Maggie Rogers announced a new album, Surrender, due out via Capitol Records on July 29. The singer-songwriter and producer previewed the new LP with an album trailer.

Surrender is the follow up to Rogers’ critically acclaimed 2019 debut album, Heard It In A Past Life. In 2020, following the touring in support of Heard It In A Past Life and coinciding with the onset of the pandemic, Rogers decamped to the coast of Maine for a reset.

“She spent most of her time reading and resting and walking along the jagged cliffs, compelled by the fierce and unforgiving nature of the North Atlantic Ocean,” press materials for the album noted. “As she immersed herself in deliberate stillness, Rogers eventually felt called to create music with the same sense of playful, open exploration and internal discovery that made her fall in love with writing and producing music back in high school. Channeling the ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender.”

Rogers recorded Surrender in three different locales: her parents’ garage, New York City’s Electric Lady Studios and Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England. Rogers co-produced the album with English singer-songwriter and producer Kid Harpoon.

“Over the course of 12 unfettered yet exactingly crafted tracks, Rogers fully captures the frenetic intensity of the last two years of her life, bringing her bracing honesty to stories of anger and peace and self-salvation, transcendence through sex and freedom through letting go,” as per the press release. “Allowing herself abundant space to examine and embody the most complex emotions, Rogers’ fierce, unflinching vulnerability ultimately alchemizes all that heightened feeling into her most joyful output yet: a body of work built for the sweaty immediacy of live performance, raw and revelatory and primed for shared abandon.”

To preview Surrender, Rogers shared an album trailer — which includes a snippet of new music — she co-directed with Michael Scanlon. Watch it below:
