KESHA CELEBRATES ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF ‘RAINBOW’ ALBUM WITH NEW APPLE MUSIC DOCUMENTARY ON AUGUST 10
On August 10, Kesha will celebrate the one-year anniversary of her two-time Grammy-nominated album ‘Rainbow’ by releasing a behind-the-scenes documentary exclusively on Apple Music. Directed by Kesha along with her brother Lagan Sebert and Kevin Hayden, and produced by Magic Seed Productions, Rainbow – The Film details the creation of the album and echoes her most recent LP’s messages of self-love, perseverance and strength.
“Making ‘Rainbow’ the album was such a therapeutic process and given the opportunity to turn it into a three dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis,” said Kesha. “I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone”
Rainbow – The Film mixes vérité documentary with psychedelic vignettes to share the story of Kesha’s battle with inner demons and real life struggles. An inspiring story of redemption meditating on how some of life’s darkest setbacks can be transformed into strength and healing, the film features a plethora of previously unseen footage chronicling Kesha’s joy playing rock clubs and dive bars around the country, writing and recording ‘Rainbow’, preparing for her daunting yet triumphant performance at this year’s GRAMMY Awards and more.

Kesha’s latest album ‘Rainbow’, called “an artistic feat” by Entertainment Weekly and “the best music of her career” by Rolling Stone, marks a new beginning for Kesha. ‘Rainbow’ earned Kesha the first GRAMMY nominations of her career earlier this year, with ’Rainbow’ up for Best Pop Vocal Album and “Praying” getting a nod for Best Pop Solo Performance. She was recently named one of Time Magazine’s Time 100, their annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
