The class is in session. By that, we mean the stuffing of blue-marker-in-the-byline-notes into minimalist school bags as Maisie Peters joins the Taylor Swift-inspired lyricism curriculum with the debut album You Signed Up For This. As well as Olivia Rodrigo, Phoebe Bridgers, and Conan Gray — while they’re all gold star students, it kinda also seems Peters’ had some extra tutoring through being signed under Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records. His guitar-slung mentorship slips into such honorable mentions on the record as “Elvis Song,” “Outdoor Pool,” and “Villian.”
