Kacey Musgraves announces new album, ‘Deeper Well,’ due out March 15, 2024

KACEY MUSGRAVES IS THE ONLY ARTIST TO WIN A GRAMMY AWARD IN THE TOP FOUR COUNTRY MUSIC CATEGORIES

NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “DEEPER WELL” OUT NOW

Seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves returns with her fifth studio album Deeper Well, out March 15th via Interscope/MCA Nashville, pre order the album HERE. Musgraves co-produced Deeper Well with longtime collaborators Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk.

Inspired by the energy of New York City’s Greenwich Village and its rich musical history, Musgraves recorded a good portion of the new album at the legendary Electric Lady Studios. “I was seeking some different environmental energy, and Electric Lady has the best mojo. Great ghosts,” noted Musgraves. With her keen observations of the world and discerning eye for the subtle nuances of life, Musgraves’ lyrics serve as a lens focusing on moments of life that often go unnoticed, turning them into timeless songs that strike a chord deep within listeners. Saturn returns, cardinals embody a dead friend, love is given and taken, streets rush by, belongings are packed and old chapters deserted, new love blooms, jade bracelets serve as talismans, deep lessons emerge, small details define everything, the woods are a refuge, and New York City serves as the same gleaming beacon as Oz. While most of the 14 tracks are penned by Musgraves with Fitchuk and Tashian, Kacey is also reunited with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne for the beautifully contemplative track “The Architect” (see full track listing below).

The title track and first single, “Deeper Well,” is out now, with a companion video directed by Hannah Lux Davis (Kacey Musgraves, Ariana Grande, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj). Listen to the single HERE and watch the music video HERE. On the bright, almost folky title track, Kacey surveys her life and priorities. Recognizing what feeds and drains her and examining what’s left behind on the way to empowerment.

“Sometimes you reach a crossroads. Winds change direction. What you once felt drawn to doesn’t hold the same allure,” Kacey went on to say, “you get blown off course but eventually find your footing and forage for new inspiration, new insight and deeper love somewhere else.” Check out the title track, “Deeper Well,” HERE, and check out the video HERE.

Deeper Well is the follow-up to Musgraves’ 2021 album star-crossed, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Sales chart and earned wide critical praise. star-crossed is the follow-up to Musgraves’ groundbreaking 2018 album Golden Hour, which earned Kacey her third #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart and distinguished her as only the third artist ever to take home Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards, Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards. In 2023, Musgraves achieved her first #1 entry on the Hot 100 chart for “I Remember Everything,” a duet with Zach Bryan. “I Remember Everything” is the first country music duet in 40 years since Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers’ “Islands in the Stream” (1983) to reach this feat. “I Remember Everything” just won the Grammy Award for Best Country Song by a Duo or Group at the 66th annual ceremony held earlier this week.

This latest win makes Musgraves the only artist in history to receive a Grammy Award for Best Country Album, Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance, and Best Country Duo or Group Performance.
