Sampha shares a new single from his highly-anticipated new album 'Process.'

Sampha is set to have a big 2017 with the release of his new album Process due soon in February.


Today the British singer-songwriter is sharing a new single, "(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano," which he's dedicated to his Sierra Leonean mother, Binty Sisay.

"The more time that passes, the more I see the extent of her love for me," Sampha wrote on Twitter.

It's a delicate tune that sees Sampha singing, "no one knows me like the piano in my mother's home."
