Kesha's Long-Awaited Rainbow Album Is Here

No One Wants to Say Whether Dr. Luke Is Profiting From Kesha's New Music

Kesha Shares Emotional First Performance of 'Praying'

Rainbow is exactly the kind of album you would've expected; it's full of anthems and party tracks about empowerment, independence, survival and forgiveness, and if the ultimate revenge truly is living well, then she's sure as hell getting it.

Now, she's beginning to unpack the song as well as the rest of her album.

As CI readers know, Kesha is back in the public's eye after a long battle with Dr. Luke.

The 30-year-old, who is back on the scene after a hard four year hiatus, released Rainbow on August 11 alongside a track off the album with the same name.

The 30-year-old singer has had a hard few years with her decision to sue producer Dr. Luke for alleged sexual and emotional abuse making more headlines than her music. That means all of his other contractual rights in Rainbow - such as his right to a percentage of money earned by the record and his right to sue if he believes the terms of the contract aren't being met - remain intact.

Roberts asked Kesha to discuss how music has helped her cope with the troubling experience with Dr. Luke. Given that her most recent amended lawsuit was rejected by New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich in March, the new album could potentially reinvigorate her case. She appeared visibly emotional, but belted lyrics like "I'm proud of who I am" with complete command.

But the most interesting thing about Rainbow may be the one aspect of the album it's possible to view more or less objectively: the music.

Kesha wrote Praying with Ryan Lewis, Ben Abraham, and Andrew Joslyn; Lewis (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) produced the track.

Rainbow features collaborations with Eagles of Death Metal and Dolly Parton.

And if the word country turns you off, fret not: Kesha is still Kesha, lacing songs with innuendo and an undeterred desire to get drunk and dance. "You're going to learn that art can heal people".

And in a video released to Kesha's VEVO channel on Monday August 7, the singer performed her first live performance of "Praying", standing in front of a crowd at YouTube. It would be nice to report that the songs addressing the distress of the last few years reveal her as a great confessional singer/songwriter, but the clunkiness of her most sober material here blunts its impact.

Five years is enough of a gap to kill just about any career in popular music.
