Ahead of her upcoming sophomore album, Surrender, Maggie Rogers is back with yet another single, “Horses.”
And to no one’s surprise, this latest track is our newest song on repeat.
After starting off as a soft and dreamy ballad, Rogers takes us into a powerful and belted chorus as she sings, “I see horses running wild, I wish / I could feel like that for just a minute/ Would you come with me, or would you resist?”
In speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Rogers shared how “Horses” came to be,
“I’ve never had a day in my life where I have written two songs at once. And I certainly have never had a day where I’ve written three. Started out the day with “That’s Where I Am”, came back after lunch and wrote, “I’ve Got a Friend.” Came back after dinner and wrote “Horses. “And “Horses” is a one take vocal… And so is “I’ve Got a Friend,” but “Horses” specifically, I was so… I started writing the song and I was like, “Ugh, I don’t want to do it.” And Tom [Hull aka producer Kid Harpoon] was like, “Finish it.” And I was like, “No, I want to go to bed.” He was like, “Finish it.” And I finished it and he was like, “Okay, one vocal.” And I was like, ” Could you just do it in the morning?” He was just like, ” No do it.”
“Horses” — out now.
fuck i love this song.
