Maggie Rogers shared a new single entitled “Horses.” The track is the latest preview off the singer-songwriter’s upcoming album, Surrender.

Rogers is set to deliver Surrender through Capitol Records on July 29. The follow-up to Rogers’ 2019 LP, Heard It In A Past Life, also features the previously released singles, “That’s Where I Am” and “Want Want.”

Rogers co-produced the 12-track Surrender with singer-songwriter and producer Kid Harpoon. The album was recorded in Rogers’ parents’ garage as well as at New York City’s Electric Lady Studios and at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England. As Clash Music reports, Rogers stated the following regarding “Horses”:

“There’s been only a few, rare times in my life when two songs have appeared in the same day. And only one time when three songs came at once. This was the case with ‘Horses’. I was at Real World Studios with my dearest collaborator, Kid Harpoon. On day one, I sat down at the piano and he sat down at the drums and ‘Overdrive’ came pouring out.

“I knew immediately it would be the opening track of the record. We started day two with ‘That’s Where I Am,’ caught ‘I’ve Got A Friend’ after lunch, and came back for ‘Horses’ after dinner and a glass or two of wine. Tom started playing guitar and immediately I started writing. I looked up to ask him what he thought and he simply said, ‘keep going.’ I wondered if maybe it was time to call it a night and he simply said, ‘keep going.’

“When I finished the words, I suggested we record in the morning and he said, ‘give it one take.’ That take is ‘Horses.’ It’s a song about letting go. About wanting to feel free in a time where I felt an overwhelming amount of numbness. Sometimes I’m singing to a loved one, sometimes a friend. Sometimes I think I’m singing to myself. And I love that I can’t always tell the difference.”

“Horses” came with an accompanying video co-directed by Rogers and Michael Scanlon, watch below:
