The lyric video of Kesha's latest song 'Here Comes the Change' is out and it depicts protesters and activists fighting for a better world.
The powerful anthem calling for equality also features in the upcoming film 'On the Basis of Sex', starring Felicity Jones as current US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her younger years. The spirited film, which follows Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the US Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination, will premiere on December 25 in line with Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
Watch the video below:
'Here Comes The Change', which echoes the sentiments of the film, has lyrics (written by Kesha with Drew Pearson and Wrabel specifically for the film) that meditate on the battle for universal equality combined with Kesha’s wildly passionate vocal delivery (a highlight of her Grammy-nominated latest album ‘Rainbow’),
Moved by the power of the song and the film, renowned artist and social activist Shepard Fairey created the single art for 'Here Comes The Change.'
Kesha also joined forces with non-profit organization HeadCount on the lyric video to encourage fans to vote.
In an essay for Refinery 29, Kesha wrote about the message of equality and empowerment echoed in both the film and her new song, saying “Together we can prove to our leaders and the rest of the world that we will not tolerate challenges to equality and freedom in our country.”
"I greatly admire Kesha's artistry and commitment to activism," said Mimi Leder, director of On the Basis of Sex. "I wanted her to write this song because her passionate voice and immense talent magnify the social justice imperatives Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to fight for every day. It was important to both of us that this song be not only an anthem to all that Ruth Bader Ginsburg achieved, but also a rallying cry for how much more change is yet to come."
