“Let me set the scene,” Kacey Musgraves sings on the lead single from her newest album, Star-Crossed, which finally arrives this week, nearly three years after 2018’s critically-acclaimed Golden Hour. “Two lovers ripped right at the seams / They woke up from the perfect dream / And then the darkness came.”
The title track also happens to be the first thing we hear in the trailer for the album’s cinematic companion, Star-Crossed: The Film, which fans can stream this week online on Paramount+.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the full-length, Bardia Zeinali-directed project, as well as how to get tickets to Musgraves’ upcoming tour dates.
When Is Star-Crossed: The Film Available?
How to Watch Kacey Musgraves’ Star-Crossed: The Film Online for Free
Paramount+ is the only place you can watch the Star-Crossed movie right now. The good news is that you can stream it right away with your Paramount+ subscription, or for free if you haven’t signed up for the service yet.
If you haven’t joined Paramount+ yet, the new streaming service offers a 7-day free trial for new customers, which means you can sign up with a new account and start watching Star-Crossed for free online the same day. After your first week, Paramount+ costs $4.99 a month for its base plan.
Paramount+ is one of the only streamers that comes with a free trial. The Essential plan — the service’s cheapest monthly option — starts at $4.99 per month after your week-long trial period, and you can always cancel your plan at any point during your free trial before you’re charged the monthly rate.
Note: the standard monthly Essential plan does include ads, but if you want a mostly ad-free experience, you can pay $9.99 for Paramount+’s Premium package, which also includes a free 7-day trial to start.
If you’re planning to keep your Paramount+ account for the long haul, you’ll save 16 percent with an annual membership. Both the Essential and Premium plans are eligible for one-week free trials. After your trial, the Essential package costs $49.99 per year ($4.17 a month), and the Premium package costs $99.99 per year (or only $8.33 a month).
Each plan includes access to stream Kacey Musgraves’ Star-Crossed for free online, plus access to CBS content, as well as NFL games and live news.
Star-Crossed: The Film Cast, Runtime
In addition to teaming up with Zeinali and Oscar-nominated cinematographer Matthew Libatique, Musgraves also recruited an all-star cast of actors, artists and celebrities for Star-Crossed. According to Paramount+, Emmy winner Eugene Levy, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Symone, comedian Megan Stalter, Princess Nokia and You‘s Victoria Pedretti all make appearances throughout the 50-minute film.
Star-Crossed: The Film isn’t the first time Musgraves has released a project on a streaming service over the last couple years. In 2019, she premiered The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show variety special on Amazon Prime Video, which also starred Camila Cabello, Leon Bridges, Lana Del Rey and James Corden. (You can sign up for a 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime here to watch it.)
