Maisie Peters teases upcoming second album with new track ‘Body Better’

Her new single is described as her “most personal” yet.

With her eagerly-awaited second album on the way, Maisie Peters is giving us the first taste of what to expect with new track ‘Body Better’. “’Body Better’ is one of the most honest songs I’ve ever released, and definitely the most personal”, Maisie explains. “I wrote it after a breakup and it deals with the ugly things you think to yourself in the aftermath, when you’re painstakingly going through everything small thing you did and were and wondering what you could have changed. It’s a song about insecurity and vulnerability, about giving a lot of yourself away to someone who decides they don’t want it anymore and knowing where to go from there.” Maisie released her debut album ‘You Signed Up For This’ in 2021. In our review of the record, we said, “‘You Signed Up For This’ is an album about young heartbreak and missed opportunities, smiling because you feel like you should. Big emotions, small glances, everything feeling life-defining. In a world where musicians can feel pressured to release albums year after year, Maisie took her time with this one, resulting in an album that could well be timeless.” Revisit our full review of ‘You Signed Up For This’ here, and check out ‘Body Better’ below.
