Sarah Jarosz has shared “Maggie” from her forthcoming album World On The Ground, and the last preview of the album before its June 5th release.
Inspired by Sarah’s recent return to her Texas hometown of Wimberley for her ten-year high school reunion, “Maggie” explores a conversation she had with an old friend that night, who confessed that despite feeling stuck in Wimberley, she just couldn’t seem to find a way out. Slow-burning and soul-stirring, “Maggie” conveys a profound message of empathy and courage.
Sarah is also the latest contributor to NPR Music’s Our Daily Breather series, where artists discuss what’s helping them get through these days of isolation. You can hear the show HERE.
“Maggie” is the third advance track from the upcoming album World On The Ground, produced by multi-time GRAMMY winner John Leventhal (Rosanne Cash, Elvis Costello).
