Ke$ha Discusses Upcoming Album’s New Sound

Speaking with ‘Rolling Stone,’ Ke$ha talked about the sounds fans should expect on her upcoming album. Ke$ha Discusses Upcoming Album’s New Sound

Fun and frivolous yet somewhat dirty jams that work on the dance floor are what Ke$ha’s known for. Starting work on a new album in the spring with Dr. Luke, the pop star who scored hits “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R” has indicated on multiple occasions that the follow-up to 2010’s Animal will have a different sound. But just how much of a change is she making? The performer caught up with Rolling Stone at Dr. Luke’s home studio, giving fans a preview.

Most notable? She wants to bridge the radio’s current dance sounds with the rock she listens to on her own time. She said: "I'm on a steady diet of T./Rex and Iggy Pop."

She went onto add: "The first two records talked more about partying, which is a great, magical part of life. But some songs on the new record are more personal and vulnerable. And you can hear more of the music I listen to when I'm lying in my bed. I'm not claiming that it's a rock record – but as long as it's fucking good, you can call it whatever you want."

A common complaint about Ke$ha is her lack of singing – or even vocal ability, for that matter. In the interview, she indicated that the new release will feature more vocals and less rapping: “Some people weren't sure if I could sing. On this record, I said, 'Let's leave the tricks to a minimum and let me wail.'"

No tracks have been leaked, but Rolling Stone revealed the names of multiple finished and incomplete songs that could appear on the release: “Die Young,” “Crazy Kids,” “Supernatural,” and “Last Goodbye.” The album’s guest performers indicate a new direction for Ke$ha. The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, Iggy Pop, and the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney are expected to appear.
