Valerie June has shared a new climactic, string-laden piano ballad from her upcoming album “The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers”. Valerie June’s voice is always great, but it really soars on this one. Produced by Jack Splash (Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, John Legend) and Valerie June, “The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers” is sweeping and ambitious with earthy R&B production and a touch of psychedelia amidst its astral folk-pop orchestration, the pair arrived at a sound that is elegant and endlessly surprising. At the center is June’s spellbinding vocals and infectious sense of wonder that finds the Brooklyn-via-Memphis artist narrating the often precarious journey to joyful possibility.  The ethereal clip for “Why The Bright Stars Glow” embodies a dreamer’s aura as Valerie’s shimmering figure cuts against a night sky.

Conjuring a next-generation fusion of folk, soul, gospel, country and transcendental blues,The Moon and Stars, Prescriptions For Dreamers, Valerie June’s third full-length album for Fantasy Records is a deeply affecting work of genuine beauty and unassuming wonder.
