Late last night, Sampha made his return to social media, acknowledging his extended absence from music, while also assuring fans that new music was on the way.

Three hours later, the London-based multi-faceted artist made good on his promise with 'Timmy's Prayer', which certainly goes a long way towards making up for his near-three-year musical sabbatical. It starts largely as a slow moving ballad-like composition before evolving into a full-on electronic production as more instruments and more elements come together for a beautiful, heart-breaking return. "If ever you're listening/ If heaven's a prison/ Then I am your prisoner/ Yes, I am your prisoner," he sings over the beat.

No word as yet on the status of Sampha's long awaited debut album but 'Timmy's Prayer' is available now on iTunes and all good digital platforms via Young Turks.
