Vocalist Lizzy Plapinger, best known under her stage name as LPX will be accompanying Rogers during her non-festival tour dates this year. LPX recently released her studio album Junk of The Heart, which was supported by singles such as “Global Warming” and “Give Up The Ghost.”
Rogers wrapped up a massive 2019 tour, which was in support of her recent debut studio album Heard It In A Past Life. The performer recently revealed a new song “Love You For A Long Time” which held a more roots influence to her style of music.
Rogers gained prominence when her song “Alaska” was played to Pharrell Williams during a masterclass at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. She has explained this experience as “essential” to her career.
“First of all, the whole Pharrell and going viral thing is an essential part of my story,” she explained in an interview with the Independent. “It’s how most people know me. I’d be showing up in places like France and they’d be like, ‘Tell us about Pharrell’, but I realise that I haven’t really given people anything else to talk about yet. That’s why I’m so excited about this new record.”
