Vevo, the world’s leading music video network, announces the release of Kesha’s live performance of “Only Love Can Save Us Now” off her new album Gag Order. “Only Love Can Save Us Now” follows Kesha’s Vevo studio performance of “Eat the Acid.” Kesha previously worked with Vevo in 2020 for performances of “Raising Hell” and “Resentment.”
Called “her most daring music yet” by Rolling Stone, Gag Order (produced by Rick Rubin, with Kesha as executive producer), has been self-described as “post-pop” full-bodied collection which flows like a stream-of-consciousness journey through the psychedelic dark depths of the human psyche, followed by basking in the cleansing light when finally reaching the surface.
On “Only Love Can Save Us Now,” Kesha shared, “I have had an overwhelming dichotomy of emotions, oscillating between pain and love. Chaos and love. Fear and love. I wanted my song ‘Only Love Can Save Us Now’ to sonically, lyrically, and emotionally reflect the severity of my mental pendulum swings. The world is so overwhelming sometimes. It requires a moment of surrender. The ludicrosity of life can make you crazy. If anything, IF ANYTHING, can save us, I believe only love can. This song is a desperate and angry prayer. A call to the light when all feels lost.”
