Kesha is back to the recording studio for the first time since refusing to work with producer Dr. Luke, whom she accuses of sexually and mentally abusing her.
The singer has been unwilling to record for more than a year due to her legal battle with Dr. Luke and his Kemosabe label under Sony, with which she has been locked in a multi-record contract.
Earlier this month, a judge denied Kesha’s request to be released from that contract, ruling that doing so would cause irreparable harm to the record labels. But Sony appears to be keeping its promise to allow the "Tik Tok" singer to work with other producers.
Kesha laid down tracks with DJ/producer Zedd at his studio this week after recording "True Colors" for his new album and performing with him at Coachella.
The new work, Zedd said on Twitter, was done with the permission of Kemosabe and Sony.
