Just a week after sending chills down our collective spines with the release of "Praying" Kesha has returned with a second, incredible single you will be singing along to in no time at all. As in "Praying", Kesha again vocally lets loose, bolstered by horns that slink through the song then rejoice in bursts.
The song comes accompanied by a country-western-meets-Tarantino video directed by Kesha and her half brother; you can watch that below, followed by the conclusion of Kesha's essay about the song as printed in Rolling Stone.
In fact, Kesha said as much in an extensive essay for Rolling Stone.
The song itself is all about being proud and independent as a woman. She also wrote that Rainbow sounds more like music she actually listens to than much of the music she's made in the past and that she gained more confidence in her last tour. We could just decide not to have any more kids and the human race would be over. Writing about "Woman" in particular, she wrote: "With "Woman", I hope my fans will hear that wild spirit still strong inside me but this time it was created more raw, spontaneously and with all live instrumentation, which I found was a huge reason I loved the records I did love".
Kesha wants everyone to know she's a "motherf***ing woman" in her new power anthem about being self-sufficient and strong. "In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever", she wrote.
The singer, who is releasing her first solo music since being embroiled in a legal battle with former producer Dr Luke, dropped feminist-inspired track Woman on Thursday - alongside a powerful video. Today, she's got another video, for another of the album's singles. "In the past, I've always felt like I was trying to prove something, trying to be someone I thought people wanted me to be, but on this record, I'm just telling the truth about my life". I have never had such a wonderful and hilarious work day as I did that day.
"All I ever wanted was to be able to make music without being afraid, scared, or abused", Kesha wrote on Facebook in February 2016.
