Kesha to Release New Single with Zedd Amid Legal Battle with Sony

Kesha to Release New Single with Zedd Amid Legal Battle with Sony

After three years of musical silence, Kesha will release her first new single this Friday.


The pop star will be featured on a new version of track “True Colors” by EDM producer Zedd, the Russian DJ announced on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Zedd & Kesha — True Colors officially out: 4/29,” the “Clarity” singer tweeted along with an image of gold and red album art.

“Music can be freedom,” he added.

The announcement comes after widespread speculation that the two were working on a musical project.

Earlier in the week, Zedd had teased a collaboration with the “Warriors” hit maker, sharing photos of her at a recording studio.

The “We R Who We R” crooner also joined Zedd on stage at last week’s Coachella, delivering a powerful and emotional charged rendition of his 2015 album’s title track “True Colors.”

The DJ was part of the many stars who rallied around Kesha in February when a Manhattan judge denied her a preliminary injunction to break her contract with Sony and no longer record with Dr. Luke, whom Kesha accused of drugging and raping her a decade ago.

Zedd has previosuly tweeted his support for the star amid her uphill battle with Sony.

“Very very sorry to hear about the whole situation,” Zedd tweeted days after the crushing court decision, offering to “produce a song for you if you want my help.”

The offer came through this week when Kesha also took to social media to sing the musician praises.

“It’s a miracle when someone gives you a chance at finding your voice again with no reason other than that he is a f—ing beautiful person with a heart of gold @zedd,” the singer captioned the photo of her singing.

Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lucasz Gottwald, has denied all allegations and Sony has said Kesha can create music with other producers. However, the singer has stood firm in her intent to break ties with the label.
