Margaret Debay Rogers (born April 25, 1994) is an American singer-songwriter and record producer from Easton, Maryland. Her big break came when her song "Alaska" was played to Pharrell Williams during a master class at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. She was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2020.
Today, four-time Grammy-nominated, Multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Jewel shares her potent rendition of Maggie Rogers’ hit song “Alaska,” as the bonus track to her recently released new studio album Freewheelin’ Woman, via her own Words Matter Media. The music video features drone footage of Jewel in the picturesque setting of Alaska. Given Jewel’s background as an Alaskan native, her performance of the song comes with a depth and appreciation of her homeland.
It might not be Maggie Rogers’s first time at the Met Gala rodeo, but the Grammy-nominated musician—who is currently gearing up to release her second album, Surrender, in July—still gets the jitters when preparing to walk up those famous steps. “Oh my God, there’s really no way to describe it,” she says of returning to the gala. (Her first outing was in 2019.) “It feels like a caricature of a red carpet I’ve only seen in movies. Loud camera clicks and blinding flashes. Having done the carpet once before, I had a much better idea of what to expect, but anyone that tells you that feels in any way normal is absolutely insane.”

Last week, Maggie Rogers announced her sophomore album, Surrender, which was written after she took a step back from music and started studying at Harvard Divinity School. But she’s back now, with an album that’s due out in July that was co-produced by Rogers and Kid Harpoon and was recorded in three studios: Electric Lady in New York, Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Bath, and her parents’ garage. Today, we’re getting our first taste of the album with lead single “That’s Where I Am.” The NYC-set video features cameos from Hamilton Leithauser and David Byrne. Check it out below.
New York-based singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers is releasing a new album, Surrender, on July 29 via Capitol. Now she has shared its first single, “That’s Where I Am,” via a very New York City video that features cameos from David Byrne and Hamilton Leithauser and ends with her performing the song in front of the Empire State Building at night. Rogers co-directed the video with Michael Scanlon and Warren Fu. Watch it below.Rogers had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘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. For all these reasons, there was only ever one place we could shoot the video. I’ve always said that New York is the city that winks back. It’s a main character. It’s a friend, a lover, an enemy sometimes. In many ways, the music video is about that New York love story. And on those filming days, it felt like the city was on our side. We got our first taste of true New York spring. That feral downtown explosion when suddenly everyone’s smoking on the sidewalks in short sleeves and drinking gin and tonics. The appearance of a few classic New York characters—David Byrne, The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, and photographer Quil Lemons—made the daydream feel complete.”
Maggie Rogers had a huge debut in 2019 with her album Heard It In A Past Life, which established her as a force and peaked all the way up at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. That was over three years ago now, though, and Rogers hasn’t really released new music since then (save for her and Phoebe Bridgers’ 2020 cover of Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” and a collection of older recordings, Notes From The Archive: Recordings 2011 — 2016.)
