From Kesha: "While shaking my ass at the stroke of midnight, ringing in the new year, new decade, with my new album coming this month, I thought to myself, ‘Damn. I think the best medicine for happiness and having a beautiful life is to celebrate it while I have it, with the people I love most. And ummm…shake my ass. As often as possible.’ So…this is my HIGH ROAD TOUR announce!!! If you wanna come shake ur body and hear the new jams LIVE, this is the place to do it! And, on the HIGH ROAD TOUR, you will have not 1, but 2 grand supreme expert body movers - BIG FREEDIA and YOURS TRULY - ME!!!!! Come see us on tour this Spring!!!!!!"
‘High Road’ has already been praised as “shaping up to be her most eclectic album to date” (Idolator). The raucous church choir-backed lead single “Raising Hell” (Big Freedia) was called “a gift from the heavens” (Bustle) that “preaches the gospel of partying” (Rolling Stone), kicking off a new musical era which captures both the wild spirit of her legendary party anthems and the heart of her GRAMMY-nominated 2017 ‘Rainbow’ album.
Following “Raising Hell”, Kesha dropped pre-release tracks “My Own Dance” – an irreverently brilliant ode to embracing all the facets of yourself -- and “Resentment” (feat. Sturgill Simpson, Brian Wilson & Wrabel) – a devastating country-tinged collaboration that tracks a relationship’s toxic unraveling -- providing fans a snapshot of the eclectic nature of the album.
You can watch the album trailer for ‘High Road’ HERE which Paper Mag called “a tasty conceptual salad that you're gonna eat right up.”
