While preparing for the August 11 release of her extremely vulnerable new album, ‘Rainbow,’ Kesha stopped by ‘Good Morning America‘ Wednesday (August 9) to dish on the project and her recently released, revealing, and impactful single, “Praying.”
Consequently, for the 30-year-old songstress, who’s publicly ostracized legal battles with former manger and producer, Dr. Luke, went awry, an emotional Kesha held back the tears as she explained the importance of the record.
“[“Praying”] talks about me personally going through something very hard, lots of very hard things…making it through, not giving up, and finding empathy on the other side — which is incredibly hard sometimes.”
Additionally, she admits to Robin Roberts:
“I’ve written every song on this album and they’re all so personal. This record, quite literally, saved my life. I hope you guys like it and I hope you can hear it, and I hope it helps people.”

In addition to the soul-touching tracks the ‘Rainbow‘ has to offer, the album’s title symbolizes the singer seeing rainbows, relating to her optimism and new hopeful outlook on life.
Moreover, she indeed admits she’s now seen about 10 rainbow-related tattoos, and her house is filled with them.
Additionally, she further explains the album title’s meaning:
“I’ve always found the hope in the bright colors. I wanted to bring that more into my everyday life.”
Also, the new project represents a family affair of sorts, with her brother and mother supporting her on some tracks and helping capture monumental moments of the singer.
However, the relative she’s most excited about working with on the album is famed Country singer-songwriter, Dolly Parton.
“I consider her family now. That was like, the craziest thing in the world to me that she actually said yes to collaborating with me, I’m still not over it, so I’m just going to tell everybody about it forever.”
