A little over a week after announcing that her sophomore album was on the way, Maggie Rogers has shared its first single. Titled “That’s Where I Am,” the song was written by Rogers and co-produced with Kid Harpoon. The track was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City and at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England. This is her first new song in three years.
Rogers, who was once a SPIN intern, unveiled a teaser for the album with its announcement.
After wrapping the Heard It in a Past Life tour in October 2019, Rogers relocated from New York to the Maine coast and “cut herself off from the noise of the outside world,” according to a statement. This change of location allowed her to channel “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.”
