Valerie June celebrates the new year with the release of “Within You” (Moon and Stars / Acoustic). LISTEN HERE. This special stripped-down version along with the previously released acoustic versions of “You And I” and “Why The Bright Stars Glow” featuring Mavis Staples preview the forthcoming deluxe version of June’s critically acclaimed album The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers, due later this month.

“This version of “Within You” infuses earthy instruments like banjo, fiddle, upright bass, and acoustic guitar,” June explains. “‘Within You’ is a song prescribed for Creativity, Believe, and Sacred Space. There is the potential to create more beauty and peace within every person.”

June achieved many career highlights this past year. Her latest LP, The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers, landed on numerous ‘Best Of’ lists in 2021 including Rolling Stone, NPR, and Bitter Southerner. Additionally, her song “Call Me A Fool” featuring Stax legend Carla Thomas was nominated for Best American Roots Song at the upcoming 64th GRAMMY Awards, the first nomination of June’s illustrious career. Also, “You and I,” the gorgeous lead track from The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers is featured in Apple’s brand-new #ShotOniPhone film. The poignant short film is called Saving Simon and was directed by Oscar® Nominee Jason Reitman and his father, Oscar® Nominee Ivan Reitman.

The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers, produced by June and Jack Splash, is sweeping and ambitious with earthy R&B production and a touch of psychedelia amidst its astral folk-pop orchestration. Uncut calls it “a psychedelic tour de force” that is “powerfully, elegantly subversive,” and Rolling Stone proclaimed it, “career making.” 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 follow-up to her 2013 breakthrough, Pushin’ Against A Stone, and the widely adored The Order of Time—a 2017 effort that earned the admiration of Bob Dylan and landed on best-of-the-year lists—The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers is a transportive, deeply affecting work – a potent catalyst for those foolish enough to dream.
