It’s really easy to write off a pop star like Ke$ha (especially because she still insists on using that dang dollar sign). But it’s also really exciting when someone like her takes a step back, strips off all her usual radio pop nonsense and does something genuinely really nice.
This ambient, pretty gorgeous version of “Die Young,” off her upcoming album, Warrior, gives a really startling insight into the person underneath the auto-tune.
And this isn’t the first time Ke$ha’s take a quick foray to genuine musicianship. Last year she released a bafflingly subdued and heartfelt cover of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” which is definitely a must-hear if you missed it.
