Maggie Rogers Unveils “Don’t Forget Me” Album

From viral sensation to thoughtful artist, Maggie Rogers has journeyed through the whirlwind of fame with introspection and purpose. Her latest album, “Don’t Forget Me,” marks a milestone in her career, showcasing a mature and self-assured songwriter at the peak of her creativity.

Reflecting on her evolution from an NYU music student thrust into the limelight to a seasoned performer, Rogers has embraced her role as both artist and guide. Recognizing a misalignment between her training and the demands of fame, she sought refuge in Harvard Divinity School to better navigate the expectations placed upon her.

“Don’t Forget Me,” released as Rogers earns her postgraduate degree, is a testament to her growth. With producer Ian Fitchuk, she crafts a sound that blends elements of cosmic country, disco, and psychedelic rock. While reminiscent of Fitchuk’s past work, Rogers infuses her own influences, creating a nuanced sonic landscape that complements her introspective lyrics.

The album’s recording process, completed in a whirlwind five days, sets a lively pace reflected in its zippy, groovy rhythms. Rogers delves into themes of love, heartbreak, and self-discovery with a playful yet earnest approach. Songs like “Drunk” and “Never Going Home” capture moments of passion and escapism, while tracks like “The Kill” explore the complexities of doomed relationships.

As a vocalist, Rogers showcases her versatility, delivering emotive performances that range from delicate ballads to soaring anthems. In “I Still Do” and “All the Same,” she demonstrates a tender vulnerability reminiscent of folk traditions, while on the title track, she channels the powerhouse vocals of country divas with conviction.
