Kesha's Rainbow Doco Promises An Emotional Look At Healing
"This record has quite literally saved my life," she says in the trailer.
Hot on the heels of other Apple Music docos like Ed Sheeran's comes Rainbow - The Film, an emotional look at the making of Kesha's latest album, recorded in the wake of her trial against music producer Dr. Luke.
“Sometimes things feel like... like they’re too much to handle. You may be able to pull it together and put on a front in front of others. But inside you’re trapped. Suffocating slowly,” she says in the trailer.
Tweeting today that she was "so excited" to announce the doco's release on August 10, the film offers a look at Kesha's healing process as she recorded Rainbow.
The trailer ends with Kesha sharing that the “record has quite literally saved [her] life”.
Aside from interviews and footage from shows and the recording project, the doco also includes “psychedelic vignettes,” which illustrate both Kesha’s struggles and healing process in an artistic fashion.
Kesha told Billboard via a press release:
"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.
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."
Well, we're ~praying~ that August 10 comes quickly!
