"We are truly delighted to have her as part of our Interscope Records family and look forward to working alongside the UMG Nashville team and her manager Jason Owen to deliver this important project to audiences around the world."

"Kacey's music has never had boundaries," adds UMG Nashville President, Cindy Mabe. "Her clever songwriting, adept storytelling, vulnerable and real emotional delivery, and her overall 'take me or leave me' spirit have translated through genre, time, space and culture. She simply connects. As we begin to set up her new music, it made sense to once again push the boundaries to reach more fans around the world as we continue to serve the fans who have been here from the beginning."

Musgraves' most recent album, the musically expansive "Golden Hour," came out in 2018. Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, co-producers of "Golden Hour," are working on the new album.
