RACHAEL SAGE: AWARD-WINNING SONGSTRESS REVEALS VINYL RELEASE DETAILS OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM HAUNTED BY YOU
Released November 18th, 2012
CREATIVE COLLABORATION WITH ARTIST OLIVER CARTWRIGHT ON LIMITED EDITION PACKAGE
“…her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter…Sage is the stitch between the great rock and pop traditions of the past and what those traditions have wrought in the hypermodern world of the present.” --- Billboard
"Inspired by…Elvis Costello, and backed by brilliant East Village friends of Rufus, Antony and such, Sage hits somewhere between the bed-sit and the cellarful of noise and it does you good."
--- MOJO (UK)
MPress Records label founder and singer-songwriter Rachael Sage announces gorgeous new limited edition vinyl package of her milestone 10th studio recording Haunted By You, on November 18, 2012. In celebration of this vinyl release, Sage haunted New York at a special Halloween show (10/31, City Winery).
Praised by iTunes as a “leap forward in both musical and emotional power,” the short-run vinyl edition of Haunted By You features exclusive artwork by Oliver Cartwright as well as graphic design by Sage. The eye-catching package features tracks mastered specifically for vinyl by Masterdisk, pressed on purple vinyl; a digital download of the full album is also included.
Cartwright, a British fan living in Korea, reached out to Sage on Facebook and sparked a creative collaboration that transformed an image into a multi-media piece of art. Sage, an artist by all definitions, regularly creates her own paintings and showcased this talent with exhibits in NYC's Lower East Side and Tribeca neighborhoods, earlier this year. Fusing together Sage's artful eye with Cartwright's unique process (a combination of ink drawings and digital manipulation), this visually stunning collectors edition package will also be numbered and autographed.

A landmark album in Sage's career, Haunted By You is a metaphoric tour de force of sophisticated pop, brimming with melodies. Self-produced by Sage and mixed by Grammy® Winner Kevin Killen and Grammy® Nominee John Shyloski, the album features guest performances by Dar Williams, Counting Crows member David Immergluck and actor/director Joshua Leonard.
