SINGLE REVIEW: Kesha – Here Comes The Change 

The return of Kesha in 2017 was one of pop music’s boldest and most empowering moments. Over the past year the singer-songwriter has been travelling the world and delivering her message of empowerment, justice and equal rights to her legion of fans. Whilst she is about to kick off the final leg of her world tour in Australia she’s just dropped a new track which serves as the lead single from the ‘On The Basis Of Sex’ Soundtrack. The forthcoming biographical drama film looks at the life of supreme court justice Ruth Bader Gingsburg. And ‘Here Comes The Change’ perfectly channels the empowering message of equality that the film explores. On this stripped back, guitar led track Kesha encourages people to be apart of the conversation of politics and change. She also explains why change and growth is personally important to her too. “One day I’ll be gone, the world will keep turning. I hope I leave this place better than I found it”. The guitar driven track adds in sweet harmonica along with a gospel inspired hook which adds to the 60’s protest production styling. This song is quite simple and whilst it is beautiful it is also a little underwhelming. I expected a bigger hook with soaring vocals to take this song to a different level. It just feel a little safe for her. “This is not a phase, here comes, her comes the change”.
