Vagabon Announces New Album, Shares Video for New Single ‘Can I Talk My Shit?’

    Vagabon, the project of Lætitia Tamko, has announced the follow-up to her 2019 self-titled album. It’s called Sorry I Haven’t Called, and it’s out September 15 via Nonesuch Records. Tamko co-produced the record with Rostam. It features the previously released single ‘Carpenter’, as well as a new track, ‘Can I Talk My Shit?’, which comes with a music video directed by Zac Dov Wiesel. Check it out below, and scroll down for the album’s cover art, tracklist, and Vagabon’s upcoming tour dates.

    This whole record is how I talk to my friends and how to talk to my lovers,” Tamko explained. “I think honesty and conversational songwriting can become poetry. There’s beauty in plainly speaking without metaphors and without flowery imagery.

    Sorry I Haven’t Called was made while Tamko was grappling with the loss of her best friend in 2021. “The things that I thought I cared about, I no longer cared about,” she said. “I had a realization that I need to make sure to feel everything that comes my way. There’s no linear path to grief, and everyone handles it differently, but uprooting my life just felt like exactly what I had to do. I needed a place to think and go through my discomfort privately but to also explore the newness and urgency I was feeling in my life.”

    “This record feels like what I’ve been working towards,” Tamko added. “When I think of this album, I think of playfulness. It’s completely euphoric. It’s because things were dark that this record is so full of life and energy. It’s a reaction to what I was experiencing at the time, not a document of it.”
