Kesha To Release “Raising Hell” As First Single From ‘High Road’
Since announcing her fourth album, High Road, on Monday, Kesha has wasted no time promoting her new era. The pop star announced that “Raising Hell” (out October 24) would be the lead single via her phone hotline — yes, I signed up! — and now shares an extended preview of the Luke Gilford-directed video. In it, the former K$ channels her inner-televangelist and generally causes a raucous. “Mama raised me well, but I don’t wanna go to heaven without raising hell,” she preaches on the pop/rock chorus.
The preview only gives a brief snippet of the song, but I’m already addicted. “I’m so excited to share my new music with y’all,” Kesha captioned what appear to be dual album covers (below) on Instagram. “I feel like this time around I’ve reclaimed my love of life. And I’ve decided to ‘fight for my right to party’…on my own terms!” This follows the declaration she gave in her High Road documentary. “On my new record, I revisit my roots of pure and utter debaucherous joy,” the 32-year-old reveals. “Kesha got her balls back and they’re bigger than ever.”
