Valerie June’s The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers was one of 2021’s most celebrated releases.  Now, the GRAMMY-nominated, genre-busting artist expands the album’s visionary scope with a special digital Deluxe Edition featuring 23 tracks in all: The Moon and Stars’ 14 original tracks, six reimagined, acoustic versions plus three brand-new covers that align with the album’s theme: Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon,” John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Stephen Foster’s “Beautiful Dreamer.”

The Deluxe Edition’s six reimagined album tracks include the previously shared “Within You” (Moon And Stars/Acoustic)“Why The Bright Stars Glow” (Moon And Stars/Acoustic) feat. Mavis Staples, and “You And I” (Moon And Stars/Acoustic) along with three previously unreleased acoustic versions of the songs “Smile,” “Stardust Scattering,” and “Stay.”

“This Deluxe Edition reimagines a few of the album’s key tracks in a stripped-down acoustic setting that offer intimate takes of some the album’s richest arrangements,” June explains. “Listening to the original album versions alongside these acoustic arrangements shows the life of each song and how they can be appreciated both with luscious layers and in their simplest forms.  Songs are living entities, and it’s always lovely to watch how a song with a huge arrangement can still touch a listener even in its simplicity.”
