Kacey Musgraves has announced her new album Star-Crossed. The follow-up to 2018’s Golden Hour is out September 10 (via Interscope Records and UMG Nashville). Musgraves produced the album-opening title track with Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, the writing/production team on Golden Hour.

Musgraves will release a 50-minute Star-Crossed film on Paramount+ on September 10. The film is directed by Bardia Zeinali and stars Musgraves, with cameos from Eugene Levy, Princess Nokia, and others. “We wanted it to feel cinematic and epic without compromising the heart and the emotion,” Zeinali said in a statement, “to feel fantastical and heightened and tell her story through the lens of art and fashion.” Watch a trailer below.

According to a press release, Musgraves recorded Star-Crossed in Nashville earlier this year in just under three weeks. The album is described as “a modern-day tragedy in three acts” that “tells an extremely personal journey of heartache and healing.”

After winning the Album of the Year Grammy for Golden Hour, Musgraves contributed a new song called “All Is Found” for the Frozen 2 soundtrack and emceed her own Christmas special for Amazon. Last year, she put a new spin on Golden Hour’s “Oh, What a World” for Earth Day.
