Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)
announces her sophomore album, All The Women In Me, due September 27 via Nonesuch Records. The follow up to her breakout debut, Infinite Worlds, All The Women In Me is an artistic leap for Tamko, who wrote and produced the entire album. Guitar-driven melodies are largely absent, replaced by hybridized analog and digital arrangements.
Of “Flood Hands,” on which she performs all of the instruments, Tamko says “‘Flood Hands’ is a track I originally produced and arranged for a well-known pop-duo to have on their album. Knowing I was writing this song for musicians I admire, allowed me this relief from my writer’s block. I used this assignment as a chance to flex my production muscles and write something I wouldn’t have written as a ‘Vagabon’ song a couple years ago. The result felt like a triumph for me in my progression as an artist and I just couldn’t stand to part with the song by the time I was finished.”
