Touring the nation with the one and only Imelda May, New York City-based alt-folk-pop artist Rachael Sage performs her repertoire, including the newest addition, ‘Revelation Ground.’
With 14 studio albums under her belt, Rachael Sage has a more than immense body of work to show for it. Considering her two-year break since the release of ‘Character,’ Sage returns with a new pure force of optimism and hunger for life translated onto a new single, ‘Revelation Ground.’
Sage’s poetic lyricism beautifully camouflages societal everyday pain and life virtues. Surfacing after the two-year-long pandemic-induced trauma, ‘Revelation Ground’ delivers a certain level of lightness and a sense of rebirth, topped with acoustic instrumentation and an accompanying stop-motion music video.
Sage speaks on the inspiration behind ‘Revelation Ground’: “I thought about the lyrics to “Turn, Turn, Turn”, inspired of course by the Old Testament psalm: ‘A time to build up, a time to break down/A time to dance, a time to mourn/A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together…’ These ancient and powerful words were an encouragement for me to move gracefully through personal and collective loss. I hope that ‘Revelation Ground’ can likewise provide comfort to listeners weathering hardships, knowing that everything is seasonal and that hope always returns.”
