SBTRKT unveils new Sampha and George Riley collaboration ‘LFO

It is the latest excerpt from his forthcoming album ‘The Rat Road’.

Ahead of the release of his new album ‘The Rat Road’, SBTRKT has unveiled his new single ‘LFO’, which features Sampha and George Riley. The London artist’s fourth album is set to be released on 5th May via AWAL Records. Speaking about the new song, SBTRKT has said: “’LFO’ began with me messing around with an analogue synth about 6 years ago. The opening chords became my breakthrough moment, which captured that feeling when chords and melodies feel like they float.” “Sampha dropped by my studio around 2018 - was excited by the sonic palette of it and so we laid down some vocal ideas. Over the time since, I have probably past 70 different versions of this song! Late 2022, I got in touch with George Riley after following her music and the rest started to drop into place! Sometimes songs take 5 minutes and some 5 years to find the right components!” “Much love to Sampha for getting involved and being a constant through all my albums - over more than a decade on from our first work together - and to George Riley for being up for experimenting and creating music that doesn’t have to fit any rules. Sometimes the pieces find their way together and make sense texturally without forcing a concept on it.” SBTRKT plays a sold out show at London’s Outernet on 25th May and will appear at Field Day Festival in London on 19th August.
