Kesha recruits Big Freedia for new single “Raising Hell”

The pop star takes on the role of a preacher in her brand new video.

October 24, 2019

Kesha is back and she's bringing New Orleans' bounce icon Big Freedia along for the ride. The pair appear together on "Raising Hell," the first single from Kesha's new album High Road. You can see a video for the track, starring Kesha as a preacher, above.


High Road is due in December and was preceded by a trailer earlier this week. Speaking about the album earlier this year Kesha said she'd "got her balls back" while recording it.

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. It 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.
