Best New Track: Timmy's Prayer - Sampha

Delivering his first solo material since his 2013 Dual EP, celebrated R&B artist Sampha has finally returned with a new single, "Timmy's Prayer." While over the years the UK singer has lent cameos to Drake, Jessie Ware, Katy B and SBTRKT, to name a few, he had kept mum until an Instagram posted on Monday promised new music (which, as it turned out, dropped later that day).

Carried by his throaty croon, "Timmy's Prayer" is a deep-beated soul ballad that thumps along solemnly until electronic components mix their way in midway through. It's an honest, heartbroken song that doesn't explicitly allude to his hiatus, but hints that a part of himself might have spent these three years finding himself.
