Kacey Musgraves shares retro music video for 'High Horse': Watch
The new video follows Musgraves’ clips for 'Space Cowboy', 'Butterflies,' and 'Mother' and is directed by Hannah Lux Davis.
Kacey Musgraves is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated artists of our time. With her highly acclaimed third studio album 'Golden Hour', which dropped earlier this March, she bagged a string of accolades. Everyone from NPR, Time, The Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone to Billboard, Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, The Fader and even Meaww declared 'Golden Hour' as one of the best 2018 albums so far.
One of the many highlights from the album was the unexpectedly perfect disco-country cut 'High Horse', which has now received the music video treatment. The music video exudes a retro 70s disco feel with a dash of country thrown in, a very apt style that defines the unique sound that Musgraves is now famous for. Musgraves stars as fed-up office worker in a stereotypical 70s style office, complete with plastic-sheen donuts and cigarettes in the break room. She toys with a disco ball pen while surrounded by her tacky office workers. From there, she breaks out into a surreal daydream as the disco ball pen transforms into her microphone. She daydreams about twirling the night away or partying with her friends at a Japanese-style karaoke bar, ultimately making a memorable exit while seated on a white horse.
The new video follows Musgraves’ clips for 'Space Cowboy', 'Butterflies,' and 'Mother' and is directed by Hannah Lux Davis — who’s also worked with big pop names like Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Halsey. Check out the music video for 'High Horse' below:
Golden Hour is out now via MCA Nashville. Meanwhile, Musgraves is on the road in support of her album about to wrap up her stint opening for Harry Styles which wraps up this weekend with a pair of shows at the Forum in Los Angeles. Starting September, she'll embark on her own headlining tour.
