On June 15, we will release the new song "Can I Talk My Shit?," by Vagabon, the moniker of Lśtitia Tamko. We will also announces her new album, Sorry I Havenít Called, which is out September 15th via Nonesuch Records, and a fall tour that includes a headline run in the US, and EU dates with Arlo Parks and Weyes Blood. The album, co-produced by Tamko and Rostam (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Clairo), finds Tamko reinventing herself once again and features the most playful and adventurous music of her career.
ďI didn't feel like being introspective,Ē says Laetitia Tamko of her new album Sorry I Havenít Called. ďI just wanted to have fun.Ē Following her intimate 2017 debut Infinite Worlds, the New York artist favored expansive and evocative electronic textures in her breakthrough 2019 self-titled follow-up. But her latest LP feels like a wholly new era for Tamko, one thatís transformational and uncompromising. Across 12 vibrant tracks she wrote and produced primarily in Germany, she channels dance music and effervescent pop through her own confident sensibilities. These conservational songs are alive and unselfconscious, a document of an artist fully embracing her vision and reclaiming her joy.†
Tamkoís lyrics on Sorry I Havenít Called are uniformly playful and inviting. The first words she sings on the album are, ďCan I talk my shit? / I got way too high for this.Ē Itís a statement of purpose for the rest of the album that this is an unapologetic artist. ďThis whole record is how I talk to my friends and how to talk to my lovers,Ē says Tamko. ďI think honesty and conversational songwriting can become poetry. Thereís beauty in plainly speaking without metaphors and without flowery imagery.Ē
