Collins-Soper (CS) evolution kernel is critical to relate transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions (TMDPDFs) at different scales. When the parton transverse momentum is small, $q_{T}\sim\Lambda_{\mathrm{QCD}}$, the CS kernel is non-perturbative; the determination of the CS kernel in the non-perturbative regime can only be done through experiment or first-principles calculations. Here, preliminary results are presented for a new calculation of the non-perturbative CS kernel using lattice QCD and Large-Momentum Effective Theory. This work improves the control over and reduces the systematic uncertainties compared to previous lattice QCD calculations, and is the first computation at close-to-physical valence and sea pion masses $m_{\pi} \approx 140\textrm{ MeV}$.
