Kacey Musgraves details forthcoming album and companion film ‘Star-Crossed,’ shares title track

Calling all Kacey Musgraves fans, the queen of country pop has returned! Musgraves has announced her highly anticipated fifth album and companion film, Star-Crossed, out on September 10th. As part of the announcement, she’s shared the title track and a trailer for the companion film.

Star-Crossed marks the follow-up to 2018’s Golden Hour. She’ll be reuniting with the same co-producers, Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. Star-Crossed was inspired by her divorces from Ruston Kelly. Alongside the album, Kacey Musgraves will be releasing a 50-minute companion film of the same name. The film is set to debut on Paramount Plus.

Today’s preview, “Star-Crossed,” is a stark turn from the soft, loving sounds of Golden Hour. The brooding new tune is a breakup anthem, as Musgraves delivers lines like, “Let me set the scene/ Two lovers ripped right at the seams.”

Listen to “Star-Crossed” and check out the trailer for the companion film below.

In February, Musgraves explained that the album is a three-act narrative inspired by Shakespeare and a mushroom trip. In May, she also said that it features sonic references to Bill Withers, Daft Punk, Sade, the Eagles, and Weezer.

The forthcoming 50-minute film was directed by Bardia Zeinali and stars Kacey Musgraves herself. It features cameos from Eugene Levy, Princess Nokia, Meg Stalter, RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Symone, and Victoria Pedretti. It’s set for release on the same day as the album.
