Kacey Musgraves Teases New Music on Her Birthday

    Celebrating her 33rd birthday, Kacey Musgraves took to social media yesterday (August 21) to preview some new music. The singer-songwriter shared a snippet of a new song followed by several Instagram posts revealing the next line in a set of lyrics for what could be the title track of her upcoming album. Combined, her posts read:

    Let me set the scene…
    Two lovers ripped right at the seams
    They woke up from the perfect dream
    And then the darkness came.
    I signed the papers yesterday
    You came and took your things away
    Moved out of the house we made
    …And gave you back your name
    What have we done?
    Did we fly too high?
    Just to get burned by the sun?
    No one’s to blame
    ‘Cause we called all the angels to save us
    Called them by name
    But I guess they got lost…

    As Stereogum points out, the song Musgraves teased could be ‘Star-Crossed’, a Romeo and Juliet-inspired track that may feature Carlos Santana. In an interview with The Crack, Musgraves described ‘Star-Crossed’ as “a pared back, Latin-inflected ballad about resigning from a relationship and accepting fate without bitterness” that “swells into a pattern of guttural electric guitar, spectral strings and a chorus of voices.” Musgraves also joined TikTok and shared a snippet of another song, which you can check out below.

    Kacey Musgraves’ last album was 2018’s Golden Hour.
