Check Out Maggie Rogers’ New Song ‘So Sick of Dreaming’

Indie-pop-folk artist Maggie Rogers has dropped “So Sick of Dreaming,” the second single off her upcoming album, Don’t Forget Me.

Produced alongside Ian Fitchuk, who also worked with Kacey Musgraves on her new album Deeper Well, this breezy indie folk track packs a punch with its upbeat vibe and introspective lyrics. In a post on Instagram, Rogers shared that the song captures her hope and optimism for life, clarifying that she’s actually “not sick of dreaming.”

“The truth is, I’m not sick of dreaming, and I hope I never will be,” Rogers writes. “To me, dreaming means existing in a world where the impossible is possible and where hope seeps into frame from the finger of the everyday. I’m an optimist, always have been, but the older I get, the more I’ve tried to spot the difference between optimism and naivety. It’s a powerful thing to believe in the best in people. I’m learning there’s also something essential to picking up what someone is putting down and holding them accountable for that. Maybe there’s a middle ground between constantly dreaming and just really loving the life you’re living in. Seeing the truth that’s right there in front of you, rather than dreaming or waiting for another reality to constantly appear.

“You can hear me come to a bit of that conclusion in the song,” she continues. “You think you’re so cool because everybody knows you, but what’s so good about that? There are a lot of ways to get to know someone. Sometimes it’s physical or through friends. Sometimes it’s solely through the gaze of the internet, or through an email. Real vulnerability takes bravery. That, to me, is something worth dreaming about.”
