Rainbow is the third studio album by Kesha. It was released on August 11, 2017.


Kesha revealed in an interview with Teen Vogue that while she was in rehab she wrote 14 songs with the help of a toy Casio keyboard.

Regarding the genre of her new album, Kesha released this statement in the August 2014 edition of Teen Vogue

I’m not going to be making a lullaby jazz record, just in case there’s anybody out there who actually thought that was a possibility. My music will always have balls until I’m an 85-year-old crazy granny, so don’t be worried about that.

While on her Kesha and the Creepies: Fuck the World Tour, Kesha announced she has 52 songs ready to be released.

In the October 2016 issue of The New York Times, we learned that Kesha had written 22 more songs that waiting to be completed, polished, and released. Kesha was provided with outside producers and Kesha and Kemosabe had agreed to work with about a dozen of them.[2]

On July 5, 2017, Kesha announced on social media platforms that "Praying" would be released the following day. The song was released along with its music video, alongside the album's pre-order.

The album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, marking her first of two nominations.
