Emily Reo shares “Charlie,” from the upcoming The Le Sigh Vol. III compilation

Today, Emily Reo has shared a demo version of “Charlie,” a song from her upcoming album that is featured on the upcoming The Le Sigh Vol. III compilation.  The tape is available for pre-order now and due out 8/4 on Father/Daughter Records. Listen here

Of the song, Reo says: “Charlie is my kitten who died last summer. He was diagnosed suddenly with a rare terminal illness called FIP, and I wrote this song during his last week alive with him sitting on a chair next to me. I tried to express the universal feeling of loss, whether it be a friend, family member or pet, but I also tried to emphasize the ways in which our loved ones never leave us. After Charlie died, my partner Jack and I came up with a code to feel connected to him. If it was cloudy we decided he was feeling cozy and taking a nap, If it was clear or sunny we’d say he was awake and happy. Thunder = hungry, rain = drooling (of course). I started calling him my baby blue because that’s the sky when I imagine he is feeling his best. Jack and I co-produced this song, I did the mixing and it was mastered by Andrew Sardinha. My friend and bandmate Felix pointed out that the only thing I would write a love song about is a cat, so here I present to you — my ‘first love song’!”
