Kesha releases new single with Zedd

Zedd and Kesha today release a new single, ‘True Colors’, a new version of a song from his 2015 album of the same name, which they performed together at Coachella earlier this month.

Kesha revealed that they were recording the track on Instagram last week, saying: “It’s a miracle when someone gives you a chance at finding your voice again with no reason other than that he is a fucking beautiful person with a heart of gold”.

“Just to clarify, we didn’t use any loopholes”, tweeted Zedd, after announcing the release. “Kemosabe [and] RCA gave us permission to release this song”.

“Thanks for the clarification Zedd”, added Dr Luke.

A previously reported, Kesha was recently unsuccessful in her bid to gain an injunction to temporarily release her from a record deal with Dr Luke’s Kemosabe label while legal proceedings between them continue. She accuses the producer and label boss of drugging and raping her. He denies the claims.

One of the reasons she was denied the injunction was that Sony and Dr Luke maintained that she was already free to record with other people. Dr Luke and his legal team will presumably hope that this new release proves that they are being accommodating.
