This is dope: Sampha has linked with Kahlil Joseph to create a dope short film based around his new album Process. The singer-musician delivered the Apple Music clip by way of the below message:

It’s been a genuine pleasure to work with Kahlil and his whole team. They’ve been so humble and sensitive with me in creating this film. I’m really proud of it and happy it’s being shared. Thank-you to Apple Music and everyone at Young Turks and Pulse Films who have pushed for this and believed in it enough to make it happen.
