British stars Richard Russell and Sampha have teamed up to deliver a new track. Titled “Close But Not Quite”, the record samples Curtis Mayfield’s “The Makings of You”.

 

Already debuting at BBC Radio 1, Russell told the New Yorker that a health scare inspired him to finally release his own music.
