Sam has shared a new single, “Hands Up”, which premiered on BBC Radio 1 in late July. The single is taken from the forthcoming EP "Quantum Physical Volume 2". Listen to ”Hands Up” here:


“This song is a direct reaction to what has been escalating in the media over the past few years. There's been so much violence propagated against people. It was making me upset and angry to the point where I couldn't function... I couldn't even get out of bed sometimes. I had to make a decision to shift my mind. I had to be grateful for another day and for the people I love in my life. I couldn't take on all the burdens of the world. I can't change the system. I just had to live my life in a way that was joyful and honest. That's what I can do. It's a cliché but change does come from within. I believe that.”  Says Sparro, “We need conscious music right now. We need a new generation of Curtis Mayfields, Marvin Gayes, Mos Defs, and Erykah Badus.”
