Quickly after saying her new album Rainbows and releasing “Prayer,” her first solo single since 2013, Kesha has launched a second single, “Lady.” And though this tune additionally comes with a private artist’s assertion wherein she calls the method of making it with Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel “among the finest writing periods of my life … as a result of it reinforces how supportive males will be of girls AND feminism,” ”Lady” is extra of a dance jam than a heartfelt ballad.
Drawing from her self-proclaimed love of basic rock and soul and their uncooked, dwell instrumentation, Kesha enlisted the Dap-Kings, the band behind late soul sensation Sharon Jones, so as to add some “particular sauce” to the tune, together with a rousing horn half that provides the tune a joyful aptitude. Anchored by a catchy chant of “I’m a motherfucking girl” and a Girl Gaga-esque spoken phrase bridge, ”Lady” is an empowered return to the social gathering anthems that made Kesha well-known.
The tune comes accompanied by a country-western-meets-Tarantino video directed by Kesha and her half brother; you’ll be able to watch that under, adopted by the conclusion of Kesha’s essay in regards to the tune as printed in Rolling Stone.
To me, the factor I’m most pleased with is that the tune and video by no means misplaced the pure pleasure from the day it was birthed. I actually hope folks get pleasure from this tune as a result of I had one of the best time making it. I hope that vitality passes by means of folks and the enjoyable is infectious. It’s essential for me that individuals know that there are loads of feelings on my new album Rainbow – however the wild enjoyable vitality that first impressed me to carry out has not, and can by no means, go away. I’m nonetheless a motherfuckerrr.
