British singer/producer/songwriter Sampha has been dropping new music here and there over the past few months since announcing that he has a new project on the way. His latest, “No One Knows Me (Like The Piano)” should only heighten anticipation for his full-length album, Process

Over bare pianos, the singer delivers an emotional vocal performance, highlighting the raw honesty fans have come to know and love from the singer. As he told Fader, the song pays homage to an old piano in his mom’s house that he learned to play when he was only three years-old. The track was originally titled “Mother’s Home” and was written around the time that he went back to care for his mother, who was in her final months of life.

Sampha made some memorable appearances leading up to his upcoming release, including a guest spot on Solange’s acclaimed A Seat At the Table on the standout track, “Don’t Touch My Hair.” He also appeared on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo and dropped two solo tracks of his own, “Timmy’s Prayer” and “Blood On Me.”

Sampha’s album, Process, is due on Feb. 3. Take a listen to the song below.
