Sammy Rae & The Friends – I Get It Now

Sammy Rae by Clay Singer

Today, Sammy Rae & The Friends have released a sweeping new track, “I Get It Now.”

“It’s a song about really and truly falling in love for the first time,” says Rae. “A song about all the things that suddenly make sense once you become someone who has been in love. Interestingly, it’s the first love song of the Sammy Rae & The Friends discography.”

In the last few months Sammy Rae has released “Thieves” and “Coming Home Song,” and together they mark the first two releases of new recorded music since she burst onto the scene with her two EPs The Good Life (2018) and Let’s Throw a Party (2021). Since those early releases, Sammy Rae & The Friends have become a juggernaut. With a live experience that fans liken to church…or communion, however you see it, it’s an exultation and a cathartic release like no other musical act can offer. In the few years since she started workshopping her live show at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, she’s grown to selling out 5000 cap venues from London to LA and continues to add to her fervent fanbase.

Sammy Rae & The Friends have announced a major North American tour taking place this fall. The dates will kick off on September 30th at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, PA and include several multi-night residencies including Showbox SoDo in Seattle, WA on October 11th and 12th, two hometown shows at Terminal 5 in New York City on November 8th and 9th, Academy of Music in Northampton, MA on November 12th and 13th and a return Roadrunner in Boston on November 15th and 16th. Drag Queen and environmental and LGBTQ activist Pattie Gonia will open several of the dates on the tour.
