Watch Maggie Rogers Dance at a Karaoke Bar in ‘Want Want’ Video
Maggie Rogers has shared a new video for her single “Want Want”. Watch the clip below.
In the video, which was recorded in Koreatown in New York, Rogers dances while performing “Want Want” at a karaoke bar, slowly building up energy before being joined by her band and a crowd of onlookers.
The video was directed by Warren Fu who also collaborated with Rogers on “That’s Where I Am.”
“‘Want Want’ started in Maine during the pandemic in a small studio assembled above my parents’ garage,” Rogers wrote of the track. “I wrote and produced it with my old bandmate, Del Water Gap. It was really just for the fun of it all. The song found its final shape over the next year and a half, editing and re-editing it with Kid Harpoon until we found the perfect drum set to blow your teeth, the good growl of the guitar sound.
Rogers continued, “That roaring synth, it’s just a stock Prophet sound, but it always reminded me a bit of the intro to Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’. The right amount of bite that always beckons. The video is about sensuality. About the incarnation. About freedom. It was shot at one of my favorite karaoke bars. Sticky floors and bathrooms lit by fluorescent lamps. Everything is in its place.”
The track is the latest teaser for Rogers’ “Surrender” which will be released by Capitol/Polydor Records on July 29.
Rogers also shared her UK, Ireland and Germany tour dates. View ticket details here and the next dates below.

At the time of its announcement, a statement said the upcoming release “fully captures the frenetic intensity of the last two years of her life, bringing her bracing honesty to stories of anger, peace and self-salvation, transcendence through sex and freedom by letting go.”
