“That’s Where I Am” is the lead single from Surrender, Rogers’ second LP, due July 29. Heard It in a Past Life debuted at No. 1 on the Top Alternative Albums chart and No. 2, its peak, on the all-genre Billboard 200 in February 2019 and has earned 624,000 equivalent album units to date, according to Luminate. It also garnered her a Grammy Awards nomination for best new artist.

Another of the new set’s songs, “Want Want,” concurrently debuts at No. 35 on Alternative Airplay – marking Rogers’ first appearance on the chart – and pushes 48-44 on Rock & Alternative Airplay (845,000 impressions, up 8%).

“‘That’s Where I Am’ is a story I’d been carrying around for many years, the story of a love that had been with me and unfolding for a long time,” Rogers said in a statement upon the song’s release. “A lot of the events that Surrender chronicles take place in New York City [where the song’s video, which Rogers co-directed, was filmed]. The proximity and pleasure of just staring at strangers. The way a night could unfold. Events that interrupt your day instead of having to consciously and deliberately make each decision. I longed for someone to sweat on me. Spill their beer on my shoes. Be too tall for me to see at the concert. The city’s music and attitude was a big source of inspiration for the record.”
