It may still be a long time before we get to hear any new Kesha music, but in an interview with The New York Times Magazine, the singer confirms that 22 new songs definitely exist and are just waiting to be released to the public.
In addition to recapping Kesha’s grueling legal battle with her former producer Dr. Luke, the cover story offered details on a few new songs that Kesha played for the author in her living room.
One song, called “Hunt You Down,” is “a real country song with banjo and some real country sentiments: ‘If you fuck around, I’ll hunt you down.’”
But not all of Kesha’s new work skews country. “Learn to Let It Go” sounds like it could belong on the radio, while “Rosé” apparently calls out one of Kesha’s exes.
The most striking new Kesha song is called “Rainbow,” and it was produced and arranged by her longtime friend Ben Folds. “I found a rainbow, rainbow, baby,” Kesha sings on the track. “Trust me, I know life is scary, but just put those colors on, girl, and come and paint the world with me tonight.”
Apparently, Kesha submitted all 22 new songs to her label earlier this year, but the state of her new music remains in gridlock.
