You might’ve seen the video of Pharell brought to tears by a new track circulating recently. That track was Maggie Rogers “Alaska” and today we’ve got a mastered version of the track. “Alaska” is a unique balance between the sentimental, soft touches of folk and the lively spirit of electronic. Maggie Rogers masterfully rides the line between both here to create a truly gorgeous result. The Maryland-based artist shared the following about “Alaska”:
I made folk music my whole life, but after my freshman year of college, I kind of had writer’s block. I couldn’t figure out how to write a song. So when I did start writing music again in the middle of this year, the first place I picked up was the last place I stopped writing, that summer. Going to Alaska, processing all of the change that has happened to me since going to New York, and then reflecting on how I felt afterwards.
