OUT MAY 20th.
New York, NY: Award-winning recording artist Rachael Sage premiered her newest song "Loreena" yesterday on Curve Magazine. The track is the second release off of her forthcoming full-length studio album, Choreographic, due May 20 (MPress/ILS/Caroline).

"I wrote 'Loreena' in a dream about someone whom I've never met...I literally woke up singing the chorus, and then went to the keyboard to work out the accompaniment...later I realized I was singing about a very complex , independent woman with qualities of several women I have loved, combined into a composite portrait.

For several days, I had the whole song written but only nonsense-syllables for the actual name of the subject; I tried singing many names and phrases, including "oh, Shana" and "oh, Anna" but ultimately I decided to use the name of one of my very favorite artists and influences, Loreena McKennitt. When I produced it in the studio I added accordion and fiddle, in honor of her Celtic style which inspired me so much early in my career." - Rachael Sage

Accompanied by fantastic backing musicians including members of Belinda Carlile, Tom Morello, Patti Smith and Rufus Wainwright's bands, "Loreena" is an uplifting, heartfelt love song, infused with folk-pop energy and a dash of haunting Celtic spirit.
