After radio stations decided to pull Ke$ha's "Die Young" from rotation following the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT, she responded with a string of tweets that she has since cleared up in a statement on her website.
Ke$ha will be releasing her new album, Warrior, on December 4th. The first single entitled "Die Young" will hit digital outlets on September 25th and was written by Nate Ruess of fun. and Dr. Luke. You can check out a teaser for the song in the replies.
There's a video in the replies where Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips describes the new blood-filled vinyl pressing of The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. Only 10 of these records are being made and they include real-life blood from Ke$ha, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), a couple members of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Chris Martin (Coldplay). Each of the vinyl cost $2,500 and 100 percent of the profits will be donated to the Oklahoma Humane Society and the Academy of Contemporary Music.
