News & Reviews

  • Vagabon has teamed up with Courtney Barnett for a cover inspired by Karen Dalton's version of "Reason to Believe," which was originally written and recorded by Tim Hardin in 1965 and covered by a wide range of artists since. After discovering Dalton's version, "I became obsessed," says Vagabon's Lætitia Tamko, "and so a few days after discovering it, I was encouraged to record a cover of it in my garage." Barnett adds "I'm a huge fan of Vagabon and Karen Dalton so this was a dream. They both have a voice that absolutely knocks the wind out of me." Vagabon has announced a livestream on January 29; tickets are available now.

  • Vagabon has released a live performance video of her song "Water Me Down," from her 2019 self-titled album. It was filmed by Justin Carlson during the same session as her performance of the song for Rolling Stone's first Fridays for Unity event on October 16 to support the Future Now Fund and help get out the vote. You can watch the video here.

DescriptionExcerpt: 

This single includes two alternate versions of songs from Vagabon's critically praised 2019 self-titled album: "In A Bind (Strings Version)" and "Wits About You (Saxophone Version)." "When recording 'In a Bind' for the album," she says, "I struggled with what arrangement was best for the song. Originally, I thought it should include soaring strings and be very theatrical and dramatic ... I'm glad this string version gets to see the light of day."
