Dallas native Kacey Musgraves is preparing to release her fourth album and her first original studio album since 2015's Pageant Material. The new album will be titled Golden Hour and goes on sale on March 30. In anticipation of the new album, Musgraves has released two new songs from the album with "Butterflies" and "Space Cowboy."
When it comes to the new songs, "Butterflies" is a familiar one for fans who attend Musgraves' concerts. She has performed an acoustic version of the song in concert for the last year. However, the version that she released from the Golden Hour album is a full band version.
While "Butterflies" is a romantic song for Musgraves, "Space Cowboy" is a lot more of a pop ballad, with Musgraves singing about a breakup and living the cowboy all the space he needs. The more pop-oriented country sound should play well in the Texans upcoming tour with former One Direction member Harry Styles.
Kacey Musgraves has not been completely absent since her 2015 hit album. She also released a holiday album in 2016 and spent time at Sheryl Crowe's home recording the new album, which she says is influenced by the Bee Gees and Sade.
Kacey Musgraves is currently on tour with Little Big Town as one of the opening acts. AXS has tickets to a handful of those shows, as well as her upcoming tour with Harry Styles, which kicks off in June (buy tickets here).
