Kesha's new single Rainbow is the self-love anthem we need right now

12 Août 2017

The 30-year-old, who is back on the scene after a hard four year hiatus, released Rainbow on August 11 alongside a track off the album with the same name.

The final chapter of music critic Simon Reynolds' exemplary history of glam rock, Shock and Awe, concentrates on the genre's influence between punk and the present day. But does the world want a Kesha who's traded in irreverence for righteousness?

If Kesha could go back in time, she'd have some words for her teenage self, who dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles with three things: her grandpa's auto, a demo tape, and a dream. "I've found what I had thought was an unobtainable place of peace".

The complimentary critical reviews of "Rainbow" are what many hope will be a closing chapter in Kesha's legal battle with Gottwald. The loss for Kesha remains in appeals.

Kesha has experienced a string of setbacks in her case against Dr. Luke since filing her lawsuit, preventing the singer from escaping her contract with the record label boss as she originally hoped.

"I've written every song on this album and they're all so personal", Kesha told Robin Roberts.

"Rainbow" is released Friday August 11 on Kemosabe. She also expands her sound to encompass twangy, country-infused pop on "Hunt You Down" and "Old Flames", featuring none other than Dolly Parton.

"Dear Kesha, At this very moment you may be wondering whether it was really a good idea to drop out of high school", she begins.

Kesha explains that while in rehab for her eating disorder, "that had gotten wildly out of control", she had no access to her phone or computer, and as a result was completely unable to work. But for the time being, her being allowed to reenter the conversation, to open herself up to that critique, is a victory worth celebrating.

When speaking with the co-host, the hitmaker said, "I feel so much right now I can't even".

The letter, shared by CBS's "This Morning", reveals some of the hardships and struggles the singer faced in her quest to find fame and reflects on where she is in her life today.
