    With her prominence over the last two years, it’s easy to forget Maggie Rogers has yet to release a full-length on a major label. Well, that’ll change on January 18th, 2019 when the folk pop singer-songwriter finally drops her first album on Capitol Records, Heard It in a Past Life.

    Fans are already plenty familiar with a handful of the songs on the 12-track release, including “Give A Little”, “On + Off”, “Fallingwater”, and her career maker “Alaska”. Also included is the new single “Light On”, a vulnerable yet muscular track that dances on sea-sawing synths. Speaking of the song in a press release, Rogers says,

    “This song is a letter to my fans about the last two years of my life. 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.”
