Vagabon Shares New Single ‘ Do Your Worst’; Announces Shows With Arlo Parks
Vagabon, aka Laetitia Tamko, has shared Do Your Worst, the explosive new single from her recently announced upcoming album, Sorry I Haven’t Called, out 15 September via Nonesuch Records.
The song, produced by Tamko, Rostam and Teo Halm (SZA, Rosalía, FKA Twigs) combines dancefloor euphoria, breakneck-paced jungle beats, and a DJ’s sense of pacing through Vagabon’s signature lucid storytelling. You can watch the official video for Do Your Worst below.
Sorry I Haven’t Called finds Tamko reinventing herself once again and features the most playful and adventurous music of her career. “I didn’t feel like being introspective. I just wanted to have fun,” Tamko explains.
Following her intimate 2017 debut Infinite Worlds, the New York artist favored expansive and evocative electronic textures in her breakthrough 2019 self-titled follow-up. But her latest LP feels like a wholly new era for Tamko, one that’s transformational and uncompromising. Across 12 vibrant tracks she wrote and produced primarily in Germany, she channels dance music and effervescent pop through her own confident sensibilities. These conversational songs are alive and unselfconscious, a document of an artist fully embracing her vision and reclaiming her joy.
Vagabon has also announced she will be joining close friend Arlo Parks on her upcoming UK & EU tour, beginning in Dublin on 5 September and ending at a sold out show at London’s Eventim Apollo on 28 September.
In the US, in addition to her performance at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago this weekend, Vagabon is hitting the road this fall on a tour that includes a headline run in the US with support from Nourished By Time as well as Europe dates with Weyes Blood. All dates below.
