Kesha's New Album Trailer Is 'Debaucherous' Glitter Pop Insanity

Give it.


“Kesha got her balls back.”

That just about summarizes a new trailer released for Kesha’s upcoming album, High Road. The artist formerly known as Ke$ha took a break from the drunk glitter pop sound that filled her first two albums when she released Rainbow in 2017, but now she says she’s revisiting her “roots of pure and utter debaucherous joy."

“I’ve seen the light,” she says in the trailer. “Life is like driving across the country in a pretty small astro van with your whole family in it for like 90 years. Because I think life is a vacation from where we go when we die.”

The trailer has Kesha running from the cops, leading a congregation in worship, dodging a dance confrontation with the creepy twins from The Shining, and everything in between. A complete mess of fears and trouble and glittery fun.

It also features glimpses of her new music, including the first upcoming single off the new album, “Raising Hell.” The title of the track alone is enough to suggest we’re returning to the olden days of Ke$ha.

But that doesn’t mean it’s all going to be “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R.” It sounds like High Road was about finding a balance between the old and the new—refusing to give up who she used to be but also acknowledging how she’s changed over the last few years.

“Emotions are forever,” she said in a recent interview with Billboard. “Part of this album is resurrecting the fact that you can be a fucking mess in your head one day, and then you can also be glittered-up and have the best night of your life.”

A release date for High Road hasn’t been given yet, but it seems likely “Raising Hell” is coming any day now. And if this vid is any indication, it can’t come soon enough.
