Kesha is a motherfuckin' “Woman” in video for new song feat. The Dap-Kings: Watch

Kesha- co-directed the video with her brother Lagan Sebert (you may remember a clip leaked last month) and it features Kesha and the Dap-Kings (alongside Saundra Williams, a longtime collaborator of the late Sharon Jones) taking over a cowboy bar in Delaware. "I love you all so much". Her latest single, "Woman", is an all-out jam and feminist anthem that sees Kesha joyously singing the refrain, "I'm a motherfucking woman". Then Drew Pearson got on the piano and Wrabel started laughing.

And if it looks like Kesha is having a blast in the video, it's because she is.

Rainbow is out August 11.

"Woman" follows her recent release, 'Praying', which marked her first output since 2013 and her legal battle with producer Dr. Luke.

Kesha's new single, "Woman", is an immediate banger thanks to its soulful backbone and instantly stuck-in-your-head mantra of a chorus.

The video was shot at Oddity Bar in DE and co-directed by Kesha and her brother, Lagan.

For her first album in almost five years, Kesha worked with a wide variety of collaborators, including Ben Folds, Ricky Reed (Phantogram, Meghan Trainor), Wrabel (Adam Lambert, Afrojack), the Eagles of Death Metal, Dolly Parton and her mother, Pebe Sebert.

And Kesha has written a Rolling Stone essay about the new song.

She continued: "It was such a lovely experience to write such a strong female empowerment song with two men, Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel, because it reinforces how supportive men can be of women AND feminism". "Because it reinforces how supportive men can be of women AND feminism".

"I have always been a feminist, but for much of my life I felt like a little girl trying to figure things out", she writes.

"I had to rise to the occasion and take control of my voice, and in the process I gained a lot of confidence in my vocal ability I've never had before".

The musician has also penned an essay about the track, in which she says she "couldn't be more proud" of the album it comes from. In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever. "There were one or two or 12 different people playing real instruments together, and all that real human energy is exciting and very fun to listen to".

It was inspired by her 2016 tour with live band, The Creepies, where she began performing straight-up rock shows with no backing tracks or dancers.
