Sampha's last solo release, the Dual EP, arrived in 2013. Since then he's appeared on songs with Drake and Katy B; he also showed up on an unreleased Kanye West track that the rapper previewed earlier this year at Yo Gotti's album release party. But mostly Sampha has stayed quiet.

He issued a statement on social media today suggesting that new material is forthcoming. "I've had a lot to process these past couple of years, as we all do," he wrote. "It's hard to articulate at times. I wanted to say thank you to all the people who've shown me love and support. I'm looking forward to sharing my music with you again."
