Six-time Grammy-winning country/pop singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves announced a new album and film project, star-crossed, on Monday.

Her fourth studio album to date and the follow-up to her 2018 Album of the Year Grammy-winning Golden Hour, the LP will be released on Sept. 10 and is billed as “a modern day tragedy in three acts” — in this case, Musgraves’ experiences in “heartache and healing” and her divorce from country singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly. The two split in Sept. 2020.

As a preview of this especially personal musical project, Musgraves shared the title track:

As for the accompanying film component of star-crossed, this is from a news release:

star-crossed the film, takes the music from the studio to the screen with gorgeous visuals and a sense of heightened reality envisioned by Musgraves and Zeinali and shot by Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Matthew Libatique (A Star Is Born, Black Swan). “We wanted it to feel cinematic and epic without compromising the heart and the emotion,” Zeinali says, “to feel fantastical and heightened and tell her story through the lens of art and fashion.” The 50 -minute movie was filmed over a 10 day shoot in Los Angeles and features cameos from Emmy Award-winner Eugene Levy, Victoria Pedretti (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, You), singer-songwriter Princess Nokia, Symone (RuPaul’s Drag Race winner) and comedian Megan Stalter.
