The 26-year-old “Clarity” hit-maker was one of the first high-profile male artists to publicly support Kesha in her legal battle against Sony and Dr. Luke when he tweeted back in February, “very very sorry to hear about the whole situation. I’ll be happy to produce a song to you if you want my help.”
Zedd has followed through on his promise and has recruited Kesha to record an official re-release version of “True Colors,” the title track to his sophomore LP. Lyrically it’s amazing that a song not even intended or written for Kesha is the one that best describes the journey that she is on as she beautifully howls: “All my life, one page at a time/ I’ll show you my, my true colors/ No, no no no I won’t apologize for the fire in my eyes/ Let me show you my, my true colors, it ain’t no rainbow.” It’s truly perfect – THANK YOU ZEDD!!
“It’s such a blessing that Zedd has given me this opportunity to record his song ‘True Colors.’ This song’s message spoke to me so deeply that I knew I had to find my own interpretation and record it, to spread the beautiful message of personal empowerment. It gives me hope that I will someday soon be able to release my own album 🙏 Until then let’s all celebrate our own truth #truecolors” – Kesha
“True Colors” by Zedd and Kesha is available on iTunes / Apple Music now!
