Will Samson Releases Beautiful New Video for his Single ‘Welcome Oxygen’

After 7 years of consistent touring and new releases, Brussels-based composer and musician Will Samson steps away from his familiar use of electronics and ambient soundscapes, to present his 4th solo album, Welcome Oxygen. Consisting largely of guitar, voice & violin recorded onto tape – this is his most raw and direct work to date.

In Spring 2016,Samson left his native England and relocated to Portugal with the intention of settling indefinitely. Being of mixed Luso-Indian descent, the country served as something of an ancestral homeland for the British-born musician. However, the proceeding months proved to be a turbulent ride. This included an accident that resulted in two broken teeth, unexplained blackouts and two days in Lisbon hospital.

After only a few months, Will booked a flight to return to England. With two weeks left in the city & with the limited equipment at hand (including 1x nylon string guitar, 1x valve guitar amp, 1x microphone, 1x keyboard & 3 simple tape machines) he began writing some new music.

In an unexpected flood of creativity, a new song was written & recorded during the first day. Seven new songs emerged within a period of as many days. They are very much like a river, soothing, clean melodies, which tie into each other and remind one of intimacy, loss and a sense of hopeful reflection.

Following the release of this new full-length, album Will Samson will tour in Europe in the fall. Checkout the tour dates here:
