After a gorgeous television debut performance of “Alaska” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Maggie Rogers dropped her highly anticipated new EP Now That The Light Is Fading today! You can purchase/stream the EP now through multiple venues listed on her website here.
Maggie Rogers is off to a blazing start this year, selling out most of her tour, with announced performances at several festivals around the world including SXSW this March, and now with the release of this gorgeous new EP, we have a new set of songs to discover live. There is something extremely nostalgic and warming about Maggie Rogers’ voice. The storytelling lyrics that weave through each track on this EP connect on a deeper level, as if the EP was made and released by an old friend who truly understands you. One of my favorite tracks off Now That The Light Is Fading is the upbeat and mesmerizing “Better”. “Better” is one of those songs you find yourself dancing to without even releasing it, and like her other tracks, the vocals and lyrics are impossible not to sing along to.
The other song you might not recognize yet from the EP is “Color Song”. The hymn-remiscient minimalist tune features stunning vocal harmonies and nature sounds, like what you would imagine camping with Maggie Rogers would be like. We’ll start the fire and set up camp to hear those vocals all day!
The EP also includes previously released favorites “Alaska”, “On + Off” and “Dog Years”. Listen to each track below and finally get your copy of this gorgeous debut EP via Maggie Roger’s website here.
Maggie Rogers will be heading to Philly to play a sold out show at The Foundry on April 7th! For more tour dates and information, click here.
