Maisie Peters has kicked off her “new era” with ‘Body Better’, the first single from her upcoming second album – check it out below.
Maisie Peters released her debut album ‘You Signed Up For This’ in 2021 while last year, the singer-songwriter shared a handful of standalone singles.
Now though, Peters has shared the first single from her upcoming (but currently unannounced) second album. “’Body Better’ is one of the most honest songs I’ve ever released, and definitely the most personal,” she explained.
“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.”

Sharing the track on Twitter, Peters said: “This is truly only the beginning and I can’t wait to exist in this era with you all.”
During a fan Q+A, Peters revealed ‘Body Better’ is one of three songs on the new album that she’s nicknamed “The Trauma Trio”.
“It’s definitely a good taster” of what’s to come with this new era, said Peters. “But the album is so much more sonically varied than anything I’ve done before.”
