Kesha is finding strength for today in the past.
The 30-year-old singer released “Learn to Let Go,” the third single off her upcoming album, “Rainbow”, on Thursday, an uplifting anthem set to a video where Kesha takes a deep dive into home movies and memories of her past.
“It’s about embracing your past, but not letting it define you,” Kesha said in a Huffington Post op-ed explaining her latest offering. “Learn from your mistakes but don’t dwell on them, and if you feel like someone has wronged you, let that be their problem ― not yours.”
“For the video we play on that concept by incorporating home movies that my aunt Sonia Sebert had filmed over the years and then we recreate some of the scenes with me as an adult in a really whimsical kind of way,” she shared about the accompanying music video. “It’s this idea of reconnecting to my child-like self because that’s when you are so full of wonder and joy.”

“Rainbow” is out on Aug. 11.
The written word has been a big part of how Kesha has chosen to frame her most recent work. In addition to the op-ed for “Learn to Let Go,” Kesha recently penned another piece, where she candidly opened up about her first single in nearly five years, “Praying.”
