“I don’t believe in violence but you know I won’t be silent/ I’m a lover, not a fighter/ But if anyone tried to hurt you, I would be ruthless for you/ Do something crazy — you know I would, baby/ I swear I’ve got your heart and if it came down to it/ I would be ruthless,” the lyric preview shows.

Deeper Well, recorded at New York City’s historic Electric Lady Studios and featuring singles “Deeper Well” and “Too Good to Be True,” was released on March 15 through Interscope/MCA Nashville.

“It was truly an amazing experience,” Musgraves recalled of recording at Electric Lady Studios in a segment for Sunday TODAY With Willie Geist.

“Every studio has its own energy, but this one has such a storied past. This building — and it literally being Jimi Hendrix’s apartment — right here, that’s some seriously good mojo. I just know so many amazing creatives are drawn to creating here, and there’s a reason,” she said.

Deeper Well is the singer-songwriter’s follow-up to Star-Crossed, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2021.

Billboard ranked the 14 tracks from the standard version of Deeper Well.
