Sampa The Great will release new album 'The Return' on September 13th.
The Australian artist has assembled a broad cast to construct her new LP, with production credits from Silentjay, slowthai producer Kwes Darko, Clever Austin (Perrin Moss of Hiatus Kiayote), Blue Lab Beats and Syreniscreamy.
In addition to this, 'The Return' also features two full collaborations, with Ecca Vandal and London jazz collective Steam Down.
Out on September 13th, the record is led by new single 'Freedom', a soulful bumper that connects to the core of why Sampa makes music.
"'Freedom' is about one of the most important talks you will ever have as an artist in this industry... The balance of earning a living and expressing your artistry, and what you’re willing to compromise through it all. It’s a blessing being able to create and express yourself through the arts and an even greater blessing when that artistry can provide a livelihood for you, but it’s likely you’ll reach a point in your career where you’ll be given a choice to compromise your artistic expression."
"How much you’re willing to compromise is a conversation discussed in 'Freedom'."
Tune in now.
'The Return' will be released on September 13th.
