Grammy-winning country superstar Kacey Musgraves returns with star-crossed
Texas singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves' career soared to Grammy success with classic country sound infused with progressive themes and ideas. The 33-year-old is preparing to release star-crossed, her fourth studio album on Sept. 10, 2021. The album was written and recorded in the aftermath of her divorce.
Musgraves describes the new project as a "modern tragedy in three acts." The album's release will be accompanied with a nearly hour-long film streaming on Paramount Plus. The trailer for the film is posted above together with the album title single.
Musgraves said she was particularly drawn to the word "star-crossed." "I just really liked the definition," she told Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "And I kind of came up with my own sort of too, because all the definitions that are out there are pretty antiquated from the old Bill Shakespeare days. But it's to be fucked by love or luck. You're ill-fated, it's just not written in the stars. It is not for you. And everyone puts out their highlight reel, nobody's putting out their fuck-ups.
"And that's one of the reasons why it's daunting. But I'm excited to share ‘star-crossed' just because people know me to be a songwriter that writes about what I'm going through. And I think it would have been extremely awkward if I just acted this last chapter didn't happen for me. So I think you saw my highlight reel with Golden Hour and this is the other side of that."
The album will be pressed on LP in one of three surprise colors, which won't be revealed until the album's release date.
