Today Maggie Rogers debuts the video for her new track Give A Little from her forthcoming debut album on Capitol Records.

I had so much fun directing this video alongside Alan Del Rio Ortiz,” says Rogers. “I was obsessed with 70s skate culture in high school and really just wanted to have a silly day recreating my favorite scenes from Lords of Dogtown and paying homage to my favorite Farrah Fawcett photos. Those early skate videos feel so raw and powerful, it was important to me to show that that energy could also be female. It was super special to have my two college pals, Rachel Matthews and Camila Mendes, along for the ride. We’ve been friends since the first week of our freshman year, but our schedules have gotten so beautifully and amazingly kind of crazy since we graduated a couple years ago. It was so much fun just to spend the day dancing and giggling with each other like the old days.

Produced by GRAMMY winning producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Foo Fighters) and Rogers, the upbeat, effervescent song can be streamed / downloaded HERE. Give A Little follows the acclaimed single Fallingwater, which NPR hailed as a powerful, mesmerizing depiction of Rogers’ transition over the last two years a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change.

Rogers will kick off a North American headline tour on October 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. The run will include shows at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA (October 18), The Vic Theatre in Chicago, IL (October 30) and Royale in Boston, MA (November 5). Mallrat will support on all dates- see all dates here. The outing marks Rogers’ first headline tour since her summer 2017 outing, which sold out in minutes.
Rogers will also headline two sold out shows at Koko in London (August 29 + 30) following her performances at the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds festival. She will also perform at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN (September 22 + 23) and co-headline the 2018 All Things Go Fall Classic, one of Washington, DC’s largest signature festivals. She and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger) curated for opening day, October 6.

Maggie Rogers is a producer, songwriter and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single Alaska and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. Alaska has since charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications including Rolling Stone, NYLON, SPIN, Billboard and more have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.

THE TONIGHT SHOW × MILEY WEEK

‘THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON’ ANNOUNCES OCT. 2-6 AS ‘MILEY WEEK’

Five Days of Special Performances and Comedy From Musical Superstar Miley Cyrus to Celebrate the Release of “Younger Now”

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” will host “Miley Week” Oct. 2-6, with music superstar and longtime friend of the show Miley Cyrus performing each night. This unprecedented weeklong celebration on “The Tonight Show” will kick off with a sit-down chat with Fallon on Monday, Oct. 2 and feature one-of-a-kind performances and sketches. Fans can also expect special guests and surprises all week.

The late-night audience is always in for a surprise when Cyrus is on “The Tonight Show.” She has appeared seven times over the past two years, and was the only guest who completed two episode takeovers. Cyrus and Fallon together have produced many fan-favorite moments, from her crashing as Hashtag the Panda, to the most recent of which saw them busking incognito at the Rockefeller Center subway station. 

Her new album, “Younger Now,” is set to be released Sept. 29. “Younger Now” is by no means a reinvention, but more a continuation. As the title-track expresses, “No one stays the same.” Cyrus has always been true to herself on her creative journey and has shared her life and experiences with fans through her artistry. Her prior albums were a direct reflection of her unapologetic self, and uncompromising vision of her music. And with “Younger Now,” Cyrus took the full creative reigns with an intention to share a piece of herself, unlike before. She wrote every lyric, co-wrote the music, and co-produced the album.

Cyrus will return as a coach on the 13th season of NBC’s hit music competition series “The Voice,” which premieres tonight, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
