Kesha has claimed she is still not 'free' to release new music

Kesha has claimed she is still not "free" to release new music but is counting the days until she can.



Kesha has claimed she is still not "free" to release new music.

The 36-year-old singer departed Dr Luke's Kemosabe - which is distributed by RCA Records - in December, six months after her long-running legal battle with the producer came to an end and while she is excited about her "brand new and very exciting chapter", she admitted she's still counting the days until fans can hear her first new work since her 2023 LP 'Gag Order'.

She told V magazine: "There is a day - although I won’t say the day - but there is a day marked on my calendar when I am free to release music.”

Asked what she wants to tell her fans, she added: “So just know that she is out here in the woods writing and singing till four in the morning, ferociously. I am being a feral wild woman out here. So just know that.”

The 'Praying' hitmaker insisted she is in a good place in her life right now.

She said: “I’ll say this: I’ve never felt happier, more excited, more at peace and had such a purpose in my entire life. And I feel like I have earned the right to be this happy for sure. So letting that be…I am loving every minute of what feels like a brand-new and very exciting chapter."

The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker and music producer Dr. Luke, 50, had been locked in a legal dispute for years after she filed a lawsuit accusing him of drugging and raping her after a party in 2005, prompting the music executive- who denied the allegation - to file a defamation case.

But in June last year, they settled out of court after nearly 10 years, just weeks before they were set to go to trial.

The pair said in a joint statement shared on Kesha’s Instagram stories: “Kesha and Dr Luke have agreed to a resolution of the lawsuit, and have agreed to issue and post a joint statement regarding that resolution.”

It went on to give two separate statements from the pair.

Kesha, previously known as Ke$ha, said in her section of the post in white capital letters on a black background: “Only God knows what happened that night. As I have always said, I cannot recount everything that happened.

“I am looking forward to closing the door on this chapter of my life and beginning a new one.

“I wish nothing but peace to all parties involved.”

Dr. Luke, whose real name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, maintained his innocence in his statement below Kesha’s message.

He said: “While I appreciate Kesha again acknowledging that she cannot recount what happened that night in 2005, I am absolutely certain that nothing happened.

“I never drugged or assaulted her and would never do that to anyone."
