Brooklyn based singer songwriter Allison Weiss has announced plans to release an acoustic/alternate version of her beloved and critically acclaimed album Say What You Mean.  The new release, Say What You Mean (Sideways Sessions) will be released on November 26th via No Sleep Records and can be pre-ordered now at https://store.nosleeprecords.com/product/6848.  Fans can pre-order the record now for just $5 or get it free with the purchase of Say What You Mean in any format.
Weiss is currently streaming the first new song from the record, One Way Love (Sideways Sessions Version), now at AltPress.com: http://bit.ly/17SbBq4
"The Sideways Sessions started out as a Kickstarter reward, but we got a little carried away," Weiss tells AltPress.com.  "My producer (Chris Kuffner) and I ended up making an entirely new version of Say What You Mean. It was pretty cool to get to rework the songs in such a different way. I took it as a chance to embrace my love for the alt-country/folk world."
Weiss' heartfelt tales of lost love and growing up have never felt more passionate than with her live and acoustic in the studio.  "One Way Love" is just a sample of the raw emotion that Weiss has stripped down and reimagined for a new version of her breakthrough album.
"The original version of "One Way Love" is this fun upbeat pop punk jam, and for Sideways Sessions we took it to a whole new place," Weiss adds.  "Same lyrics, totally different feeling. It's a lot darker and I love it. It's definitely one of my favorite tracks we did."
Weiss also announced today that she will hit the road for a week in January with Max Bemis before heading to the UK for a tour with Matt Pryor in February.
