Maisie Peters Launches New Era With ‘Body Better’ & Touring Australia This February/ March
Following a momentous 2022 that saw her sell out headline shows across the globe, land a BRIT Breakthrough certification for her debut album (You Signed Up For This, 2021) and play to millions as support on Ed Sheeran’s UK/EU Mathematics stadium tour, Maisie Peters is back with her brand new single, Body Better – the first from her soon to be announced new album – out now via Gingerbread Man Records/Asylum.
Written by Maisie, alongside Ines Dunn (Griff, Mimi Webb) and producer Matias Téllez (girl in red, AURORA), Body Better brims with more candour and vulnerability than ever before, showcasing the evolution of Maisie’s acclaimed diary-style songwriting to serve as a fitting entry point to the new record.
“Body Better is one of the most honest songs I’ve ever released, and definitely the most personal”, Maisie shares. “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 Peters will head to Australia for the first time this February and March for seven headline shows, as well as opening for Ed Sheeran on his mammoth stadium tour. Final tickets to her previously sold-out headline shows have just been added HERE.
With 20,000 tickets sold across the UK and Europe last year, Maisie is now set to perform her biggest shows to date once she returns from Australia, including Eventim Apollo on 27th April (which sold out in just an hour), a headline slot at Liverpool’s Sound City on 30th April and a homecoming show at Brighton Dome as part of The Great Escape Festival on 12th May, where – alongside Arlo Parks – she’s confirmed as one of the two 2023 Spotlight Shows.
