UPDATE: We now have an official release date.

Sampha has confirmed that his new album LAHAI will be released on October 20. The project will be a total of 14 tracks.

My Middle Name
My next musical chapter
My next album”

Back in June Sampha broke a six year hiatus when he returned with the release of his new single “Spirit 2.0.” “It’s about the importance of connection to both myself and others, and the beauty and harsh realities of just existing,” he said in a press release. “It’s about acknowledging those moments when you need help—that requires real strength.
