“Maggie’s sound is inspired by her connection with the outdoors, often drawing inspiration from the movement and rhythm of nature,”
Acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer Maggie Rogers will release her debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, on January 18, 2019. Her new single, “Light On,” is out today, and available to stream/download here. Written by Rogers, the song was produced by Greg Kurstin + Kid Harpoon + Rogers. The official video for “Light On” will premiere soon.
“This song is a letter to my fans about the last two years of my life,” says Rogers. “There was so much change that happened so fast, I wasn’t always sure how to make all this stuff feel like me. I was really overwhelmed for a while, and scared too – my life became so public so fast and there were times I wasn’t sure that this was all for me. But I never had doubts about the music. And every night I got on stage and was reminded why I love doing this. This is the most vulnerable I’ve felt in a song and its me saying thank you for all the light my fans brought me when I couldn’t find it for myself. I love music more than anything else in the whole world and I always have. This song is me actively choosing this life – in my way and in my time. I couldn’t be more excited that “Light On” is out in the world today.”
Heard It In A Past Life is now available for pre-order in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive five tracks: “Light On” plus the previously released “Give A Little,” “Alaska,” “On + Off” and “Fallingwater.” See below for the full track listing.
Heard It In A Past Life includes the song that introduced Rogers to the world, “Alaska,” which has accrued over 100 million global combined streams to date. The album also contains the follow-up singles “Fallingwater,” praised by NPR as “a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change” and “Give A Little,” which Pitchfork hailed as “cathartic pop song about empathy and unity.”
