One month ago today country singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves released her highly anticipated new album Golden Hour. The new LP saw almost immediate praise from fans and critics alike. Its inviting tone and Kacey’s smooth voice has helped it pick up new listeners who may not be that acquainted with country music. For what it’s worth, the album does stray just beyond the country-label to deliver something more universal and uniquely appealing. But at the end of it all, it is still simply a solidly enjoyable collection of songs.
For proof of this look no further than one of the lead-off singles “Space Cowboy.” That track was initially released as a teaser of what was to come on the new LP, and now it’s gotten the official video treatment. The track itself has sparse instrumentation, but its space (no pun intended please) is engaging as it lets Kacey’s voice shine over everything. The video sees a fairly literal approach to the lyrical content, but despite this it looks absolutely lovely. Give it a watch below.
