While listening to her latest LP, Don’t Forget Me, Maggie Rogers wants you to slide on in, roll down the windows, feel the breeze on your face.

“I wanted to make an album that sounded like a Sunday afternoon,” Rogers says of Don’t Forget Me, which arrived, fully-formed at midnight. Clean face (with a touch of lipstick), good vibes, a bottle of your favorite.


“I wanted to make an album to belt at full volume alone in your car, a trusted friend who could ride shotgun and be there when you needed her.”

Don’t Forget Me dropped at midnight via Capitol Records, and is the followup to 2022’s Surrender, her second major label effort, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200; and 2019’s Heard It in a Past Life, an LP that peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and earned the singer, songwriter and producer a Grammy nomination for best new artist.

Rogers co-produced Don’t Forget Me with Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris) at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, and wrote eight of its 10 songs with him (the other two she penned alone). Shawn Everett (Brittany Howard, The War on Drugs) mixed the set, with Emily Lazar (Beck, Coldplay) returning to master the longplay.

The Maryland native will be taking a long drive around the country with trusted friends for her first-ever arena tour, entitled the Don’t Forget Me Tour Part II.

The Live Nation-produced outing will kick off on Oct. 9 at Moody Center in Austin, TX, includes stops at New York City’s Madison Square Garden (Oct. 19); and visits to Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Seattle and other cities; and wraps up on Nov. 2 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA. Ryan Beatty will join Rogers as the opening act on her fall tour dates.
