Listen to a new record from London singer and Kanye West collaborator, Sampha.
FADER is getting ready to launch their Summer issue, which -- as is the annual tradition -- features four cover stars rather than the usual two. After revealing the first three featured artists and their accompanying stories (Rae Sremmurd, PNL, and Vince Staples), the magazine has now announced its final cover, which is graced by London singer Sampha.
The songwriter, who made his first big break through collaborations with English producer, SBTRKT, and has appeared on Drake's "Too Much," and Kanye West's "Saint Pablo," is preparing his first full-length solo project for release later this year. He has shared a performance of a new song titled “Plastic 100°C,” with FADER -- presented with a simple piano arrangement.
At one point in the story, the singer remembers being humbled by Kanye's appreciation of his music, revealing that he "listened to College Dropout religiously." The full cover story can be found here.
