“I dragged myself out of bed and took my emotions to the studio and made art out of them."

Yesterday, Kesha left this video message for her fans on Twitter, letting them know that, at long last, she was making her return to music.

“Animals, I have a surprise for you. Your support and love and kindness has gotten me through, hands down, the hardest time of my entire life. My new song “Praying” is coming out tomorrow. and I couldn’t have done this without you. I f-cking love you.”

And Animals, she delivered.

Caught in a complicated legal battle in an effort to be released from her contract with Sony and producer Dr. Luke, Kesha has not released music in four years. Though we saw her make an emotional return at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, it is wonderful to see Kesha releasing new music of her own. Kesha co-wrote the emotional ballad with Ryan Lewis and Ben Abraham, and she says that the song has a message.

According to an essay that Kesha penned for Lenny Letter, “This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you. It’s a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. It’s also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal.”

Give the song a listen here:
