Rachael Sage Releases Optimistic Single, ‘The Other Side’

NEW YORK – May 31, 2023 – ( Newswire.com ) Alt-folk-pop singer-songwriter Rachael Sage has released the title track “The Other Side” from her forthcoming album (out July 21, 2023 via MPress Records). Featuring Jack Petruzzelli (Patti Smith) on guitar and Russ Johnson (Elvis Costello) on trumpet, Sage’s timeless songwriting reminds us that what’s most important – in relationships, dreams or our quest for freedom in whatever form – is always worth waiting for. The single premiered in Music-News and The Country Note.

Co-produced by Rachael with Grammy® winner Andy Zulla and longtime engineer Mikhail Pivovarov, “The Other Side” is resplendent with an uplifting horn section, soulful organ, spirited Elton-esque piano, and rapid-fire poeticism. Steeped in hope with just the right amount of best-is-yet-to-come optimism, the song is as instantly hummable as it is lyrically poignant. Sage explains, “My hope is that this song encourages people to slow down just long enough to relish where they are right now and not to take anything for granted, including our innate human ability to reimagine the future we actually want, even if it seems elusive.”

The phrase “the other side” is deeply evocative, conjuring up images of political strife, opposing perspectives, military battles, and the afterlife But it also brings to mind memories of flipping over vinyl or cassette album sides, reminding us of our inherent need for polarities in everything from pop music to inhaling/exhaling. Sage shares, “‘The Other Side’ is my favorite track on this record and the one I think that exemplifies where I am right now in my life and as an artist. The lyric is very patient, and approaches the idea of love as something very distinct from romance…it’s more about connecting with both yourself- your inner sense of freedom and authenticity – and your loved one (s), without judgment and with a sense of unconditional acceptance.”

“The Other Side” and “Whistle Blow” are available on all streaming platforms.
