    Watch: Vagabon Releases "Water Me Down" Video

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) has released a Maegan Houang–directed video for "Water Me Down," the latest from her self-titled sophomore album, due October 18 via Nonesuch Records. You can watch it below. Vagabon is available for pre-order now with an instant download of the track as well as the previously released track "Flood"; Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Tamko.

    "With the 'Water Me Down' video, I knew I wanted to make a visual with striking vignettes," says Tamko, "I wanted the colors to reflect those that illuminate my album cover, I worked with film again, as I have with all my videos so far, this time we went with 16mm. And I wanted to flex a muscle I haven't shared yet, dancing. Derek Nemecheck, my choreographer, and I worked together on movement. We never strayed from the dancing that felt natural in my body and it was so rewarding. Director Maegan Houang executed these ideas beautifully."

    "We worked with Derek Nemechek to choreograph movement that went from feeling rigid and structured to something more free form," says Houang. "Lighting, camera movement, costume design, color and set changes then served to accentuate the transformation Laetitia undergoes, finally allowing herself to be free and alone from people that hold her back."

    Vagabon has also announced an event at the Sonos Store at 101 Greene Street in Manhattan to take place on October 9 at 7:30 PM. The event will feature an advance listening of Vagabon's upcoming album and a discussion between Tamko and Pitchfork's executive editor, Matthew Schnipper. You can RSVP here.

    Vagabon is hitting the road this fall on a tour that includes headlining shows in New York, Los Angeles, London, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris and a run supporting Angel Olsen. See below for dates or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
