In 2022, Rogers released her follow up album, Surrender, to widespread acclaim, with Rolling Stone hailing her as a “pop music prodigy…an artist who’s in it for the long haul” and Pitchfork noting, “she sounds renewed, submitting to the pull of her heart without apology.” She embarked on two sold-out headline tours across Europe and North America, performing at legendary venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, Forest Hills Stadium in NYC and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
