UK singer-songwriter Sampha makes due on his promise to release the b-side single, “Happens,” for your listening pleasure. Rather than your typical stream, he delivers the track with a smooth visual.

Sampha rests comfortably behind a grand piano, which is the only tool he needed to emphatically sing a true-to-the-guts love song. Dark lighting and a completely red backdrop make it difficult to see much of the crooner besides his silhouette.

Over a beautiful melody, Sampha speaks on being afraid of getting his heart broken again. If anything, the tune’s authenticity is apparent.

“Happens” is the follow up to the Brit’s solo version of Drake‘s “Too Much,” a song sampled in what’s heard on Nothing Was The Same. Purchase both songs on iTunes. See the treatment for “Happens” below.
