Kesha's al­bum in­spired by aliens

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Kesha's new al­bum was in­spired by her en­coun­ters with aliens. The 30-year-old singer fea­tures space­ships on the art­work for her come­back al­bum 'Rain­bow' and she re­vealed that she has seen some in real life. Speak­ing on the 'Zach Sang Show', she said: "I was in Joshua Tree, to­tally sober, let me pref­ace - com­pletely sober ... I think peo­ple would be like, 'She was on acid' or some­thing. I wasn't. I was on noth­ing. I was a to­tally sober Sally, just a lady in the desert. I look up in the sky and there's a bunch of space­ships. "I swear to God, there were like five to seven, and I don't know why I didn't like try to take a picture of it - I just looked at it. I was sit­ting on a rock, and I was like, 'What in the hell is that?' I was try­ing to fig­ure it out, and then they went away. And then they came back. "They came back in a dif­fer­ent for­ma­tion than the one they were in pre­vi­ously. I was like, 'Those are aliens.' They were space­ships!" Kesha's new sin­gle 'Play­ing' is an emo­tional track, in­spired by her feel­ings of "se­vere hope­less­ness and de­pres­sion" and she re­vealed she has grown both as a per­son and an artist. She said: "I just feel like a to­tally dif­fer­ent artist - and not in a good or bad way. I had a great time. The first record was su­per fun, and that's where I was at. This is where I am now." Speak­ing pre­vi­ously about her new sin­gle, Kesha said: "I have chan­neled 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. It's also about hop­ing every­one, even some­one who hurt you, can heal." This is Kesha's first solo sin­gle since she em­barked on a court bat­tle with producer Dr Luke in 2013, after ac­cus­ing him of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing her.
