We are ready to cry this fall, and we mean that in the best way possible! On September 10, star-crossed, the new album and film by Kacey Musgraves are set to arrive. But first, there’s ‘justified,’ the brand new single. We couldn’t think of any better way to kick off the fall season!
The Music Video
The music video for ‘justified,’ out now, was directed by Bardia Zeinali. Taken from star-crossed: the film, the music video takes us on a journey of self-reflection and healing, set entirely in the car as Musgraves drives through all of her emotions. It’s ethereal and calming while at the same time emotional and evocative. We’ve all been there, having a good cry in the car.
Earlier this week, the trailer for star-crossed: the film was released, and it will accompany the album on September 10 when it drops on Paramount+. The film is also airing on MTV. Kacey has worked with director Bardia Zeinali before, once on a 2019 Vogue shoot, and then again for her ‘Easy’ video shoot with Troye Sivan. So, it’s safe to say we absolutely love everything these two collaborate on and cannot wait to see what magic the star-crossed film will bring! Having a visual representation of an album makes everything even more visceral and vivid, and knowing Kacey’s work, star-crossed: the film is sure to be a work of art.
You can listen to ‘justified’ here! Pairing honest and clever lyrics with a beat you can bop to, along with her signature smooth, haunting vocals, ‘justified’ is a mellow break-up song that has us obsessed. We are all for a classic glitter-tinged break-up album! And with a title like star-crossed, evoking Romeo and Juliet, we just know it’s going to be a journey.
