Kesha Is Working on a New Album

Today (Oct. 24, 2016), Kesha’s label Sony Music released a statement with BuzzFeed confirming that the 29-year-old performer is hard at work on music for a new album!

“Creating a new album takes time, and everyone’s goal is to deliver a high quality album consistent with Kesha’s past releases,” the statement shared. “We hope to share exciting new music with Kesha’s fans soon.”

The new release would be the first from the “Die Young” singer in four years, due in large part to her ongoing legal battle with producer Dr. Luke, who Kesha accused of sexual and emotional abuse in 2014. In August, Kesha filed to dismiss her sexual assault lawsuit in California, leaving her pursuit of an appeal in New York.

Kesha has reportedly been cooperating with her label, Kemosabe under Sony Music, even turning in 28 songs over the summer in an effort to move forward with her career. However, her lawyer Daniel Petrocelli does not believe that Kesha is currently receiving the support she needs from her label in order to get a new record completed anytime soon.

“Kesha has been trying for six months to record and release new music,” Petrocelli shared in a statement, via BuzzFeed. “Only in the last month, after our last court hearing, has any progress been made, but it is hardly enough. Kesha still has received no commitments on promotion, songs, or even a release date.

“We hope things turn around fast. Meanwhile, Kesha intends to continue participating in the creative process in the hopes she can meaningfully return to work.”
