Apple Music is going to release a documentary that will feature the popular artist, Kesha. The documentary mainly focuses on how Kesha creates her last album, Rainbow, and includes new footage of Kesha performances.
As reported by Engadget, Rainbow – The Film gives the artist a creative space to explain her struggles. It also highlights the people who stood by her through the rough experiences in her life.
Kesha comments on her experience saying,
“Making Rainbow the album was such a therapeutic process. Being given the opportunity to turn it into a three dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis,” Kesha said in a statement. “I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone.”
Apple Music chose to include Kesha’s documentary because they are trying to expand their following. From documentaries with Major Lazer and Pink, to exclusive live concerts from Taylor Swift, the streaming service has the desire of using its leverage to give artists a platform that will reach a wide-range of audiences. Apple wants to give artists a voice and Apple Music is the perfect way to do so. People will be able to use Apple Music to listen to an artist’s album and have access to exclusive documentaries. They will even have access to interviews of their artistic process. The film is set to release exclusively on Apple Music on August 10 so be ready and be one of the first to learn more about Kesha!
