Sampa the Great announces first album
After an EP, a mixtape and a lot of singles, Sampa the Great is ready to release her debut album. “It’s finished, it’s done and actually there’s new music that is dropping on June 6. Expect something that will be a piece to the puzzle of the full picture which is the album.”
The Melbourne-based Zambian artist has elevated onto the global stage over the last few years following collaborations with the likes of REMI, Hiatus Kaiyote, Estelle, and a European tour which saw her supporting Joey Bada$$. There are few songwriters across any genre of music than can match Sampa the Great’s penchant for songwriting. Her words are thoughtful, emotive and powerful.
