With her highly-anticipated new album arriving at the end of the month, Maggie Rogers has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Horses' was produced by Kid Harpoon and Rogers, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Want Want' and 'That's Where I Am' in previewing her new LP 'Surrender', which is out on the 29th July via Polydor.
Speaking about the new offering, she said, “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.”
