Spacey Kacey’s fourth studio album comes with a 50-minute companion film! The rebel county singer has been teasing fans for serval days with quotes from what we can assume are lyrics from her new music. But this week, she finally dropped what we have all been waiting for her album release date, Sept. 10, and a film titled Star-Crossed that will come out via Paramount+ at the same time. After sharing a few snippets of the companion film, Musgraves’s fans realized the newly divorced singer was channeling a Kill Bill feel and were immediately on board.
No Ad to show
The film looks to heavily feature the church that Quentin Tarantino used in his hit film Kill Bill. You know, the one where love scorned Bill sent his goons to kill the Bride/Beatrix. Musgraves also featured a pretty eclectic and impressive cast including Eugene Levy of Schitt’s Creek fame, The Haunting Of Hill House actress Victoria Pedretti, musician Princess Nokia among many others. The singer shared the exciting news with her fans via social media “Fall apart September 10 with 𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖗-𝖈𝖗𝖔𝖘𝖘𝖊𝖉: the album + film,” she wrote describing the long-awaited album and companion film as “A modern tragedy told in three acts.” The “Slow Burn” singer encouraged her fans to” pre-order now” and if they do, they get “to hear the title track.”
“We Wanted It To Feel Cinematic And Epic”
Director and part visionary of the film Bardia Zeinali who has worked with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and plenty of other musicians released a statement about Star-Crossed. “We wanted it to feel cinematic and epic without compromising the heart and the emotion. To feel fantastical and heightened and tell her story through the lens of art and fashion.” Musgraves released a trailer of the film and from the looks of it, Zeinali achieved that goal.
Musgraves recently went through a crazy romance that ended in divorce and fans believe that that trailer indicates that she will be addressing the mistakes she made and the red flags she didn’t see. The singer dons a sexy pair of heels as she plays a bride in a dramatic wedding gown walking towards the iconic church. Her voice hauntingly sings over the scene “and then the darkness came” as she makes her way to the church. The scene has changed from a sunny happy day to a dark, lonely night. After she is married the scenes transition from the wedding dress to a housewife in an almost cult-like setting. Musgraves’s character is seen indulging in pills, crying, and essentially having a complete breakdown.
“In Two Years, You’re Going To Be Divorced”
The singer recently opened up to Elle magazine about her unexpected divorce from Ruston Kelly after a short marriage. “If you would’ve told me the night of the Grammys, ‘Hey, in two years, you’re going to be divorced and have a whole ‘nother album written,’ I would have been like, ‘F— off. No. No way.’” Musgraves was just as shocked about her divorce as her fans were. However, it looks like recording this new album may have been therapeutic for her. She released the titles of the tracks featured on this album, something tells us that “What Doesn’t Kill Me”, “Breadwinner”, “Justified”, and “Good Wife” might be the stories Musgraves fans have been dying to hear.
