Kesha's third studio album, is currently being referred to as "K3", as the official title has yet to be announced. It is expected to released in 2017. At her show on January 28, 2017, Kesha announced that she has recorded 73 songs for her upcoming album.
While Kesha was at Timberline Knolls, she became desperate to write music. Her boyfriend, Brad, found a toy keyboard for her, and and was able to convince the staff to let her keep it so she could write songs.
In the August 2014 issue of Teen Vogue, Kesha released a statement regarding development on the record.
|“||I’m not going to be making a lullaby jazz record,” she revealed, just in case there’s anybody out there who actually thought that was a possibility. “My music will always have balls until I’m an 85-year-old crazy granny, so don’t be worried about that.||”|
However, do to the ongoing legal battle with her record label, Kesha has been unable to release music.
In the October 2016 issue of The New York Times, we learned that
|“||she had written new songs — 22 of them — and recorded them at her own expense and that they were sitting somewhere waiting to be completed and polished and released. She told me that she wanted to get her story out so people really understood what was going on — that right now, she is the opposite of free.||”|
|“||Kesha was provided with outside producers, and Kesha and Kemosabe had agreed to work with about a dozen of them.||”|
