U.K. singer-songwriter Maisie Peters has debuted an acoustic video for her song “Stay Young,” premiering exclusively on Billboard Thursday (April 4).
In the clip, the 19-year-old folk-pop singer performs a stripped-down version of the track in a cozy studio setting, with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a keyboard.
“‘Stay Young’ is a song I wrote last summer, inspired by the song ‘America’ by Simon & Garfunkel,” Peters tells Billboard. “I vividly remember listening to it on the train and being amazed by how clever and beautiful it is, how much of a literal and emotional journey it takes you on. I got to my session and the first verse of ‘Stay Young’ just poured out in practically one sentence as my friend and producer Sam Romans played the bass riff. To me, it says everything I want to say to everyone I love in my life, and hope it does the same to everyone who listens.”
“Stay Young” is the rising teen’s first single since the release of her debut EP, Dressed Too Nice For a Jacket in 2018.
