Today, Maggie Rogers has shared the new track “Love You For A Long Time,” a love song for her fans. It’s a joyous reflection from Rogers, honoring the astonishing journey she and her followers have shared since the release of her full-length Capitol Records debut, Heard It In A Past Life, which has sold more than 600,000 adjusted albums to date. The song celebrates this monumental chapter of Rogers’ career – which culminated with a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist earlier this week. Listen to “Love YOu For A Long Time” below:

Says Rogers, “I actually wrote most of ‘Love You For A Long Time’ the day before I wrote ‘Light On.’” Those last days of finishing Heard It In A Past Life were such vivid and vital creative moments for me. I was dreaming up a future – for my music, for my life – and the possibilities felt endless. For various reasons, but mostly scheduling, the song was left unfinished and unrecorded, but it always stuck with me and I’ve found its melody weaving in and out of my brain for the last year and a half. Since then, a lot has changed in my life, but one of the biggest changes has been my relationship with my band. I’ve been playing with most of my band for about three years now and over the course of touring this record we’ve become real adopted family. As we set out on our biggest tour yet this fall, I wanted to bring new work to our stage and give this song I love so much an arrangement that showcased the deeply personal and creative bonds I’ve formed with these special people in my life. So I wrote a bridge, finished the song, and recorded it in LA in August. I produced it with my trusted friend and collaborator Ricky Reed, with some arrangement help from the brilliant Nate Mercereau on bass and guitar. It’s a song about love in all its forms — romantic love, the love I feel for my friends, the love I feel for my band, and the love I’ve shared with all of you. I wanted it to sound like the last days of summer. I wanted it to sound as wild and alive as new love feels.”

Rogers recently wrapped her sold-out headline 2019 tour, which included two consecutive nights at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, DC’s The Anthem and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. After developing a lovingly cultish devotion to Rogers online, fans are turning out repeatedly for the live experience – and they’re bringing their friends along. Rogers has sold more than 150,000 concert tickets. Combined global streams of her songs have surpassed 650 million.
