Kacey Musgraves celebrated her birthday this year by firing up her fans with a series of teasers on her new album.
Of course, she recently revealed that she was about to “burst the fucking bubble” with her upcoming “divorce” album. In an interview she confessed that this album was heavy, a modern-day tragedy… a much different tune than what many fans fell in love with on Golder Hour.
“They see me as this starry-eyed, rose-colored glasses kinda girl, the ‘Golden Hour’ girl.
Well, here I come with a post-divorce album, bursting the fucking bubble.”
She also said that it might even be more country than Golden Hour:
“I’m a big patchwork quilt. You can cut up in a million different ways and still not be sure of what it is… sometimes I feel like this album has more of a foot in country than Golden Hour.”
But back to the teaser…
In a series on Instagram clips, she shared one audio teaser, and several others featuring what appear to be lyrics. If you piece together the clips, only the first of which actually contains any sound, you get these lyrics:
“Let me set the scene, two lovers ripped right at the seams They woke up from the perfect dream, and then the darkness came I signed the papers yesterday, you came and took your things away Moved out of the home we made, and gave you back your name.
What have we done? Did we fly too high? Just to get burned by the sun? No one’s to blame ‘Cause we called all the angels to save us Called them by name But I guess they got lost.”
