With her highly-anticipated new album set to drop in just a few days, Vagabon has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Every Woman' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Flood' and 'Water Me Down' in previewing her sophomore self-titled LP, which is due to be released this Friday 18th October via Nonesuch Records.
Speaking about her new offering, she said, "That song poured out of me and showed itself as an anthem for myself and for all of the people who are marginalized by our society. 'Women' in this case isn't gendered, it's a placeholder for those who are not always welcome and not always protected. This song exists for all of us to see each other and find each other. The song is also a thank-you letter to the women who raised me, the women who look like me, the women who work in all of the genres of music that guided this album, 'the women who run with the wolves'."
And adding about the Lino Asana-directed video, "'Every Woman' is the thesis of my album so I wanted the visuals to represent transparency and to create a world for this thesis statement to live inside of. It's an ode to all those who feel different and who actively search and fight for space. When I was approached by Cameroonian filmmaker, Lino Asana, I was really, really excited to work with an artist from my country. There was this immediate understanding of one another. So many scenes of this video feel reminiscent of my early life in Cameroon, the chores I would do as a kid, the way we lived simply and humbly. The bubble displayed in this video represents an invitation to find yourself in this world."
