Richard Russell is one of the most successful record heads on the planet. He's responsible for signing everyone from Adele to The White Stripes but now he's turning his attention to a project of his own.

He's releasing music under the named Everything Is Recorded and he's recruited a number of artists for it.

Overnight, he gave us a taste of that project, debuting a song with Sampha called Close But Not Quite.

It's a beautiful, delicate song that combines Sampha's soulful vocals with a sample of Curtis Mayfield's The Makings of You.

Syd, Kamasi Washington and Giggs are also set to feature on Everything Is Recorded records, although the album isn't finished just yet.
