'Notes from the Archive' traces Rogers’ evolution from an unknown singer-songwriter to a collegiate folk-pop sensation.
US indie-pop singer Maggie Rogers has announced the release of Notes from the Archive: Recordings 2011 – 2016, a collection of old songs and previously unavailable tracks.
The music Rogers wrote before entering the public eye when her original song 'Alaska' went viral in 2016 hasn't received the credit it deserved, hence why the folk star is retracing the steps of her evolution.
The album will include newly remastered versions of tracks from Rogers’ early albums, including Blood Ballet and The Echo, as well as six never-before-heard songs: 'Celadon & Gold', 'Together', 'Steady Now', 'One More Afternoon', '(Does It Feel Slow?)', and 'New Song'. The singer nabbed a Grammy nomination this year for her stunning album, Heard It In a Past Life.
Rogers has shared a self-narrated visual to introduce the 16-track record and revealed the inspiration behind the project.
“I started writing songs as a way to process and document my life,” she says in the clip.
“A few years later, music production became a way for me to hear those songs alive and in full form in the world. This record is about looking back on ten years of work.”
Notes from the Archive: Records 2011 – 2016 is scheduled to arrive on December 18th via Rogers' own record label, Debay Sounds.
