Kacey Musgraves Discusses Recording ‘Deeper Well’ at Electric Lady Studios: ‘Every Studio Has Its Own Energy’

Kacey Musgraves is taking fans farther into her Deeper Well.

Musgraves’ has an upcoming interview on Sunday TODAY With Willie Geist, and Billboard has an exclusive clip of the conversation. The chat took place at New York City’s iconic Electric Lady Studios, where Musgraves recorded her upcoming album, Deeper Well, out March 15 via Interscope Records/MCA Nashville.

Electric Lady Studios, in Greenwich Village, was commissioned by Jimi Hendrix in 1968. Though Hendrix spent only 10 weeks recording in the studio prior to his death in 1970, the studio has gone on to become a beloved creative and recording oasis for artists including Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Billy Idol, Questlove, Adele, Keith Richards, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

“This was the studio that we kind of inhabited for the few months that we spent working on this,” Musgraves tells Geist in the exclusive clip. “It was truly an amazing experience.”

Musgraves says of drawing inspiration from Electric Lady Studios, “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.

Geist comments that the colorful murals on the studio walls are from when Hendrix had the studio created, while Musgraves noted, “I don’t think it’s been touched. I think it’s pretty original … He commissioned these, which they still look amazing. They still look space-agey.”

She also discusses the studio’s location in the heart of Greenwich Village. “As you know there’s such a rich folk-music history, songwriter history, poets, activism — all of that happened here,” Musgraves said. “I was very drawn to getting out of Nashville and creating somewhere where there was a different energy, a different life kind of bubbling around you. I just think New York is one of the most unique cities in the world. It’s inspiring for sure.”

Musgraves recently released the album’s title track, and performed both “Deeper Well” and “Too Good to Be True” during an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

The full interview between Musgraves and Geist airs Sunday, March 10, on NBC. Watch the clip from the interview below:
