Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) releases a new song, “Carpenter,” today. The single, co-produced by Tamko and Rostam, is her first newly created solo music since her 2019 critically acclaimed self-titled album. “‘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.’” Vagabon will join Weyes Blood on tour this spring.Wednesday,December 21,2022Hurray for the Riff Raff Releases New Version of 'LIFE ON EARTH' Title Track Featuring Preservation Hall Jazz Band
