Maggie Rogers: “James”
It’s been two years since Maryland-native, New York-based singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers released her debut album The Echo. Now she’s ready to come back with her new album Blood Ballet later this year. So to reacquaint us with her sound and tease what she has coming, Rogers has released “James,” the first single from the set. With her smart lyrics and rustic banjo, Rogers sings a bittersweet song of lost love. She wishes James well, but you can tell she’d rather they be together again. The simple arrangement allows Rogers’s melancholic voice to shine through, pulling you along for her emotional ride.
You can download “James” right now on Bandcamp for a name-your-own price.
