Acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer Maggie Rogers will release her Capitol Records debut album, ‘Heard It In A Past Life’, on January 18, 2019.
Her new single, ‘Light On’, is out now and available to stream. Written by Rogers, the song was produced by Greg Kurstin, Kid Harpoon and Rogers and premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
‘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.”

“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.”
