All signs point to new music from Kesha. In a new interview with Billboard, the singer discusses her fourth studio album, which is due to release this December. The LP will mark a full return to Kesha's pop roots, after leaning into a more country-soul sound on her last record, 2017's Rainbow. The as-yet-untitled new record was co-written with her mom Pebe, Wrabel, Justin Tranter, Tayla Parx, Nate Ruess, and Dan Reynolds (of Imagine Dragons). Production was handled by Jeff Bhasker and Ryan Lewis.

While Kesha is tight-lipped on details, she maintains that she "got her balls back," saying that “I can go back to talking a little bit of shit. I really wanted to put a solid footprint back into pop music, like, ‘I can do this, and I can do this on my own.’ I don’t know if this is my last pop record, but I want to have one where I go out with a bang.” She also offered a lyric snippet from the new project: “We get it that you’ve been through a lot of shit, but life’s a bitch, so come and shake your tits and fuck it/You’re the party girl, you’re the tragedy, but the funny thing is, I’m fucking everything.”

There's still no word on when we'll get to hear the album's first single, but in her words, expect it "VERY soon."
