Kesha Relives Her Childhood and Releases Her Demons in ‘Learn to Let Go': Watch

Kesha Learn to Let Go
Kesha via Vevo

Kesha goes back in time in her euphoric new video for “Learn To Let Go,” a stomping, twangy pop-rock anthem about letting go of the past—or at least the traumatic parts holding you back.

Been a prisoner of the past / Had a bitterness when I looked back / Was telling everyone it’s not that bad / ‘Til all my s— hit the fan,” she belts at one point. The “Praying” pop star also seems to reference her troubled relationship with producer Dr. Luke in one verse, singing, “Had a boogeyman under my bed / Putting crazy thoughts inside my head / Always whispering, ‘It’s all your fault’ / He was telling me ‘No, you’re not that strong.'”

In the clip, which finds Kesha living out moments from her childhood through an old home video VHS tape, she jumps atop a large floral-pattern bed, stumbles upon a vintage Christmas tree from holidays past and takes part in a kitsch puppet show, each scene paralleling a real moment from her youth in the early ’90s.

It’s a poignant, joyful tune featuring an equally poignant, joyful video, and it perfectly captures the feelings of hope and catharsis that come with releasing one’s demons and moving forward.
