Maisie Peters has covered the Green Day classic Basket Case for Australian radio station Triple J’s Like A Version, watch below.

“I wanted to do something slightly unexpected and Green Day were one of the first bands I discovered when I was 12. I loved that song, I loved 21 Guns [from 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown] and Wake Me Up When September Ends [from 2004’s American Idiot]. They were real pillars of my adolescence,” Peters explained. “I loved the spirit of all of those Green Day songs. I loved the energy and the fire.”

Peters is currently on tour across Australia supporting Ed Sheeran and preparing for her own headline UK and Europe dates. She’s also gearing up to release second album, The Good Witch, which is due on 16 June.

The singer-songwriter wrote about the album on its announcement, “This is my heart and soul, my blood on the page, the collection of stories that I’ve managed to capture in the past year. A true chronicle of my life in recent history, it is my own twisted version of a breakup album and it all draws upon the same couple of months’ worth of experiences and inspirations.”

“It ducks and weaves between the real and surreal, and centres my own universe, of which I am of course the keeper of the keys and the holder of the cards – The Good Witch, if you will. It goes from light to dark in the flip of a switch and I hope takes you on a journey where by the end, you feel like you’ve gotten lost in someone else’s planet for a bit.”
