Kesha’s ‘Life-Saving’ Album ‘Rainbow’ Leaks On The Day Of Her Emotional ‘GMA’ Interview And Performance

The past few years have understandably been very emotional for Kesha, but now, she’s finally ready to get back to music, and has thus far done so in a big way. She released “Praying,” the powerful first single off her upcoming album Rainbow, her first since 2012’s Warrior. The album, her third, is set to come out on Friday, but apparently some people couldn’t wait two more days, since the album has reportedly been leaked online.

Today has been more good than bad for Kesha, though, since this morning, she made an appearance on Good Morning America, during which she sat down for an interview with Robin Roberts and performed “Praying” and “Woman.” A choked up and clearly emotional Kesha told Roberts that the album is “saving [her] life”:

“It’s so personal. I’ve written every song on this album and they’re all so personal. The song, I think is just really important because it talks about me personally going through something very hard, lots of very hard things, making it through, not giving up, and finding empathy on the other side, which is incredibly hard sometimes. […] I think this record is, quite literally, saving my life. I hope you guys like it and I hope you can hear it, and I hope it helps people.”
