Vagabon has shared another cut from her forthcoming new album, which is due out later this year.

‘Do Your Worst’ is the third preview of Lætitia Tamko’s new album ‘Sorry I Haven’t Called’ - due out 15th September via Nonesuch Records - and follows on from previous releases ‘Carpenter’ and album opener ‘Can I Talk My Shit?’. The track also sees Tamko team up with Rostam Batmanglij and Teo Halm (SZA, Rosalía, FKA Twigs) on production duties.

“I was nestled in the German countryside when Teo Halm, who co-produced this with me,” she explains, of the track, “and I were experimenting in my home studio late into the night, I was listening to a lot of club music and I set out to make an instrumental that drew from the music you’d hear at an underground club in Germany or the UK yet still lived in the Vagabon musical lexicon. A year later, when I returned to the U.S, I got Rostam involved and he had a great idea of adding a layer of live drums on top of the breakbeat from my Germany session.”
