She’s back! After a judge ruled that Kesha’s not allowed to get out of her contract with Sony, she’s decided to take her music into her own hands…and she’s gotten some help from Zedd. Listen to the studio version of the pair’s new single, ‘True Colors,’ right here!
Kesha, 29, is making her return to the music scene — and she’s doing it without Dr. Luke and Sony. Despite being forced to stick out her contract with the music company, where the man she claims raped her is still an employee, the singer has recorded a new song with Zedd…and it’s pretty epic!
“True Colors” is actually a song from the DJ’s 2015 album of the same name, but with some help from Kesha, he’s totally revamped the song into a newer version that features her amazing vocals. The pair actually performed the track at Coachella on April 16, when the 29-year-old surprised the crowd during Zedd’s set.
It was Kesha’s first live performance since her lawsuit against Dr. Luke and Sony began, and she received quite a warm welcome from the excited crowd. In case you forgot, Kesha claimed that Dr. Luke had raped her when she was younger, which he’s denied, and she attempted to get out of her contract with Sony so she wouldn’t have to work with him any longer. Unfortunately, a judge ruled against her, forcing her to keep the deal, and even though Sony agreed to make sure she wouldn’t work directly with her alleged abuser, she’s still attempting to appeal.
“True Colors” wasn’t supposed to be officially released until April 29, but leaked one day earlier, and fans are totally loving it! This is the first new music Kesha has released since her song “Timber” with Pitbull dropped in Oct. 2013, two and a half years ago, and we can imagine it’s quite a liberating feeling.
“It’s a miracle when someone gives you a chance at finding your voice again,” Kesha tweeted on April 27, gushing over Zedd. And just in case you were worried about the legalities of Kesha recording this song, Zedd clarified, “We didn’t use any loop holes. Kemosabe / RCA gave us permission to release this song.”
