Dr Luke’s been chatting away about the new Ke$ha album, ‘Warrior’, and specifically the people she has and hasn’t worked with on it.
“I’m going to tell you right now: There’s no Rihanna,” he confirmed to MTV. “I don’t know where that came from. I’ve seen it all over the place, but there’s definitely not a Rihanna song on it.”
Oh well. Still, we’re sure there’s bound to be an amazing roster of pop talent involved, right?
“Iggy Pop is on the record, Patrick [Carney] from the Black Keys is on it, another sick drummer we have is Fabrizio Moretti from the Strokes on it and [frontman] Julian Casablancas plays on some stuff and Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips did a song.”
He went on to say that the album is “uptempo” and “raw” and doesn’t have “a whole lot of production” on it.
“She’s singing songs with no doubles on it from the beginning to the end of the song, which you never hear in music anymore. She has a stellar voice, and it’s funny that a lot of people haven’t realized that, but they will now, for sure,” he concluded.
‘Warrior’ is out on December 4 but isn’t finished yet apparently.
