The New York Times just did an entry in their Diary Of A Song series featuring Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn,” tracking the Golden Hour’s opening track from conception to finished product. It’s a good peek into the process of what goes into one of Musgraves’ songs, especially one that does a lot with so little.
Musgraves recently stopped by the BBC Studios to perform a cover of Keane’s mid-’00s hit “Somewhere Only We Know,” a song that shares the country musician’s flair for simple dramatics. The song has aged surprisingly well, and Musgraves offers up an exceedingly pretty take on it.
Check it out below.
