Kacey Musgraves has announced the release of her new album Star-Crossed and shared its title track. 

The upcoming album - Kacey's fourth - will drop on September 10. It acts as the follow-up to 2018's acclaimed Golden Hour, which won the prestigious Grammy for Album of the Year and peaked in the UK's Official Albums Chart at Number 6, and one of the best-selling country albums in the UK of that year.

Taken as the first single from the album of the same name, star-crossed contains lush, Latin-inspired guitars and Kacey mournfully introduces the theme of the album, which will function as a three-act tragedy, in the style of classic Greek theatre and Shakespeare.

Written and recorded within three weeks, Star-Crossed will also be accompanied by a film, directed by Barbia Zeinali and co-written with the director and Kacey herself.
