Artist: Maggie Rogers
Song: That’s Where I Am
You’re going to love this raw and joyous adventure of a song from Maggie Rogers’ upcoming album, Surrender, out July 29! The Grammy Award-nominated producer/songwriter explains: “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. A lot of the events that Surrender chronicles take place in New York City. In the stark solitude and distance of covid, it was the backdrop for all my claustrophobic fantasies. The proximity and pleasure of just staring at strangers. The way a night could unfold. Events that interrupt your day instead of having to consciously and deliberately make each decision. I longed for someone to sweat on me. Spill their beer on my shoes. Be too tall for me to see at the concert. The city’s music and attitude was a big source of inspiration for the record.”
