PREMIERE: Sara Rachele Releases New Single “Let Me Make It Up To You (You’re Such A Sweet Thing)”

Keeping up with our series of premieres, we are joining forces with Sara Rachele for the release of her new single “Let Me Make It Up to You (You’re Such A Sweet Thing),” one of the defining tracks on the album, gallops like an Ennio Morricone score or eerie 50s ballad vibe, until it slips into a sock-hop slow jam, with such retrospective lyrics.

About the song, Rachele comments “Let Me Make It Up to You (You’re Such A Sweet Thing)” came out of a moment of contrition. This song is meant to be a conversation–a love letter of sorts. It’s an apology, and I wanted the music to reflect the prosody of the composition, and keep the simplicity of the idea at the forefront. 

We did the recording itself as a live band in Brooklyn, live to tape at a studio we like there. I produced this one, and worked from a demo I’d started writing at my studio in Atlanta, which I made with Waylon (of the Skintights). So, she helped me tighten the song up, and she’s one of the only people I work with as a writer on that level. I’m a little shy. Then at the studio in New York, we all had that demo, so we just reviewed it and went in and played the song as a band. I played acoustic on the track to lead the band in the vocal booth with the guys in the live room at Studio G.  

Binky really just has this vibe, and I knew that if we just let him do what he does, it’d grow up to being a real record. And not to mention, the rest of the players were so tasteful. I’m a young producer, but in Brooklyn, with a simple idea and those kinds of players, it goes a long way, and it was just a pleasure to let the song be set free. 

I try to be honest, and apologies aren’t always so easy. I hope the song and record captures a little bit of that push-and-pullsome of that “I’m sorry and could you forgive me?” But without the sentimentality, love is about loving even when things get hard. No one can promise not to make mistakes, and I’ve stumbled a lot the last couple of years. I know what its like to be unforgiven. This is a little song of hope, aiming at redemption. And if I can be redeemed, anyone can.
