Kesha is doing an amazing job teasing her new song album Gag Order and she just dropped another song from this record. She gets personal in her new single “Only Love Can Save Us Now”, which reflects the severity of her “mental pendulum swings.”

Kesha teased this song by sharing a photo that shows her holding a Gag Order vinyl record on social media. The photo was accompanied by a lengthy caption, where she explained that she wanted this song to sonically, lyrically, and emotionally reflect the overwhelming dichotomy of different emotions, oscillating between pain, chaos, fear, and love.

“The world is so overwhelming sometimes. It requires a moment of surrender. The ludicrosity of life can make you crazy. If anything, IF ANYTHING, can save us, I believe only love can. This song is a desperate and angry prayer. A call to the light when all feels lost,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Only Love Can Save Us Now” was released as the latest single from Kesha’s upcoming fifth studio album, and it was preceded by the dual singles “Eat the Acid” and “Fine Line”. Gag Order will hit the shelves on May 19, and Kesha said it will explore much darker themes than her previous records, such as emotional exploitation and the battle for the truth.
