UPDATE: Kesha’s much-anticipated feature on Zedd’s “True Colors” landed online ahead of schedule, and it’s powerful. The vocals are emotionally charged, singing lyrics like “I’ve escaped my capture and I have no master” and “I won’t apologize for the fire in my eyes.”
If you’re wondering whether Kesha is going behind Sony/Kemosabe Record’s back… Zedd explains.
Thanks for the clarification @Zedd …

Zedd kept his promise.
After a judge denied Kesha’s injunction to record outside of Sony and away from Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records, producer Zedd shot Kesha a Tweet saying he’d be willing to work with her when the time is right, writing “very very sorry to hear about the whole situation. I’ll be happy to produce a song for you if you want my help.”
Kesha took Zedd up on his offer.
“I just read an article about [the case], literally right before I made the tweet because I didn’t know her personally,” Zedd told ETonline at the time. “I thought sending a tweet was kind of the best way to get in touch with her. The only thing I can really do to help is produce songs and that’s what I offered,” he added.
His message was heard loud and clear by Kesha’s team, who reached out to Zedd to confirm the offer was legit.
“All I know is that she’s in a very rough position and if there’s anything I can ever do to help I’ll always be happy to do that.”
Cut to a couple of weeks later, Kesha and Zedd collaborated on stage together at Coachella, and are now crafting new tunes for an untitled project most likely for Kesha’s much-anticipated return. Days later, Zedd announced he and Kesha will drop their a cover of their song “True Colors,” which they performed at Coachella two weekends ago, on Friday (April 29)!

Hours later, Kesha posted a response on Instagram, saying “it’s a miracle when someone gives you a chance at finding your voice again with no reason other than that he is a fucking beautiful person with a heart of gold @zedd #truecolors”
