After a legal dispute with Dr. Luke, who wrote all or nearly all of Kesha's well known hits. She dropped out of the scene for a while. Today she has released a new song written by Ryan Lewis of Ryan Lewis and Macklemore.

In "The Song Machine" it talks about how Kesha had wanted to get away from the party girl image and head towards a more rock oriented style. While this song achieves that goal, albeit in ballad form, it is a pretty weak showing as it is fairly stereotypical in its subject matter, especially considering her history with Dr. Luke.

The video opens up with Kesha questioning the existence of God while splayed out on the ground. Soon some sparse piano chords come in and Kesha begins singing to a person that hurt her. A version of the millenial whoop accompanies in the background as the song builds. Kesha talks about how she can make it on her own and how "when she is done they wont even know your [his] name," which is ironic, because someone else wrote this song for her and Dr. Luke still has many many more hits than Kesha and Ryan Lewis combined. The song reaches a weak climax and ends without ever becoming bombastic.

This song will surely grace the radio waves throughout the US, and will mark a new direction in the career of Kesha, but whereas her previous work had a definite signature sound, Praying sounds much more generic and one could easily mistake this song for having been performed by any number of artists. Lets hope that her new album will provide some more inspired material.

Definitely agreed this is not as inspired as her other work. It's a shame, this loses a lot of value due to the overly literal themes and generic sound. You can really hear she's playing her comeback safely.

I only like Die Young by her, and I wouldn't disagree if you said that's overplayed or overrated either.
