    English musician Maisie Peters has just released the first single from her soon-to-be-announced upcoming debut album, and it's a tribute to someone you might not expect. Her new single is called John Hughes Movie, and it captures the energy of the late director's films, like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and many, many more.

    The song shares similarities with Lorde's music, which is great for those waiting for a Lorde comeback. It feels like a song that would be perfect for the soundtrack of a coming-of-age film - which makes sense, given Hughes was one of the best at making films that explained the transition between being a teenager and adulthood.

    Speaking about the track, Maisie says it's about experiencing heartbreak. "I wrote John Hughes Movie when I was 17 about a house party that I had gone to. It's a really honest depiction of being a hopeless, melodramatic teenager, being awkard and drunk and getting your heart broken by people you don't even remember anymore.

    "John Hughes films encapsulate that foolish romantic energy of high school and everything that I, a small town English wannabe Molly Ringwald wanted to be, but was not." There's also a music video for the track coming very soon, which Maisie has been teasing. There's a bit of a surprise ending, and we can't wait to see what it is.
