Kesha Journeys Through Her Own History in ‘Learn to Let Go’ Video

Kesha - ‘Learn to Let Go’ Video
Kesha has premiered yet another music video. This time the singer unveiled the visuals for Learn to Let Go — the third advance track from her upcoming album Rainbow, out onAugust 11th on Kemosabe Records/RCA Records. Learn to Let Go has become one of the singer's mantras and follows previously released songs Praying and Woman.

The moving music video was directed by Isaac Ravishankara, and shows Kesha watching home videos of her childhood shot by her aunt. As the video cuts back and forth from footage of her as a child to her adult self, Kesha reveals the woman that little girl would grow up to be — and affirms that child inside. You could call Learn to Let Go a video Kesha has been preparing her entire life to make. Watch it below!


Learn to Let Go finds Kesha choosing redemption over resentment, embracing the past without being defined by it as she sings, "The past can't haunt me if I don't let it/Live and learn and never forget it." Kesha wrote the song with Stuart Crichton and her mother, Pebe Sebert, and Crichton produced the track with Ricky Reed. The song connects Kesha to her earlier hits with her signature swaggering rapid-fire vocal delivery and a celebratory chorus while combining it with the organic sonic landscape of live instrumentation which is a signature sound of the forthcoming Rainbow. I'm so happy to have Kesha back strong and with lots of positivity!

Kesha writes about the song's inspiration and creation in an essay appearing in HuffPost and also addresses how the song's themes inform Rainbow. She writes,
This song, and the ideas behind it, were a big part of this record. This idea of learning to let the negative things go has been extremely helpful for me over the last few years and I hope it resonates with others.
