“Losers Weepers is a collection of songs written for anybody who feels like an underdog, whether it be in their relationships, careers, whatever,” says Babygirl. “Some of the songs, like ‘Easy’ or ‘Nevermind,’ are written about a break-up where one person was much more invested than the other. Other songs, like ‘Million Dollar Bed’ or ‘Today Just Isn’t My Day’ are more about navigating life with a gnawing sense of disappointment. We made an effort to offset some of the bummer lyrics by making the productions playful and sweet, almost hopeful. We always want to make it feel bittersweet.”
