The new tracks, dubbed “Close But Not Quite” and “Everything Is Recorded” appears on LX Recording founder Richard Russell’s (who was previously a producer who worked with the likes of the legendary Bobby Womack and Gil Scott-Heron) latest compilation project called Everything Is Recorded.
The project also brings on the talents of Mark Ronson, Brian Eno, Syd and Frank Ocean to name a few, all mixed together in a two-hour seamless track that also includes sound bites from Russell and friends. The two new Sampha tracks, which were written especially for the LP project at XL’s studio with an intimate vibe and a few Reprezent presenters watching (which goes for all other featured tracks).
