Kesha is back with a bang(er).
The pop superstar and LGBTQ icon took a more introspective, downbeat approach to her acclaimed 2017 album Rainbow – entirely fitting given the struggles in her personal life – but her next record is set to be a return to her floor-filling party days.
Raising Hell, the first single from new album High Road which is expected to drop in December this year, is a massive empowering pop anthem that even features vocals from bounce pioneer Big Freedia (who you may recognise from Beyoncé’s track Formation).
Meanwhile, the Luke Gilford-directed music video sees the singer play a televangelist who ends up killing her abusive husband, dying her hair to change her identity and even going on the run from the law.
“When I wrote Rainbow, I was in a very different headspace, I had to address some very serious things, but now on my new record, I revisit my roots of pure and utter debaucherous joy,” she said.
“Kesha got her balls back, and they’re bigger than ever.”
