Sampha Gives Air’s ‘All I Need’ a Solo Piano Soul Makeover

Performing for BBC Radio 1

London-based singer and electronic musician Sampha appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions series yesterday, performing a jazz-inflected cover of “All I Need,” originally by downbeat French duo Air. He also played a solo piano version of his new single, “Timmy’s Prayer.”

“This year you can expect more music from me and me being a little more present,” Sampha told Radio 1 when “Timmy’s Prayer” came out last month. He also popped up this week as a guest on Kanye’s new track “Saint Pablo.” Watch both Piano Sessions performances below.
