Kacey Musgraves has made an exciting announcement, revealing that her fifth album, titled Deeper Well, is on its way. She has also shared the title track of the album, which has everything fans love about her music – relatable storytelling, acoustic guitars, warm vocals, and a modern pop sensibility while staying true to her country roots. Accompanying the song is a stunning music video that adds a cinematic touch to the experience. You can watch the music video below.
Fans won't have to wait long for more music, as the album is set to be released on Friday, March 15th, via Interscope/MCA Nashville. Musgraves recorded most of the album at the renowned Electric Lady Studios, with her longtime collaborators Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. The experience of working in the iconic studios was inspiring for Musgraves, as she was drawn to the rich musical history and vibrant energy of New York City's Greenwich Village. She explained, "I was seeking some different environmental energy, and Electric Lady has the best mojo. Great ghosts."
The empowering new single, "Deeper Well," resonates with those who have faced crossroads in their lives. Musgraves acknowledges the shifting winds and changing desires that come with personal growth. She said, "Sometimes you reach a crossroads. Winds change direction. What you once felt drawn to doesn't hold the same allure. You get blown off course but eventually find your footing and forage for new inspiration, new insight, and deeper love somewhere else."
Deeper Well explores Musgraves' observations of the world, delving into different concepts such as Saturn returns, the symbolism of cardinals representing a deceased friend, the ebb and flow of love, the passage of time, personal belongings being left behind, new love blossoming, the power of talismans, profound lessons learned, the significance of small details, finding solace in nature, and the captivating allure of New York City.
For those eager to get their hands on the album, pre-orders are now available. Musgraves had previously teased the release of her new album through a series of concept-related images and a Grammys commercial. This album follows her highly personal fourth album, star-crossed, which was released in September 2021 and explores her journey of heartache and healing after her divorce from fellow musician Ruston Kelly. Musgraves' fourth album (Album of the Year, Best Country Album), Golden Hour, had won her a Grammy Award in 2018.
Deeper Well is set to be an exciting addition to Musgraves' discography, and fans can't wait to experience the depth and beauty that her music always brings.
