Kesha has made her grand return with her new album, Rainbow.
On Wednesday, the singer appeared on “Good Morning America” to perform a few songs from the record, including “Praying” and “Woman”. When talking about her first album in four years, out on Friday, the singer reveals the impact its recording had on her.
“I think this record has quite literally saved my life. I hope you guys like it, I hope you can hear it and I hope it helps people,” Kesha said.
Trying not to cry, Kesha tells Robin Roberts how personal the album is to her. “It’s so personal. I’ve written every song on this album and they’re all so personal,” she explained. When it comes to “Praying”, the first single from the album, it’s about going through what she has gone through and coming out the other side.
“This song I think is just really important because it talks about me personally going through something very hard, lots of very hard things, making it through, not giving up and finding empathy on the other side, which is incredibly hard sometimes,” she said.
In 2014, the singer filed a lawsuit against her former producer Dr. Luke. In the lawsuit, she claimed he had physically, emotionally and sexually abused her; she also asked to be released from her contract with Sony.
