Artist of the Month – April 2022

Maggie Rogers

GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer/songwriter/performer Maggie Rogers announced her new album, Surrender, which will be released by Capitol Records on July 29. Co-produced by Kid Harpoon and Rogers, Surrender is the follow-up to Heard It in a Past Life, her massively beloved 2019 album.

Over the course of 12 unfettered yet exactingly crafted tracks, Rogers fully captures 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. Allowing herself abundant space to examine and embody the most complex emotions, Rogers’ fierce, unflinching vulnerability ultimately alchemizes all that heightened feeling into her most joyful output yet: a body of work built for the sweaty immediacy of live performance, raw and revelatory and primed for shared abandon.

Rogers recorded Surrender in three distinct locations – her parents’ garage, Electric Lady Studios in New York City, and Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England. She gives a raw, poetic account of the internal journey that led her to Surrender in the striking album trailer, which she co-directed with Michael Scanlon.

Before she had even turned 21, Nija had written scores of Billboard Hot 100 hits. Now 23, the three-time GRAMMY Award-winning contributor has reached a new milestone: the release of her self-penned, self-produced debut single, “Ease My Mind (Come Over),” and the accompanying video via Capitol Records.

Shot in Los Angeles, the official video for “Ease My Mind (Come Over)” is a visually surreal exploration of inner space, traveling through Nija’s subconscious mind. Director Child (Big Sean, Janelle Monáe, H.E.R.) gives us a keyhole view into the vibrant worlds conjured by her imagination as she awaits the arrival of a lover.

Nija says, “This song is about those times when you’ve had a long day, maybe stressed out from work, and you just want to get your mind off things with that special person at the end of the day.”

Born in New Jersey and now based in Los Angeles, Nija has demonstrated a knack for translating her experiences into relatable, emotional songs for artists such as Beyoncé, Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Drake, H.E.R., Lady Gaga and Maroon 5. As she started working on her own music, she relished the freedom she had to fully express herself. Now Nija is writing songs that are more intensely personal and taking control of her music and narrative in a way she never has before.

“When I’m playing the songwriter role, I’m an actress. I’m telling the artist’s story,” she says. “But with my artistry, I don’t have to pull back and I don’t have to be confined or put in a box. It’s free rein to be me, to write from the heart.”
