Kesha Wrote 'Rainbow' in One Hour a Day During Rehab After Begging for a Keyboard

The process led her on a journey of self-discovery and healing after being embroiled in lawsuits with producer Dr. Luke, preventing her from releasing new music until now.

“I was in a very dark place,” Kesha wrote. “I was alone and scared in rehab for an eating disorder that had gotten wildly out of control. I wasn’t allowed to work or have any technology – no phone, no computer, no texting, no social media. At first, they wouldn’t let me have any kind of instrument either.”

“I begged them to let me have a keyboard – even a toy keyboard,” she continued. “I had so many emotions, and I didn’t know how else to deal with them. Writing songs is the only way I know how to process things. I was relentless. I remember I begged and begged, until they finally agreed I could have a keyboard for one hour a day. … My boyfriend Brad sent me his keyboard and some crappy headphones that were falling apart. Every day I sat there on the floor and played.”
