Deconstructed is the second extended play by American recording artist Ke$ha, scheduled to be released on December 4, 2012, by RCA Records. It is available exclusively from Ke$ha's website, packaged with the fan edition of her upcoming second studio album, Warrior. It contains five acoustic songs.

Background and development

Deconstructed contains five acoustic songs, four of which are versions of Ke$ha's songs, and one being a cover of Dolly Parton's "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You", co-written by Ke$ha's mother, Pebe Sebert.

The acoustic version of "Die Young" has been described as a form of relaxed psychedelic-beatless pop, sparking controversy among YouTube, Twitter, and Ke$ha's website. The acoustic version of "The Harold Song" includes relaxed vocals with a sawtooth wave base synthesizer side-chained to a kick drum over a piano synth. Also included is techno-based "Blow", a cover of Dolly Parton's country ballad "Old Flames", and "Supernatural", from Ke$ha's second album, Warrior.

Release

  • "Die Young" was released through Kesha's YouTube account.
  • "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You" was released through Ke$ha's official site promotional scavenger hunt.
