NEWS: Maggie Rogers shares fantastic new anthem ‘Want Want’ & announces UK/EU Tour

Maggie Rogers has released her awesome new single ‘Want Want’ and its accompanying video –watch below.

A powerful and infectious celebration of the “irresistible pull of desire“, ushered in on punchy drums and her incredible soaring multi-layered vocals rising to a chorus that at times recalls Annie Lennox or Kate Bush. It’s lifted from Maggie’s new album, Surrender, released 29th July on Polydor. It follows 2019’s Heard It In A Past Life.

She teamed up with Kid Harpoon and Del Water Gap to produce the track, which was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England and Sid’s Palace in Scarborough, ME. The song was originally written in quarantine with Del Water Gap in Maine and brought to its full form with Kid Harpoon in NYC and Bath.

Filmed at a karaoke bar in NYC’s Koreatown, Rogers performs ‘Want Want’ with raw abandon in the official video.  The energy builds as the sinuous verses give way to the frenzied chorus and she’s joined by her band and a growing, grooving crowd. The clip was directed by Warren Fu who also collaborated with Rogers and director Michael Scanlon, on the visual for her previous single, ‘That’s Where I Am.’

‘Want Want’ is taken from Rogers’ new album, Surrender, released by Capitol/Polydor Records on 29th July.

Rogers has also announced details of a new UK and European headline tour for later this year, kicking off on 31st October 2022 in Leeds. The 17-date run includes a show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 10th November – Rogers’ biggest UK headline show to date, and her first since a sold-out show at London’s Brixton Academy back in February 2019.   Full tour details are listed below. Please visit Maggie’s tour dates page for presale details

In early 2020 – after multiple sold-out headline tours and major festival performances in support of 2019’s Heard It in a Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1, landed her a nomination for Best New Artist and went on to amass over one billion combined global streams – Rogers retreated to the coast of Maine. CChannellingthe ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender.
