Music: Emile Haynie–A Kiss Goodbye Feat. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sampha & Dev Hynes

Talk about a whole lot of solid people in one track! Charlotte, Dev AND Sampha? Emile is most noted for his work with the likes of Kanye, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Lana Del Rey… should I continue? Then this beauty is dropped and you hear so many sounds, voices and rawness. 808’s and Heartbreak chimes in but with such a more twisted, in your face emotion that Sampha creates and the ghost like sounds of Charlotte. This piece is a beautiful piece of a once solid love turned destructive/selfish. Makes you fall back and listen to the pain in Sampha’s voice. LOVE this.

 

 

Did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I did.

Did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I could.

 

Say goodbye before you leave…

 

Did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I did.

Did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I could

 

It was so magnificent when we had it all…

Video: Sampha–Happens

We should all know or be acquainted with Sampha by now and hopefully before you heard him on Drake or on his own. He was/is a half of SBTRKT and has the voice any man or woman would love to have. He released ‘Happens’ and ‘Too Much’ in a stripped down piano/acoustic and I worship him for that. There is no better feeling for me than acoustic or broken down songs. I’m such a sap for them.

I told you all my secrets lover
No I
I don’t want to have to speak to another my dear
And I
I find it hard to fully trust you
And I
I’m staring at this multi-colored cluster of lust and love
