Maggie Rogers has announced details of her new single, “That’s Where I Am,” which will arrive this week.
The track will be the US pop star’s first piece of new material since her 2019 standalone single “Love You For A Long Time.” It will also be the first track to be taken from her upcoming second album Surrender.
“That’s Where I Am” will be released on April 8. It was co-written and co-produced with Kid Harpoon – who Rogers worked with on her 2019 debut album Heard It In A Past Life. The single was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, UK, and at the iconic Electric Lady Studios in New York.
Rogers shared a poster for the track on her social media accounts that also revealed a video is forthcoming and was co-directed by the artist, Warren Fu and Michael Scanlon.
Surrender will arrive on June 29 via Capitol Records. Announcing it last week, its creator shared a trailer for the album, which featured her delivering a poetic account of the internal journey that led her to Surrender.
“When I’m angry or in love, I feel it in my teeth,” Rogers narrates, “Strange harmonic buzzing. Cuts through my hands. My jaw. My breast bone. For a long time, I fought it. Resisted. Held up my fists. Tried to hold the current. Foolish. I found peace in distortion. A chaos I could control. Turned the drums up real loud hoping they could shock me back in. Break the numbness. Let the bright lights drag me out.
“Do you fear what’s underneath?” she continues, “Here’s all I have. It’s yours to take. Love. Hate. Anger. Feral joy. This is the story of what happened when I finally gave in.”
