"GMA" Interview: Kesha Finds Hope With 'Rainbow'
Kesha's highly anticipated Rainbow is slated for release on Aug. 11. Ahead of the album, Kesha is spreading some light on the interview circuit, including a sit-down with "Good Morning America."
Kesha dished about how the album's title, Rainbow, symbolizes hope and represents a nod to the LGBTQ community. It doesn't hurt Kesha hearts rainbows — she has many rainbow tattoos.
To add to the dazzle of the record, Kesha collaborated with GRAMMY-winning country superstar Dolly Parton on a cover of her 1980 hit "Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You" and gushed about the experience.
"I'm still not over it," she said. "So I'm just going to tell everybody about it forever."
While on set, Kesha also gave a live performance of her current hit single, "Praying" She explained to host Robin Roberts that this track, in particular, represents going through hard times and coming out the other side in one piece.
"I think it's just really important because it talks about me personally going through something really hard, lots of very hard things, making it through, not giving up and finding empathy on the other side, which is incredibly hard sometimes."
For Kesha, the meat of this album comes from the deeply personal meaning behind every track, which she hopes, in turn, helps other people.
"I've written every song on this album, and they're all so personal," Kesha said. "I think this record is quite literally saving my life. And I hope you guys like it, and I hope you can hear it, and I hope it helps people."
