Singer reveals new direction for follow-up to 'Animal'

Ke$ha has said that her new album, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Animal’, will be influenced by “’70s rock’n’roll”.

Speaking to MTV, the singer said that she wanted to capture the vibe of that decade.

She said: “For the next album, I’ve been working on writing on the road, but as far as a sound, I just know it’s gonna be balls-out, irreverent rock’n’roll.”

The singer continued: “I’ve been pretty much in this ’70s rock and roll kick and I want to capture some of the true essence of what rock’n’roll is, and that’s just irreverence and sexiness and fun and not giving a fuck, so we’ll definitely put a bit of rock’n’roll in it.”

She also hinted that she was looking for a ’70s duet partner for the new project, adding: “I really would love to connect with one of my idols, I mean, that’s my dream. I’m working on it.”

The singer also recently admitted to Spin that she wore a necklace made up of her crushed-up placenta.

She said: “According to certain religions, it gives you a sixth sense.”
