Kesha Ditches Pop Music, Has A Creepy New Name
"...Much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform."
By now, we all know the hell of a few years Kesha has been through. After battling for musical and mental freedom from Sony Records and alleged abuser Dr. Luke - and being denied both - she has decided to take a different route to find peace of mind.
Unable to perform any material she's created under the name "Kesha" without permission from Dr. Luke, she decided to perform new material under the name Kesha and The Creepies - yup, that's with the help of a band. And it's not pop music, either.
"The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music," she wrote on Instagram. "I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation."
It's been too long," she continued. "Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I've hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us. The time has come to get creepy!"
Kesha encouraged fans to visit her site keshasparty.com and to use the password "FUKTHEWORLD" to unclock exclusive pre-sale tickets. The short and intimate tour will travel the U.S. from July 23rd to October 1st.
Looks like the resilient singer is ready to reclaim her love for music. We couldn't be more happy for her. See the Instagram post below.
