Listen: SBTRKT dusts off unreleased Jessie Ware and Sampha-featuring, “Runaway” on New Year’s Eve

SBTRKT heralds 2014 by dusting off an old gem.

- Jan 2, 2014

December is the only month exempt from the internet’s “what else you got?” mentality, so artists tend to hold off on releasing new, non-holiday songs to avoid getting buried under the deluge of year-end lists. SBTRKT waited until the first possible moment to share this unreleased little gem, dropping it into his New Year’s Eve DJ set in Tulum, Mexico. But though he used it to herald 2014, “Runaway” actually dates back to 2011, presumably to the same sessions that birthed the excellent self-titled SBTRKT record. Those were the days before “featuring Jessie Ware and Sampha” would mean much to casual listeners, but now that those two have revealed themselves to be R&B stars-in-waiting, that’s enough to make a one-minute song snippet well worth a “Listen” post.
