Fresh off her Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, Maggie Rogers dropped a surprise single for her fans, ‘Love You for a Long Time’.

Rogers shared her inspiration for the new track in a statement: “It’s a song about love in all its forms – romantic love, the love I feel for my friends, the love I feel for my band, and the love I’ve shared with all of you. I wanted it to sound like the last days of summer. I wanted it to sound as wild and alive as new love feels.”

Roger’s winsome vocals take on a twangy tone on this bright track, which sees her return to her folky, Americana roots that she first started out with.

“I saw your face and I knew it was a sign/And I still think about that moment all of the time,” she sings over the rootsy track.

The single follows the singer-songwriter’s major label debut, Heard It in a Past Life, that she released this past January on Capitol.

The album debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200 chart, a rare feat for a new artist. “At its core, Heard It In a Past Life is a collection of self-searching moments: miniature mental flashbulbs of realization from a young adult striving to adjust to the swiftly shifting world around her,” writes Rolling Stone.

Before her album debut, Rogers went viral thanks to a 2016 clip where she played her original song ‘Alaska’ to Pharrell Williams at a NYU music workshop and blew the producer away. Fast forward three years and she’s headlining her own North American tour and earning Grammy nominations, not bad for a 25-year-old during her first run.

“If I could write down all of the big bucket-list check marks, all the career goals kind of happened,” she told Rolling Stone in October.
