Today is a huge day for me. Not only did Charlie Mauve release literally my favourite song she has ever recorded… but I am proud to announce that the track artwork features none other than BABY PAIGE.

Charlie Mauve - I Always Lose My Lighter track artwork

There she is, in all her glory!! I could sit here and tell you all about how this song has been on repeat since midnight. How it makes me want to kick over a trash can and set it on fire. How this song makes me excited to see Charlie Mauve with her name in lights.

But instead, I thought I’d tell you the origin story of this song.

One night, Charlie & I were on FaceTime (as we do when she returns home from touring). She kept running off to grab snacks, glasses of water, go smoke on the roof outside her bedroom window. Eventually she came back and couldn’t find her lighter.

She started yelling about how she always loses them. Everyone on tour makes fun of her for never having her lighter/stealing everyone else’s. I told her “you should write a song called ‘I Always Lose My Lighter’, it sounds fun”. And bingo bango, here we are!

I genuinely do love this song, but I don’t need to tell you that. You already know because I am obnoxious in my support for Charlie. AND you’ve got the link to the song above! So in the next like… 5 minutes, you’re going to be loving it too.

If you do enjoy it, make sure you follow Charlie on Spotify, I know I say this a lot but it REALLY helps developing artists to get noticed for playlists if their followers are growing. So just clicking that one button can create a huge butterfly effect. Plus, she’s got so many insane tunes on the way… you don’t want to miss out.
