Tough girl Ke$ha has revealed that she became a little emotional while recording a cover of a Bob Dylan song for an upcoming Dylan Covers Album to raise funds for Amnesty International.
Ke$ha joined acts like Miley Cyrus and Adele to contribute cover versions of classic Bob Dylan songs for the Amnesty International album 'Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan'.
The singer recorded a stripped back and emotional version of 'Don't think twice it's alright', a major departure from her usual upbeat party tunes.
In a video posted online by Rolling Stone, Ke$ha said of the experience, "Getting a chance to record a Bob Dylan song for Amnesty International was a massive deal for me... I pulled up (music-making software) GarageBand on my laptop and just sang through the song once and by the end of it I was just crying hysterically alone on my bed..."
She added, "I was weeping (during the recording), you can hear it. We just used that recording. We didn't record it into a professional microphone, nothing. (I) tried to sing it a few times but that magic was really in this first, genuine, distraught, emotional take that you guys are going to hear on the record."
We think the recording is incredible! The raw emotion really comes through and the song showcases how strong Ke$ha's voice really is!
