Kacey Musgraves releases a captivating emo-pop tune, entitled, “star-crossed”

Kacey Musgraves is a six-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Golden, Texas. Not too long ago, she released a captivating emo-pop tune, entitled, “star-crossed,” written by Musgraves, Daniel Tashian, and Ian Fitchuk.

“At the beginning of this year, I was like, ‘I want the chance to transform my trauma into something else. And I want to give myself that opportunity, even if it’s painful.’ 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 like 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. And, I mean, there are beautiful parts of that, too.” – Kacey Musgraves told Apple Music

‘star-crossed’ contains a post-relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Ashley Monroe, Maren Morris, and Miranda Lambert. The moody heartbreaking tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with a warm emo-pop vibration. Furthermore, “star-crossed” is the title track of Kacey Musgraves’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album, set to be released on September 10, 2021, via Interscope Records/UMG Nashville. Also, this is the first album of new material from Musgraves since she released her groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed album, “Golden Hour,” in 2018.

“We called all the angels to save us. Called them by name, but I guess they got lost.”

“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 home 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.” – lyrics
