Vagabon Exudes Charm On ‘Carpenter’

She's working towards her new album...

Vagabon returns with new song ‘Carpenter’.

The Cameroonian-American songwriter has two excellent albums to her name, with 2019’s self-titled LP winning enormous praise. Since then she’s contributed to the Antebellum soundtrack in 2020, while 2021 brought a neat collaboration with friend Courtney Barnett, covering Tim Hardin’s ‘Reason To Believe’.

Work on a new album is well under way, and Vagabon has decided to break cover with new song ‘Carpenter’. Produced by Vagabon alongside Tamko and Rostam – an all-star team up – the song sparkles with life, driven forwards by a vocal that betrays a quiet urgency.

Vagabon says…

“‘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.’”
