American Songwriter Premieres Title Track "New Destination" From Rachael Sage's Upcoming EP

American Songwriter has premiered Rachael Sage's brand-new single, the title track from her forthcoming EP "New Destination". The track drew inspiration from Carole King’s Broadway musical “Beautiful.” After Sage left the show with an “I Feel The Earth Move” feeling, she was determined to write an upbeat groove-tune on the piano with a classic, pop hook. It was recorded with producer Barb Morrison (Deborah Harry, Rufus Wainwright). The song features Rachael on keys and vocals, as well as cellist Ward Williams (Sara Bareilles), drummer Andy Mac, and Barb Morrison on guitar and bass.

Check out producer Barb Morrison's blog about the studio session HERE.
