Maisie Peters Premieres New Song “The List”
- Back in February, British singer-songwriter Maisie Peters contributed "Smile" to the soundtrack “Birds of Prey: The Album”.
She kept busy creating her new music and unveiled a new song “The List” on May 15th as the second single of 2020, following “Daydreams” released in March.
She co-wrote the song with British singer-songwriter Frances, who recently co-wrote “Hallucinate” with Dua Lipa, as well as "Ashes" and "Have You Now" with Meghan Trainor.
Maisie Peters said, “I wrote [“The List”] with my friend Frances in her flat last year in early November, and I remember we spent the whole day flitting about with different ideas, until right at the end of the day she played that piano part and the whole song suddenly came flooding out like it was already written. I think maybe it was.”
- She shared on social media, “It’s about liking yourself, even in moments when you really, really don’t like yourself. It’s also about coping mechanisms and my actual inability to look anyone in the eye, and my constant need to make jokes about anything even remotely sincere or sad! Haha! I do feel like since writing this song, I’ve made at least a subconscious choice to try and tick off some of my list every day, and that counts for something. We all have lists, but we are all much more than our lists, and should all remember that as often as we can.”
