KE­SHA RE­TURNS WITH PRAY­ING

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Amer­i­can singer Ke­sha (above), who is caught in a le­gal bat­tle with mu­sic pro­ducer Dr Luke, is back with new mu­sic — Pray­ing is her first sin­gle in four years. “Your sup­port and love and kind­ness has got­ten me through the hard­est time of my en­tire life,” Ke­sha told her fans in a Twit­ter video, re­ports eon­line.com. Pray­ing is Ke­sha’s first solo ef­fort since her 2013 De­con­structed EP (ex­tended play record), and her first sin­gle since True Col­ors, her 2016 col­lab­o­ra­tion with Zedd. In an es­say for ac­tor Lena Dun­ham’s web­site Lenny Let­ter, pub­lished on Thurs­day, Ke­sha wrote about her come­back and the many set­backs she has faced over the years. With Pray­ing, she wrote, “I have chan­nelled my feel­ings of se­vere hope­less­ness and de­pres­sion, I’ve over­come ob­sta­cles, and I have found strength in my­self even when it felt out of reach.

“I’ve found what I had thought was an un­ob­tain­able place of peace. This song is about com­ing to feel em­pa­thy for some­one else even if they hurt you or scare you. It’s a song about learn­ing to be proud of the per­son you are even dur­ing low mo­ments when you feel alone.” Ke­sha added, “It’s also about hop­ing ev­ery­one, even some­one who hurt you, can heal.”

“This song is about me find­ing peace in the fact that I can’t con­trol ev­ery­thing — be­cause try­ing to con­trol ev­ery­one was killing me,” she said. “It’s about learn­ing to let go and re­alise that the uni­verse is in con­trol of my fate, not me.”
