This Friday, Vagabon (the project of singer-songwriter Lætitia Tamko) will release her self-titled sophomore album. She's already offered two singles from the project, "Flood" and "Water Me Down," both evoking some of her dreamiest and most expansive sounds to date. Now, she's sharing one more ahead of the full project, a more intimate cut called "Every Woman" that she's dubbing "the thesis" of her album.

"'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," Tamko wrote in a press statement. "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."
