“Going back to your roots is a pause to really understand who you are and where you’ve been, so that the path forward is enlightened. These songs have filled a void in my heart over the years and have been my steady companions,” shares Perris. “Far from being personal to me only, I wanted to show you how universal their emotion is through my country’s colorful sound palette. Stripped of any shield, “No Armor” is my most honest portrait so far.”

MAGGIE ROGERS ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM, SURRENDER, OUT JULY 29
In early 2020 – after multiple sold-out headline tours and major festival performances in support of Heard It in a Past Life – Rogers began the process of winding down and restoring her equilibrium, just as the world was thrown into upheaval. Longing to retreat to more remote surroundings, she relocated to the coast of Maine and completely cut herself off from the noise of the outside world. She spent most of her time reading and resting and walking along the jagged cliffs, compelled by the fierce and unforgiving nature of the North Atlantic Ocean. As she immersed herself in deliberate stillness, Rogers eventually felt called to create music with the same sense of playful, open exploration and internal discovery that made her fall in love with writing and producing music back in high school. Channeling the ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender.
