Charlie Hickey signs to Phoebe Bridgers' label + collaborates with MUNA.

Following the release of his debut 'Count The Stairs' EP earlier this year, Charlie Hickey has today announced his signing to Phoebe Bridgers' label, Saddest Factory Records ("Being able to sign Charlie is one of the reasons I started a label," says Bridgers), and is celebrating the news with a reimagined version of 'Seeing Things' featuring new labelmates, MUNA.

About the collaboration, MUNA say: "We love Charlie and are so happy we had the chance to put our little spin on ‘Seeing Things. We met Charlie years ago after he covered our song ‘Taken’. Katie and him connected over having a lot of the same neuroses (lol) and his writing really spoke to all of us - especially this song. We spent some time with the track and then had a fun day at Marshall’s studio recording these vocals together. We were trying to channel Postal Service energy...taking these heartbreaking lyrics and just putting a really uptempo beat behind it that you can dance to under an overpass."

And Hickey adds: "MUNA is my favourite band. Their songs are like a best friend who you can laugh with, dance with, cry with and do everything with. Listening to them makes me feel like the world is beautiful and like I’m not alone. I’ve been a super fan since way before I had ever known them and to hear them interpret this song was one of the coolest and most surreal feelings ever. They put so much love and care into it and truly expanded on what the song means to me."
