Kesha Announces Gag Order

Kesha has announced her new album Gag Order, set to drop on 19th May via Kemosabe/RCA Records, an album that finds the GRAMMY®-nominated pop star excavating the deepest recesses of her soul to date.  The Rick Rubin-produced record, which Kesha has labeled “post-pop”, is a full-bodied collection that flows like a stream-of-conscious journey through the psychedelic dark depths of the human psyche followed by basking in the cleansing light when finally reaching the surface.

Kesha Rose Sebert has teased the forthcoming album on Instagram over the past month as well as in a cameo in a recent 60 Minutes story on Rick Rubin. This Friday (28th April), she will drop a duo of pre-release tracks, Eat the Acid and Fine Line.Gag Order, which Kesha is executive producer on, is an album unlike anything she has created thus far in her career, yet somehow is an album that only she truly could have made. Forged in the fires of self-discovery and learning to finally accept the ugly, scary sides of ourselves, Gag Order feels like an emotional exorcism, unearthing and facing the darkness in oneself, brought to life with experimental, otherworldly production & lyrical vulnerability unlike anything the artist has written before. On Gag Order, the 36-year-old confronts her own reflection & finds empowerment in her own voice, with beautiful, heart aching results.

“Without the darkness there is no light. I finally let my darkness have the light.  I cannot fight the truth of this life being difficult and painful. It is for everyone,” wrote Kesha in an album manifesto. “An artist doesn’t exist to make others happy. I believe an artist gives voice, motion, colour to the emotions we all have. The good emotions, and the unmanageably fucking miserable ones.”
