Vagabon shares “Water Me Down,” the second track from her forthcoming self-titled sophomore album, due October 18 via Nonesuch Records.

Of the song, Tamko says “I wrote ‘Water Me Down’ in a stream of consciousness way in the few minutes following a frustrating phone call with someone. Coincidentally, I was at my friend Eric Litmann’s house who has a recording setup in his bedroom. I sat on his bed on a winter NYC night with a standard 58 mic up close to my face, and laid down the bulk of this song that night. We then went in and collaborated on the different textures… I tackled drums, arrangement, melodies and production. Eric played the synths and handled co-production. My intention with ‘Water Me Down’ was to create a playground in which to explore difficult feelings with confidence, triumph and foresight.”

The album title was changed from All The Women In Me to simply Vagabon after poet Nayyirah Waheed made it known she didn’t want her words to get quoted.

“Water Me Down” follows up her previously released single “Flood.” She announced the dates to her fall tour that includes headlining shows in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Europe in addition to supporting Angel Olsen on her headline tour.
