Kacey Musgraves album news has been slow coming but we finally have some more details about the Golden Hour follow-up.
In a new interview with Elle, she has revealed some details about the album which is slated for a late summer/early fall release (that's late winter/early spring for Australians).
She wrote 40 songs for the album but she has whittled it down to 15 for the final version which is split into 3-parts like a Greek tragedy.
The album was inspired in part by tragedies. “The word tragedy just popped into my mind," she says.
"And I was like, ‘Whoa, what if the album was formulated like a modern Shakespearean or Greek tragedy?’”
As for the sonic influences on the album, there is a wide range of artists listed. Bill Withers, Daft Punk, Sade, the Eagles, and Weezer are all listed which is quite an array.
Her previous album Golden Hour was a breakthrough, taking home the Grammy for Album Of The Year and introducing her to a community outside of country music.
Since then, she's been relatively quiet on the release front bar jumping on Troye Sivan's Easy last year.
