  • Lyrics
  • The opening track of Maggie Rogers' debut EP Now That The Light is an updated version of a song that the Maryland native sang at summer camp. She explained to Nylon magazine:

    "It felt important to start with quiet. This is a song I grew up singing at summer camp in Maine, the same place where we shot the video for 'Dog Years.' So many of the colors described in the song were the same I was picturing when I visualized the record. I've sung this song so many times while hiking; it's something I've taught to friends too. It describes a transition in light and tone that is so effortless and beautiful in the natural world, but also so much what this EP marks for me: change."
