Ke$ha Releases Acoustic Version of “Die Young” Single

By  | 

While most Ke$ha tracks make you want to cause some sort of destruction (or at least dance the night away — with loads of glitter, obviously), her most recent release is unlike any of the rest. After dropping her “Die Young” music video last week, where she portrays, like, a freaky cult leader, she softens it up and strips it down in her fresh, acoustic version of the track.

So, why the sudden change? Apparently, after her Warrior album hits store shelves this winter, she’ll also be debuting an online-only acoustic EP entitled Deconstructed on December 4. Listen to the slowed-down “Die Young,” then check out some of the lyrics below!

 I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you’re here in my arms
Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young

Young hearts, outta our minds
Runnin’ like we outta time
Wild childs, lookin’ good
Livin’ hard just like we should
Don’t care who’s watching when we tearing it up (you know)
That magic that we got nobody can touch (for sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand, I’ll show you the wild side
Like it’s the last night of our lives
We’ll keep dancing ’til we die
