Former glitter pop star Kesha has some super great news – she’s taking her musical career to another direction – some good ol’ dirty rock n’ roll and country crooning. She made the announcement on her Instagram account, talking about her latest F*ck The World Tour with her newly formed band, Kesha And The Creepies.
The day has come that I, now, present to you, Kesha and The Creepies. This project and upcoming tour comes from my deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music. I thrive from making and performing music, and much like a flower with no sun, my soul slowly dies when I don't get to create and perform. So, for a short ride and in mostly small intimate venues, I will be performing a new creepy creation. It's been too long. Until I can release my own music I will be reinventing some of my old songs and some of my favorite songs from my musical idols. I've hand picked songs from artists that have helped shape who I am and the music I make today. I have missed you, all of you, so if you would like to boogie, come join us.

She is referring to her legal custody battle with music producer, Dr. Luke. In the suit she filed, she alleges that he sexually assaulted her multiple times, drugged her and threatened her family if she ever spoke out. She sought to be legally emancipated from her contract, saying she couldn’t work with him anymore. Till the resolution of the court battle, she will be unable to work with any other record label, neither can she sing her music publicly and earn from it. The hashtag #FreeKesha has been trending since she had fans on her side, considering the clandestine mistreatment in the industry.
A couple of months ago, DJ and producer Zedd worked with Kesha on a song called True Colors, for which she provided some breathtaking vocals. Kesha last performed live at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards as she sang to loud applause and approval, a song by the legendary Bob Dylan.
