Watch Maggie Rogers Throw Epic Forest Party In 'Alaska' Video
The emerging singer-songwriter shares the visual component for her standout debut single.
Maggie Rogers has quickly become a widely-recognized name following a public stamp of approval from Pharrell Williams. Her debut song "Alaska" went viral over the summer, and when Williams first heard it he said, "I'd be very curious to see what your visuals will looks like." Now, the infectious earworm's visual accompaniment has arrived and Rogers does not disappoint.
The video finds Rogers emerging from a field, wearing her now signature plain jeans and a hoodie. Midway through, as a cloud of smoke clears, a transformed Rogers appears in all white with pink eye shadow. She and her friends then dance in the woods while bathed in flashing lights and by song's end Rogers retreats back to the field she emerged from.
Check out the video for "Alaska" below.
The song first surfaced back in March when Williams dropped by The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts to host a masterclass for music students. Williams' reaction to the track, which was captured on video, went viral in a matter of days and launched Rogers into the spotlight.
While there is no official word on an upcoming album or second song, Rogers took to Twitter last week to thank fans for their patience. She posted two photos of a hand-written letter, in which she concluded by saying "I won't let you down."
