Buckle up for another ride from Kesha. “I’m a motherfucking woman,” Kesha declares again and again in the second song from her forthcoming studio album Rainbow.
We’re all still reeling from last week’s release of “Praying” — Kesha’s first new song in a long time and an honest reflection on a rough five years. Now it’s time to have a little fun! “Woman” is a feminist anthem with a country vibe (Backed up by Dap-Kings), and it comes with a great music video presented like a short film:
In a new essay for Rolling Stone, Kesha explains that Rainbow is filled with music that “sonically sounds more like the music I listen to than anything else I’ve ever done in the past.”
“With Woman, I hope my fans will hear that wild spirit still strong inside me but this time it was created more raw, spontaneously and with all live instrumentation, which I found was a huge reason I loved the records I did love. There were one or two or 12 different people playing real instruments together, and all that real human energy is exciting and very fun to listen to. I wanted this song to capture that organic, raw, soulful sound and keep the imperfect moments in the recordings because I find the magic in the imperfections.”
Rainbow will be released August 11. Pre-ordering now will get you “Praying” and “Woman” straight away, or you can just stream ’em at the usual places.
