Rachael Sage Shows You Another Side Of Her Music

The singer-songwriter offers lush new versions of the songs from The Other Side.

Rachael Sage plays it sweet and low on her intimate new acoustic album Another Side — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

A reimagined companion album to the award-winning folk-pop singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer’s critically acclaimed 2023 record The Other Side, Another Side is a stripped-down set places Sage’s intimate vocals front and center. The result? Lush versions of her most carefully crafted, exquisitely realized work yet. Here, the alt-folk singer-songwriter has re-conceived these songs to reveal their beating hearts and tender roots. With memorable Americana-infused hooks and folk-fuelled poeticism, Sage’s timeless writing reminds us what’s most important is always worth waiting for, via songs steeped in just the right amount of best-is-yet-to-come optimism.

Produced by Sage and recorded/mixed by Mikhail Pivovarov and Grammy winner Andy Zulla, Sage’s living room-style versions include vocal contributions from breakthrough folk artist Crys Matthews, Americana vocal duo Annalyse & Ryan, and Nashville singer-songwriters Amy Speace and Grace Pettis. Longtime collaborators Kelly Halloran (violin), Dave Eggar (cello), Trina Hamlin (harmonica) and percussionists Quinn (Tracy Chapman) and Katie Marie (Sophie B. Hawkins) lay the intricate foundation of the record.

To mark the release, Sage has also released an insightfully introspective new single Albatross Reimagined (ft. Crys Matthews). The song is a rallying cry for empathy amidst a world stage continually fraught with bigotry and violence. Sage and Matthews’ vocals merge seamlessly on this lush roots-rock anthem, reminding us the power of harmony just when we need it most.
