Vagabon Collaborates With Rostam
Vagabon, the project of Lætitia Tamko, has shared a new track “Carpenter,” today. The song, which was co-produced by Tamko and Rostam (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Clairo, Maggie Rogers), is her first newly created solo music since her 2019 self-titled album. Vagabon is currently working on a new album, to be released later in 2023. This March, Vagabon will join Weyes Blood on her In Holy Flux spring tour, which includes dates in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Austin, TX and more.
“”Carpenter” is about that humbling feeling when you desperately want to be knowledgeable, you want to be advanced, you want to be mature, forward thinking, and evolved,” Tamko explains. “It’s about being confronted with your limitations. It’s about that A-HA moment, when a lesson from the past finally clicks and you want to run and tell someone who bore witness to the old you, ‘i finally get it now.”
Last year, Tamako was featured on the Monako track “Hollow Moon.” In 2021, she released a collaboration with Courtney Barnett: a cover of Tim Hardin’s “Reason to Believe,” inspired by Karen Dalton’s version of the song. That same year, she joined Jamila Woods on Miloe’s song “Winona” and again joined Barnett on Sharon Van Etten’s “Don’t Do It.” A new version of the Vagabon song “Home Soon,” with full orchestra, was featured in the 2020 film Antebellum, and a previously unreleased track, “The Wild” also was featured in a soundtrack, for the film Turning.
