It’s been over two years since the release of Kesha’s Rainbow – an album that shined a light on recovering from her eating disorder, abuse, and her lawsuit against Dr. Luke. Now, the singer has teased details of a fourth studio album, High Road via a new trailer.
Kesha announced the news on Twitter, saying: “Animals!!!! I’m so excited to announce that my album High Road is coming! I feel like this time around I reconnected to the unrestrained joy and wildness that’s always been a part of me, and in this process I have had the most fun I’ve ever had making a record.”
She added: “I hope you love it as much as I loved making it, and know I always have y’all in mind.”
The news follows the release of new song “Rich, White, Straight, Men” in June, which tackled themes of LGBTQ+ rights, sexism, reproductive rights, and immigration.
Last week, Kesha released a list of phone numbers you can call to hear a snippet of new music. “Time’s runnin’ out to get blessed!!!! Don’t wait!” she said in an Instagram video post that saw the singer in a retro television commercial. “Call now and add yourself to the🔥 hellraiser phonebook 🔥so I can always update you and bless you with some sacred secret information. Call 1-855-KESHASAVS.”
Speaking to Billboard last month, the LA-based artist opened up about the upcoming album: “I dug through the emotional wreckage, and now… I can go back to talking a little bit of shit,” she said. “I really wanted to put a solid footprint back into pop music, like, ‘I can do this, and I can do this on my own.’ I don’t know if this is my last pop record, but I want to have one where I go out with a bang.”
