Sampha’s Process was widely considered one of the best albums of 2017. Today, the UK artist is back with an intimate piano ballad, “Treasure.”
The track is off of the soundtrack for Beautiful Boy, which is an indie drama starring Steve Carrell and Timothée Chalamet. The Felix van Groeningen film is an adaptation of Nic Shef’s memoir that explores the father-son relationship between Sheff (Chalamet) and his father David (Carell), who tries to save him from meth addiction.
“Nic and David’s story, and the dynamic between them, really resonated with me on an emotional level,” Sampha explained in a press statement. “‘Treasure’ is my response, filtered through the lens of my own experiences.”
