No one really seems to know the official scoop about the new song from Kesha, entitled Lover, that just appeared online, out of nowhere, with its kaleidoscopic trip-hop vibe. Spookey Ruben and Schpilkas lent co-production efforts to the track, which is a complete sonic departure from the party anthems we’ve grown accustom to from the Timber singer.
There’s been no actual word from Kesha about the song, which tells me that it must be intended as a random treat for her fans she refers to as “animals.” Producer, Schpilkas, shared a new version of Lover on his soundcloud account which he refers to as the “Official Version 2015.” It has been taken down but is still available for listening, above. If anything, this new music is hopefully a sign that Kesha’s readying an official release of some sort.
Has she broken free from the contractual clutches of Dr. Luke? I hope so! New music from Kesha is long overdue.
