Kesha Talks About “Trippy” Direction for Third Album
Kesha’s preparing to appear on new reality TV show Rising Star, but these days, just a few months after being released from rehab, she’s already working on a new album.
The “Timber” star caught up with MTV recently to discuss her plans for new music. She’s been working on some “trippy” material, including a collaboration with Zedd, since finishing treatment. She explained: “It can borderline on trippy, a little different. I think people are gonna trip out.”
At the same time, the brazenness and craziness fans loved about the singer from her debut, which was toned down a bit for Warrior, seems to be returning. Speaking about a theme for one of her new songs, she said: “If you cheat on me, I’ll shoot you. But I love you so much, and I just want to be your best friend, and I love you, but I’ll shoot you.”
This new album will follow 2012’s Warrior, her sophomore album. While it didn’t perform poorly on the charts, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, it didn’t do as well as her Animal/Cannibal combination.
However, the disc put out through RCA and Kemosabe marked a different direction for the “Tik Tok” singer, who collaborated with Iggy Pop and The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne while still working with producers Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Shellback. As well, she aimed for a rockier pop sound she previously called “c—k pop.”
First single “Die Young” received a fair amount of buzz and reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 but had to be pulled off the radio following the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut. Following were promo single “C’mon” and “Crazy Kids.”
