Two years after Maggie Rogers became a viral phenomenon when Pharrell lost his mind to her song “Alaska,” she’s finally announced her debut album. Titled Heard It In a Past Life, the record drops Jan. 18, 2019 via Capitol. The album includes previously heard singles “Give a Little,” “On + Off,” “Fallingwater,” and “Alaska.” Today, she’s shared another single off the LP, “Light On,” recorded with pop producer Greg Kurstin (Foo Fighters, Beck).

“This song is a letter to my fans about the last two years of my life,” says Rogers in a press release. “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.”
