Kesha released the first track of her upcoming album, “Praying.”
“Praying” is extremely emotional in both the music and the video. Kesha shows empathy to those who have done her wrong in an extremely colorful music video that is just the beginning. The song is the first taste we got from Rainbow, Kesha’s upcoming third studio album due on August 11.
Upon the release of the song on July 6, Kesha shared the emotional backstory of the track.
“This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you… It’s a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. It’s also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal.”
