Ke$ha fans eager for some new music from the dollar sign diva can get their fix via the surprisingly emotional, raw vocal she laid down while covering Bob Dylan’s 1963 single “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” for Amnesty International’s upcoming Chimes Of Freedom: The Songs Of Bob Dylan compilation. “Getting a chance to cover a Bob Dylan song for Amnesty Interntaional was a massive deal for me,” K-Dolla admitted in a making-of clip. Watch below.

“I pulled up my Garage Band on my laptop and just sang through the song once,” Ke$ha explains in the below video. “And by the end of it I was just crying hysterically alone on my bed.”

Turns out that initial vocal is the one she and producer Bob Ezrin went with for their contribution to the 76-song compilation, which also features Adele, Miley Cyrus and My Morning Jacket, among others, and will be released on January 24.
