Kesha is back and better than ever.
Despite her ongoing legal battles with music producer Dr. Luke, Kesha is back with "Praying," her first single in four years. In a Twitter video Wednesday, Kesha told her fans, "Your support and love and kindness has gotten me through hands-down the hardest time of my entire life."
"Praying" is her Kesha's solo effort since her 2013 Deconstructed EP, and her first single since "True Colors," her 2016 collaboration with Zedd. In an essay for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter published Thursday, Kesha wrote about her comeback and the many setbacks she's faced over the years. With "Praying," she wrote, "I have channeled my feelings of severe hopelessness and depression, I've overcome obstacles, and I have found strength in myself even when it felt out of reach. I've found what I had thought was an unobtainable place of peace. This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you. It's a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone."
