The single’s a fun, dance track with production that’s super reminiscent of her 2017 album Rainbow.
Chatting with SiriusXM, about the new track, Kesha said, “I created ‘Raising Hell’ in the basement of a strange home I’d never been to before.
“I was with my friends, and we were talking about life, and how we’re all very good-hearted people, but sometimes we just like to do bad stuff. It feels good, and it’s fun to be bad sometimes.”
The video sees Kesha play a TV preacher in an abusive relationship. She manages to break free of her husband by killing him, but is then wanted by police.
The film clip was direct by Luke Gilford. Watch the it down below.
High Road is due out in December. In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, Kesha said while making the album, “I got my balls back, and they’re bigger than ever.”
“I can go back to talking a little bit of shit. I really wanted to put a solid footprint back into pop music, like, ‘I can do this, and I can do this on my own.’ I don’t know if this is my last pop record, but I want to have one where I go out with a bang.”
