The album - out in January - is being previewed by new single ‘Light On’.

Maggie Rogers has announced details of her debut album! ’Heard It In A Past Life’ will come out on 18th January next year via Polydor, and is being previewed by new single ‘Light On’.

The song premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 this afternoon, and follows recent singles ‘Fallingwater’ and ‘Give A Little’ in previewing the long-awaited full-length.

“This song is a letter to my fans about the last two years of my life,” Maggie says of the new track. “There was so much change that happened so fast, I wasn’t always sure how to make all this stuff feel like me. I was really overwhelmed for a while, and scared too – my life became so public so fast and there were times I wasn’t sure that this was all for me. But I never had doubts about the music. And every night I got on stage and was reminded why I love doing this.

“This is the most vulnerable I’ve felt in a song and it’s me saying thank you for all the light my fans brought me when I couldn’t find it for myself. I love music more than anything else in the whole world and I always have. This song is me actively choosing this life – in my way and in my time. I couldn’t be more excited that ‘Light On’ is out in the world today.”
