Kesha releases her first single since legal battle

Los Angeles, April 30 (IANS) Singer Kesha has released her first single titled “True colors” after a legal battle with Sony Music Entertainment.

The “Tik tok” hitmaker collaborated with musician Zedd to re-release a version of his song “True colors”, which was unveiled on Friday, her first new track in over three years, reports

“‘True colors’ spoke to me so deeply I had to spread the beautiful message of personal empowerment… this is more than a song. It’s a declaration of my truth ‘True colors’ (sic),” the singer had earlier posted on her Twitter handle.

The 29-year-old is currently locked in a legal battle with her record label as she fights to be released from her contract over allegations that she was sexually assaulted by record producer Dr. Luke.

An appeal, which she launched against a court decision that she must remain in her contract with the record company, was declined earlier this month.

“Although Luke’s alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is a female, her claims do not allege that Luke harbored animus toward women or was motivated by gender animus when he allegedly behaved violently toward Kesha… Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime,” the judge said at the hearing.

Meanwhile, Kesha has been asked to testify under oath about the allegations she has made against the 42-year-old record producer.
