Dr Luke in comeback single

POP star Kesha has taken aim at her former producer Dr Luke in her first solo track since she unsuccessfully sued him for alleged sexual assault and harassment.

The singer has today premiered Praying — which is being released through his own label Kemosabe Records — in which she warns: “We both know all the truth I could tell,” The Sun reports.

In the accompanying video, she lies in a coffin while reading an emotional monologue recalling the pain of her alleged ordeal by begging to die.

She says: “If I am alive. Why? Why?

“If there is a God or whatever, something, somewhere, why have I been abandoned by everyone and everything I’ve ever known, I’ve ever loved? Stranded.

“What is the lesson? What is the point? God give me a sign or I’ve got to give up.

“I can’t do this anymore. Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much.”

The heart-wrenching ballad features on her first album in five years, titled Rainbow, which will be released on August 11.

But it won’t just be her on the record, as it includes a duet with Dolly Parton on her 1980 tune Old Flames Can’t Hold A Candle To You and two collaborations with Eagles Of Death Metal.

The equally emotional lyrics to the song appear to be directed at Dr. Luke, who was behind her biggest hits including Tik Tok and We R Who We R.

Speaking at a secret event in London on Tuesday attended by The Sun’s Bizarre column, she said: “Obviously my first song is a ballad which is always risky for a pop singer. But hopefully the truth in the message will shine through.”
