Follow the Rainbow to find Kesha‘s pot of gold…
Following the release of “Praying“, “Woman” and last week’s “Learn To Let Go,” the Warrior queen has revealed “Hymn,” an uplifting anthem off of her forthcoming album Rainbow, which we will finally have in full next week on Friday (August 11).
Filled to the brim with fabulous lyrics celebrating the outcasts (“Dreamers searchin’ for the truth/ Go on, read about us in the news/ Pretty reckless, pretty wild…“) and woozy singalong chants, “Hymn” sees the songstress confidently assuring us that she’s got our back and to celebrate our individuality. The sentiment is signature Kesha, whose always been a strong alley for the freaks ‘n’ geeks of the world (See “We R Who We R“).
“I know that I’m perfect, even though I’m fucked up/ Hymn for the hymnless, don’t need no forgiveness/ ‘Cause if there’s a heaven, don’t care if we get in/ This is a hymn, hymn, hymn for how we live, live, live…,” Kesha chants on the hook above the song’s hazy, slow-churning beat, bringing to mind Miley Cryus’ “We Can’t Stop.”
“I think that one of the reasons why my music connects with people who feel like they don’t fit in is because I have never fit in either — this is why the song ‘Hymn’ is so special to me,” Kesha said in an essay to Mic. “The longer title was ‘Hymn for the Hymnless.’ And when I say ‘hymnless,’ I’m talking about people who feel like they don’t fit in, people who feel like they don’t have a hymn.”
