The latest full-length from Valerie June, The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers is an uncompromising culmination of Valerie June’s vision that incorporates traditional roots music, modern R&B, Afrobeat rhythms, orchestral string arrangements, and experimental pop-infused psychedelia into a reflective work that feels vital in 2021. The follow-up to her widely adored The Order of Time—a 2017 effort that earned the admiration of Bob Dylan and landed on best-of-the-year lists from the likes of Rolling Stone and the New York Times— The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers is a potent catalyst for that kind of magic. With her spellbinding vocals and infectious sense of wonder, June gently eases the listener into a far more charmed state of mind, one that quickly restores a powerful feeling of joyful possibility.
