At long last, Kesha has released her new single.

The singer shared the video for her triumphant new track "Praying" on Thursday after having teased new music this week.

"I had to learn how to fight for myself / And we both know all the truth I could tell," she sings, alluding rather candidly to the struggles of the past few years. The song is the first preview of her long-awaited new album Rainbow, which will be released Aug. 11.

As we previously mentioned, "Praying" was co-written with Ryan Lewis (Macklemore collaborator), but the album itself will also feature Eagles of Death Metal on two songs as well as Dolly Parton, who actually appears on Kesha's cover of Parton's "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You."

Although Kesha collaborated with Zedd on last year's "True Colors," her last full-length, Warrior, arrived back in 2012. This marks her first solo material since her ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke over claims of sexual assault.

The video for "Praying," which was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, can be seen below.
