Three long years after the release of her Album of the Year winner Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves has returned with vulnerable new album Star-Crossed, accompanied by a film from director Bardia Zeinali.
Described as a "a modern tragedy told in three acts," Star-Crossed sees Musgraves embracing an approach of "rebirth" in her work, even down to the details of how she will be presenting this new chapter in a live setting. "It’s a clean slate," she told Zane Lowe in a recently released, hour-long interview for Apple Music. "It’s the opportunity to thank the old energy and to appreciate it and know that you would not be where you are without all of the old that was there for you. But it’s also allowing for new energy to come in and new ideas and new personalities and just new possibilities."
Star-Crossed is Musgraves' fifth studio album, though it's her first work to be accompanied by a feature film. Star-Crossed: The Film — an Anonymous Content production in association with UMG Nashville, Sandbox Entertainment, and Golden Girl Productions — is now available exclusively on Paramount+.
The 15-track album is available on all major streaming platforms. Listen below and let us know what you think!
