joseph, available exclusively on Apple Music.
If you’re in New York City or London, you can check out screenings of the film over the next couple of weeks. Full details below:
