Music-News.com is proud to host the exclusive world video premiere of Rachael Sage ‘Blue Sky Days’ video premiere by Rachel Sage.
‘Blue Sky Days’, Rachael Sage’s latest release from album Character, is a meditative ode to healing inside and out. Inspired in part by the imagery used in the popular meditation app, Headspace, ‘Blue Sky Days’ makes use of Sage’s characteristically poignant and heartfelt lyrical style to create a genuine, hopeful track which is brimming with gratitude.
‘Blue Sky Days’, like the rest of this album, was written during the tumultuous year in which Sage was diagnosed with, treated for and recovered from, uterine cancer. It sets the tone for the album as a whole, a wide-eyed look at the world anew, with a newfound reverence for music as a tool for healing. This coupled with the signature poetic lyricism, musical activism and emotive and astute songwriting which Sage is known for makes for a truly remarkable release.
The accompanying video features 10-year-old figure skater Morgan Sage (no relation) performing her tricks around a solitary Sage, who performs the song in the middle of the historical Evarts Rink in Katonah, NY. Rachael has always been a passionate, lifelong fan of figure-skating, and took it upon herself to art-direct this heart-warming and emotive video. The expansive movements on the ice directly contrast with the intimacy of a solo piano performance, making this a truly breathtaking video.
It is a perfect fit for Sage’s singular vision, which sees her summoning “inspiration in the wake of a physical and spiritual crisis… Of course, eventually, the clouds do clear.” Propelled by an ambitious string arrangement and Sage's signature arpeggiated piano riffs, Sage hopes the gratitude-centric ‘Blue Sky Days’ will serve as a source of hopeful uplift to anyone going through tough times.
A 6-time Independent Music Award winner, NYC-based Sage has firmly established herself as an innovative alt-pop-folk singer/songwriter, and recently wrapped-up a national tour opening for Howard Jones.
‘Blue Sky Days’ sees Rachael Sage embracing life and music with more passion than ever, exemplifying a triumph of spirit that is certain to inspire others to look toward the positives in their lives.
