The dreamy synth number comes from her forthcoming self-titled album.

Giving us the latest taste of her upcoming new record, set for release next month, Lætitia Tamko - aka Vagabon - has shared ambient new number ‘Water Me Down’.

Talking about the song, Vagabon explains: “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.”
