Watch Kesha get emotional in ‘Rainbow’

With Kesha’s “come back” album officially out, the singer has decided to give her longtime and dedicated “Animals” a little something extra on this record release day. On Friday (Aug. 11), the pop star unleashed the music video for her new album’s title track, “Rainbow.” Though the song is an emotional one, it’s understandable why the songstress decided to make a simple video to accompany the new tune.

The over-four-minute video begins with a quick shot of the sign where “Rainbow” was record (Capitol Studios in Los Angeles). The shot changes to the inside of the studio where a slew of studio musicians are preparing for their day as Kesha walks in. The pop star is seen greeting her soon-to-be co-workers before the footage changes to her walking the musicians through the harmonies of the song. About 35 seconds into the clip, the footage shifts to Kesha, alone in a sound booth, recording “Rainbow.” Watch the simple, but emotion-filled clip for the new song above.

“Rainbow” will join previously released tracks “Learn to Let Go,” “Woman,” and lead single “Praying” on Kesha’s recently released third album, Rainbow. In support of the new album, Kesha recently announced a massive North American tour set to take place during the fall months. The “Rainbow” tour will officially kick off on Sept. 26 at the Iron City in Birmingham, Alabama and wrap up a little over a month later on Nov. 1 at Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Tickets for the tour are currently available on Kesha’s website here while the complete list of tour dates can been seen here.
