Watch Maggie Rogers’ New “That’s Where I Am” Video

Maggie Rogers is back! The singer-songwriter officially launched her sophomore album era by releasing “That’s Where I Am,” the infectious first single from her new album Surrender, out July 29th via Capitol Records.

Co-directed by Rogers, Michael Scanlon and Warren Fu (Daft Punk, Dua Lipa, The 1975) the new video pays homage to New York City which became Maggie’s new home when she attended NYU from 2012-2016, studying music engineering and production. The video also features cameos from prominent New Yorkers like David Byrne, photographer Quil Lemons and singer-songwriter Hamilton Leithauser and concludes with a dazzling rooftop performance amongst the city’s skyline.

In a statement Rogers said, “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.” 

Maggie Rogers captured the hearts of young millennials around the world when she released her debut album Heard It In A Past Life  in early 2019. The critically acclaimed, coming-of-age record used heartfelt lyrics and honest storytelling to convey the anxieties and uncertainly felt in the post-graduation, confusing, and ever-changing times of one’s early-twenties. If Surrender is anything like her magnificent debut, then fans of Maggie Rogers are in for yet another age-defining sonic experience that’ll stay with them forever. No pressure, Mags!
