Kesha goes sci-fi LGBTQ anthem Hymn

Hymn is the next single taken from Kesha’s critically-acclaimed album, Rainbow. 

American pop princess Kesha has unveiled a sci-fi themed video for her LGBTQ anthem, Hymn.

The video for Hymn sees Kesha in the backseat of a car as she’s driven by an invisible force. Throughout the clip, several outcasts unexpectedly depart from their location to meet Kesha in the middle of the highway, before the car is lifted into space.

The song has been hailed as an LGBTQ anthem due to its lyrical content. Fans have resonated with lyrics such as, “This is a hymn for the hymnless, kids with no religion. Yeah, we keep on sinning, yeah, we keep on singing.

“I know that I’m perfect, even though I’m fucked up. Hymn for the hymnless, don’t need no forgiveness.”

Kesha’s latest album – Rainbow – debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 last year. It received widespread critical acclaim, and resulted in the star receiving her first ever Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album.

The album’s lead single, Praying, also received a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.

Earlier this year, Kesha also dropped the music video for her queer rendition of Janis Joplin’s classic love song, I Need a Man to Love.

The American superstar re-recorded the track for Universal Love, an EP intending to provide wedding songs for same-sex couples. Bob Dylan, St. Vincent, Valerie June, Kele Okereke and Benjamin Gibbard also contributed LGBTQ anthems to the EP.

In the video for I Need a Woman to Love, Kesha officiates the wedding of a real-life lesbian couple.

“I’m here today, in Vegas, to marry Dani and Linsday. This’ll be my third same-sex marriage,” said Kesha. “The fact that I would just play a show, and there’d be two people there that I’ve never met, and now I’m marrying them today, it’s just kind of a headfuck. But, it’s amazing.”
