Also I put together a couple of artworks if anybody wants to use them (or has suggestions to make them better, I did them super fast)

star-crossed : the film TO BE RELEASED

EXCLUSIVELY ON PARAMOUNT+

“star-crossed,” TITLE TRACK AND FILM TRAILER BOTH OUT NOW
Six-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves will release her highly anticipated fourth studio album star-crossed on September 10 via Interscope Records / UMG Nashville. star-crossed : the film, directed by Bardia Zeinali, stars Musgraves and will be streamed exclusively via Paramount+ on the same day. The title track, written by Musgraves, Daniel Tashian, and Ian Fitchuk, along with the film’s trailer are both out now. star-crossed is the first album of new material from Musgraves since releasing her groundbreaking and critically acclaimed album Golden Hour in 2018. Check out title track “star-crossed,” here and check out star-crossed : the film trailer here.

star-crossed, the album, found Musgraves collaborating once again with co-producers and writers Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian and was recorded in Nashville, TN earlier this year in just under 3 weeks. The 15-song collection, structured as a modern-day tragedy in three acts, tells an extremely personal journey of heartache and healing and displays Musgraves continued growth as one of the finest singer-songwriters of our time. Pre-order the album here.

star-crossed : the film takes the music from the studio to the screen with gorgeous visuals and a sense of heightened reality envisioned by Musgraves and Zeinali and shot by Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Matthew Libatique (A Star Is Born, Black Swan). “We wanted it to feel cinematic and epic without compromising the heart and the emotion,” Zeinali says, “to feel fantastical and heightened and tell her story through the lens of art and fashion.” The 50-minute movie was filmed over a 10-day shoot in Los Angeles and features cameos from Emmy Award-winner Eugene Levy, Victoria Pedretti (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, You), singer-songwriter Princess Nokia, Symone (RuPaul’s Drag Race winner) and comedian Megan Stalter. The global premiere of Kacey Musgraves’ star-crossed : the film will exclusively debut on Paramount+ in the US, Latin America, Australia, the Nordics and Canada beginning on Friday, September 10. Fans outside of these markets can watch on MTV across its worldwide network of channels in nearly 180 regions. star-crossed : the film is presented by Interscope Films and is an Anonymous Content Production in association with UMG Nashville, Sandbox Entertainment and Golden Girl Productions.

The red vinyl really doubles down on the Christmas realness of the cover, but at least it matches?

I'm gonna cave and buy one variant, and might go for this one as I'm not sure whether every variant comes with the red veil image, which I can pretend is the cover when I display it. Do we know? I don't see it in every mock-up.
 
Urban likes to put up new vinyls on Wednesday, I think. If we make it to Friday with no alt cover variant from them I guess I'm going purple/clear split.

The HMV version is the same as the Target version, and Target says their version has an "exclusive sleeve," so I've been assuming the veil photo is the exclusive sleeve, i.e., the other variants don't have it.
She's released a Spotify Fans cassette with alternate cover art (the red is black)..... ugh. Was hoping for a vinyl.

I quite like the black background. Makes it look classy. Though it also means the pink reflections don't make much sense.
Watch this be the Suburban Outfitters alt cover. It probably won't be (and that's assuming they have one), but if it is: I told you so.

To be fair, if it does open down the middle, that's a neat trick - in and of itself, but also because it would physically symbolize the heart breaking - that couldn't be easily replicated with another cover.
 
Just noticed Amazon UK's non-exclusive listing is clear (or white? I think clear), not half-and-half. Maybe that's the standard, and the half-and-half is a Kacey store exclusive?

Amazon US still only shows the exclusive versions, oddly.

EDIT: The plot thickens... Walmart, Barnes & Noble, and Bull Moose have listings for the three surprise variants, but no others. So it seems like those are the standard in the US. Weird.

Her posting the red veil and microphone covers on Insta but not the dancing one I like is a personal attack on me.
