Kesha Premieres ‘Hymn’ An Anthem For Outsiders

Just days after announcing her first solo tour in years, Kesha premieres another track off her comeback album, Rainbow, her first LP since Warrior back in 2012. Like “Praying,” “Motherf**king Woman,” and “Learn To Let Go,” her latest is another anthem. This time, however, it’s dedicated to outsiders.

Like she’s done with the other Rainbow tracks, she penned an essay explaining her inspiration. Read an excerpt below from the note published on Mic

“This song is dedicated to all the idealistic people around the world who refuse to turn their backs on progress, love, and equality whenever they are challenged,” she writes. “It’s dedicated to the people who went out into the streets all over the world to protest against racism, hate, and division of any kind. It’s also dedicated to anyone who feels like they are not understood by the world or respected for exactly who they are.”.

“This is a hymn for the hymnless, kids with no religion,” she sings on the track. Check out “Hymn” below. It’s another beautifully written and produced number from the 30-year-old singer.

    “Just days after announcing her first tour in years,” lol she had a tour last year… Fuck the world tour.

  • Sorry, I meant to say first solo tour. This time around The Creepies aren’t involved.
