The "Praying" singer opened up about fearing she would never make music again. Rainbow will be her first album since 2012's Warrior. The past few years have been a mess of legal battles for the 30-year-old artist who tried to sever her contractual relationship with music producer Dr. Luke and Sony.
"I didn't know if I was ever going to put out music again," she told us about the almost 4-year hiatus. "I kept waking up and I would say, 'Ok, you can't just lay in bed. You gotta get up and you gotta go to the studio.' And even when I really didn't want to, I would."
Her first two singles from the record, "Praying" and "Woman," have been received by fans with great praise. The official YouTube videos have collectively racked up 24+ million views in less than half a month. Sans her signature dollar sign logo, Kesha has emerged from an emotionally tumultuous time an intensely poignant vocal powerhouse. We can't wait to hear Rainbow from start to finish!
