It’s been some time since Maggie Rogers has released new music but look no further because the singer has just dropped a brand new song from her upcoming new album.
Serving as the lead single off of her sophomore album, Surrender, “That’s Where I Am” is a tasteful combination of acoustic and electronic sounds all while being immersed by such powerful and emotive vocals from Maggie herself.
The singer-songwriter wrote and produced the new song with Kid Harpoon, who she had previously worked with on her 2019 debut album, Heard It in a Past Life.
Sharing the meaning behind the new song, Rogers said it was one that she had been holding onto for some time now.
“That’s Where I Am” is a story I’d been carrying around for many years, the story of a love that had been with me and unfolding for a long time,” said Maggie.
And a lot of the events that appear on Surrender, Maggie said, take place in New York City.
“The city’s music and attitude was a big source of inspiration for the record,” said Maggie. “For all these reasons, there was only ever one place we could shoot the video.”
The music video for “That’s Where I Am” is a love letter to the singer’s adopted hometown of New York City, which was co-directed by Maggie Rogers, Michael Scanlon, and Warren Fu. As Maggie confidently strides her way throughout the city, bumping into a few notable New Yorkers, the video encapsulates all of the vibrant and diverse energy the city has to offer.
