Ke$ha confirms brand new single out later this month


KE$HA has confirmed that her brand new single will be released later this month, called ‘Die Young’.

The song will be the lead track off the singer’s upcoming second album, the follow up to 2010 hugely successful ‘Animal’.

She told MTV at the VMA’s last night: "I'm really happy to announce my new single. It's called 'Die Young' and it's coming out this month”.

"The first two records talked more about partying, which is a great, magical part of life, but some songs on the new record are more personal and vulnerable," she said.

"And you can hear more of the music I listen to when I'm lying in my bed. I'm not claiming that it's a rock record - but as long as it's f**king good, you can call it whatever you want. On this record, I said, 'Let's leave the tricks to a minimum and let me wail'."

Ke$ha has worked with the Flaming Lips and Iggy Pop on the new album. She has previously worked with Britney Spears, writing the singer’s smash hit ‘Till the World Ends’.
