Ke$ha Is Channeling ‘Sexiness’ Of ’70s Rock For New Album

Glitter-heavy pop star tells MTV News she’s going for ‘balls-out, irreverent rock and roll.’
By James Montgomery, with reporting by Matt Elias

<P><a href=”/music/artist/_kesha_/artist.jhtml”>Ke$ ha</a>’s already got the face paint down pat, and, during recent live sets, she’s even taken to <a href=”http://www.popeater.com/2011/03/17/kesha-drinks-blood-during-performance” target=”_blank”>guzzling blood</a> out of a human heart, so it should come as no surprise that, on her upcoming album, the pop star is taking things back to the most <i>theatrical</i> era of rock: the prop-heavy, arena-spanning heyday of the 1970s. </P><P> </P><P>Ke$ h revealed her plans over the weekend in Los Angeles, on the red carpet of KIIS FM’s annual <a href=”/news/articles/1663909/wango-tango-britney-spears-kesha.jhtml”>Wango Tango</a> concert, where she told MTV News that the follow-up to her breakout <i>Animal</i> album (and, we suppose, <a href=”/news/articles/1652714/kehas-cannibal-a-cheat-sheet.jhtml”><i>Cannibal</i></a> too) would be heavy on hard riffs and light on pretty much <i>everything</i> else. </P><P> </P><P></p><div class=”player-placeholder right” title=”Ke$ ha Says New Album Will Be ‘ Balls-Out, Irreverent Rock'” id=”vid:652875″ width=”240″ height=”211″></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>”The next album … I’ve been working on writing on the road, but as far as a sound, I just know it’s gonna be balls-out, irreverent rock and roll,” she said. “I’ve been pretty much in this ’70s rock and roll kick and I just want to capture some of the true essence of what rock and roll is, and that’s just irreverence and sexiness and fun and not giving a f—, so we’ll definitely put a bit of rock and roll in it.” </P><P> </P><P>So, does that mean that fans can expect the likes of Alice Cooper or Peter Frampton to show up on her new album? Perhaps. Because while Ke$ ha’s new album is still a ways off, she’s already begun calling in favors, hoping to line up a killer collabo for the new disc. </P><P> </P><P>”I’m trying, trust me,” she laughed. “I really would love to connect with one of my idols, I mean, that’s my dream. I’m working on it.” </P><P> </P><P><i>What do you think of Ke$ ha going rock for her next album? Tell us in the comments!</i></p>

Britney Spears Has ‘Crazy’ Cameo On will.i.am’s Album?

Black Eyed Peas mastermind teases a collabo with the pop princess on #willpower, set for 2012 release.

By Jocelyn Vena

<P>In a sea of A-list contributions for will.i.am’s forthcoming solo album, the Black Eyed Peas mastermind recently dropped one name that will really get pop fans excited. Speaking with <a href=”http://www.capitalfm.com/artists/william/news/britney-spears-alicia-keys-new-album/” target=”_blank”>Capital FM</a>, will teased that his <i>Femme Fatale</i> collaborator Britney Spears will make an appearance on the album, dubbed <i>#willpower.</i>
</P><P>
</P><P></p><div class=”player-placeholder right” title=”Britney Hits The Studio With will.i.am” id=”vid:638813″ width=”240″ height=”211″></div><p>
</P><P>
</P><P>”I have a song with Alicia Keys &#8212; me, Alicia and Swedish House Mafia. I have a song with the Beats, which is pretty grand. Me and Shakira have been trying to finish the stuff we started, and me and Britney is really crazy,” he said. “So we got a song with me, LMFAO and Eva Simons, a song with me and Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz &#8212; I got a whole other bunch of collaborations.”
</P><P>
</P><P>Spears and will.i.am last worked together on “Big Fat Bass,” a spacey, grinding party tune complete with clapping noises and some rapping from will himself. Their recording session was featured on the MTV special <a href=”/news/articles/1660830/britney-spears-femme-fatale-previews.jhtml”>”I Am the Femme Fatale.”</a> There’s been no word yet from will’s camp about the song and whether this is a new track or if he will be including “Big Fat Bass” on the album.
</P><P>
</P><P>The rapper/producer’s love for Brit is hardly anything new: He <a href=”/news/articles/1662289/britney-spears-will-i-am-big-fat-bass.jhtml”>gushed to MTV News about the pop princess</a> months after they recorded together. “[I discovered] her love for music. I never seen anyone, like, come alive, full of excitement and giggling and laughing behind the mic,” will recalled to MTV News. “She was like a little kid when she was recording the song, and it just brought the whole atmosphere, it changed the whole atmosphere when someone really loves music. So it was great working with her.”
</P><P>
</P><P>His latest single, “T.H.E (The Hardest Ever),” featuring Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger, dropped late last year. <i>#willpower,</i> which also features “X Factor” judge Nicole Scherzinger, will be released later this year.
</P><P>

Robert Plant And Alison Krauss Win Grammy Album Of The Year

Raising Sand, from Led Zeppelin vet and bluegrass superstar, wins five Grammys on Sunday night.
By James Montgomery with MTV News staff

<P>”I’m bewildered,” <a href=”/music/artist/plant_robert/artist.jhtml”>Robert Plant</a> said onstage as he accepted the <MTVNLINK type=”news” id=”1604580″>Grammy Album of the Year award</MTVNLINK> with <a href=”/music/artist/krauss_alison/artist.jhtml”>Alison Krauss</a> on Sunday night. “In the old days we would have called this selling out, but it’s a good way to spend a Sunday.” </P><P> </P><P>He was probably one of the few who were surprised, because <i>Raising Sand,</i> which won five trophies at Sunday night’s show, is in many ways the perfect <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/news/grammys/”>Grammy</a> album. It features two respected veterans, a critically lauded producer, some sandpaper-and-velvet vocals and a baker’s dozen of time-tested standards.</p><div style=”margin: 0px 10px 10px 0px; float: left;”><embed src=”http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:338316″ width=”256″ height=”223″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” flashVars=”configParams=instance%3Dnews%26vid%3D338316″ allowFullScreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” base=”.”></embed></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>You’re probably familiar with Robert Plant from his <a href=”/music/artist/led_zeppelin/artist.jhtml”>Led Zeppelin</a> days, and you might be aware of producer T-Bone Burnett’s work on the “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack (it won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2002). And if you don’t know who Alison Krauss is, she possesses a haunting set of pipes and is one of the meanest fiddle players in the world. Oh, and she’s won 21 Grammys, more than any other female artist and the seventh-most in history. </P><P> </P><P>Really, she’s the key to <i>Sand</i>’s success, and not just because of her voice (or her fiddle playing). She and Plant first met in 2004, at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tribute to legendary bluesman Leadbelly, and the former Zeppelin man was amazed by her knowledge of American Roots music &#8212; so much so that they began kicking around the idea of recording an album together. Three years later, <i>Sand</i> was released. </P><P> </P><P>And while Plant possesses the more famous voice, the album’s finest moments radiate from Krauss. Whether she’s getting bluesy on Little Milton’s “Let Your Loss Be Your Lesson” or entwining with Plant’s husky voice on songs like “Please Read the Letter” and Roly Salley’s winsome “Killing the Blues,” she more than carries her end of the bargain. </P><P> </P><P>And perhaps that’s also due to producer Burnett, who handpicked the 13 songs the duo cover on <i>Sand.</i> His arrangements are sparse &#8212; giving the two voices ample room to breathe &#8212; yet dense, warm and crackling at the same time. It’s a testament to his work that he’s often given just as much billing as Plant and Krauss on the project … and it’s certainly justified. </P><P> </P><P>To date, <i>Sand</i> has sold more than 1 million copies, heaped tons of acclaim and actually earned a Grammy last year &#8212; “Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)” took home the award for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. </P><P> </P><P>One expert was surprised not by the album’s success, but by the fact that it’s actually quite a good album. </P><P> </P><P>”At first, the album seemed like a vanity project. … Two names, clearly a one-off record, didn’t have to be any good, you know?” <i>New York Times</i> music critic Jon Caramanica said. “Led Zeppelin fans would buy it because of Robert Plant, Alison Krauss would get a check. But it actually turned out to be a really thoughtful, really <i>good</i> record. So when you combine all that with the fact that the Grammys love to lionize one of their own, I could really see it taking home some awards.” </P><P></p>
