Maggie Rogers shares wistful new single ‘Horses’

Maggie Rogers is back with a stunning new ballad, “Horses.”

The track comes from her forthcoming album, Surrender, out July 29th. Today’s preview is a mournful, wistful ballad that revolves around intimate vocals and beautiful strings. “Horses” opens as a pretty soft, tender tune before bursting into an unbelievable chorus, as Rogers sings, “I see horses running wild, I wish/ I could feel like that for just a minute/ Would you come with me, or would you resist?”

“I’ve never had a day in my life where I have written two songs at once,” Rogers explains on Apple Music 1. “And I certainly have never had a day where I’ve written three. Started out the day with ‘That’s Where I Am,’ came back after lunch and wrote, ‘I’ve Got a Friend.’ Came back after dinner and wrote ‘Horses.’ And ‘Horses is a one take vocal… And so is ‘I’ve Got a Friend,’ but ‘Horses specifically, I was so… I started writing the song and was like ‘Ugh, I don’t want to do it.’ And Tom [Hull aka Kid Harpoon] was like, ‘Finish it.’ And I was like, ‘No, I want to go to bed.’ He was like, ‘Finish it.’ And I finished it and he was like, ‘Okay, one vocal.’ And I was like, ‘Could you just do it in the morning?’ He was just like, ‘No, do it.’ And then that’s it.”
