Sam Gellaitry has revealed the final piece of his ‘Escapism’ EP series which is out via XL Recordings on April 7.

‘Escapism III’ evokes the 20-year-old producer’s cinematic scope for genre-defying productions that burst with colour as he tells his coming-of-age story.

Sam said: "I always liked when people would compare my tracks to a story or a journey. It is something I've always strived for and I love imagining my fans getting lost in my tracks just as you would with a book or when exploring.

"I also feel that having an escape and something that takes your mind off the negativity in life is essential. When I realised that my escape would turn into what I do as a living, naming the project ‘Escapism’ only felt right."

Sam is on tour this spring and will be playing at SXSW and Coachella festivals. You can listen to ‘Jungle Waters’ from the EP below and pre-order ‘Escapism III’ here.
