Kesha has signed with Crush Management, the company confirmed with Billboard. She will be co-managed by Charlie Adelman, Jonathan Daniel and Bob Mclynn.
In December, the pop icon parted ways with longtime manager Jack Rovner and Vector Management.
“Jack Rovner confirms, after 16 years, Kesha and Vector Management have agreed amicably to part ways, with much love and respect,” read a statement shared with Billboard at the time.
The split came on the heels of a busy year for Kesha, who released her fifth album, Gag Order, last May. One month later, in June, Kesha and producer Dr. Luke reached a settlement ending the latter’s years-long lawsuit in which he accused the pop star of defaming him by accusing him of rape. The settlement came one week after a New York court issued a key ruling that would have made it harder for Dr. Luke to win the case.
Gag Order peaked at No. 11 on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales chart. The project was produced by Rick Rubin and featured more experimental “post-pop” production, as defined by Kesha in a previous interview. Most notably, the album fulfilled her contract with Kemosabe — as reported by Variety at the time — which was founded by Dr. Luke and is distributed by RCA Records.
Already this year, Kesha has been teasing new music via clips on Instagram that show the singer back in the studio. She and Lil Nas X have also been teasing a forthcoming collaboration.
At Crush, Kesha joins a star-studded roster that includes Miley Cyrus, Lorde and Green Day.
