Kesha says 'Rainbow' album 'literally saved my life'


With Kesha's comeback album, Rainbow, due out this Friday, the pop star made an appearance today on Good Morning America to perform lead singles, "Praying", and, "Woman". In 2016, a NY judge denied Kesha's motion requesting to be released from her recording contract with Sony, though the judge also ruled she could work with another Sony producer.

Kesha's new music is her most personal to date and she confessed her new single, Praying, helped her navigate the tough times in the past two years as her legal battle with producer Dr. Luke rumbled on.

Rainbow is still a deeply personal, empowering, and meaningful album for Kesha. "I hope you guys like it and I hope you can hear it, and I hope it helps people".

"Well, I think this record, quite literally, saved my life", Kesha said on GMA.

Speaking of the significance of the album's title Rainbow, she said 'I'm trying to look as much like a rainbow as I can'. "I've always just found hope in the bright colors, and I wanted to bring that more into my everyday life".

Kesha went on to talk about how special it was to work with her family on an album that's so important to her. As she sings about being proud of who she is, and hoping that some unnamed oppressor finds peace, it's hard to not feel her own emotion throughout.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kesha discussed working with her mother and other family members on the album, alongside Dolly Parton, adding: "I consider her family now".
