Melbourne-based artist Sampa the Great has announced the pending release of a short film to accompany her album, The Return.

Also entitled The Return, it’s set to premiere tonight (Wednesday, April 22) on YouTube, at 11PM AEST.

This behind-the-scenes visual accompaniment apparently shares “a moment-by-moment reflection on the powerful musical and personal evolution” behind Sampa the Great’s latest release.

There will also be a live chat, in which punters can ask questions of the artist.

Says Sampa of the film: “I knew when the album was being made it was a very important time for me musically and personally. My debut album was, in a sense, a release of control of the sound direction. Going back to root inspirations stronger than ever before with a clear and concise definition of all I am as an artist and as a person. With all that, myself and my team knew the experience and journey had to be documented. Everyone behind the album, from executive producer, to artists, to studios, management and team stg. As well as the people behind the music videos, directors, producers, cinematographers and the Zambia team. We put everything together in the spirit of home – and it’s only the beginning.”

Watch The Return below from 11pm tonight.
