Kesha Releases Stripped Down Version of ‘Supernatural’
Kesha is determined to shut up all her detractors who say she can’t sing without Auto-Tune. The tenacious Tennessee native released the ‘Deconstructed’ rendition of ‘Supernatural,’ stripping away much of the technological touches from the original to almost completely rework the track.
The song, Kesha’s ode to having intimate relations with the undead, sounds more romantic than raunchy when the electronic elements are removed. Her voice have a natural lilt to them that may, at times, make her sound more Auto-Tuned than she actually is — so many of Kesha’s critics may have been overestimating her use of the tool.
Though the original ‘Supernatural’ is a dance ditty, it becomes a midtempo ballad when the production is removed. K-Dollar Sign took a similar approach with her deconstructed version of ‘Die Young,’ which transformed from a party anthem into almost a lullaby.
‘Deconstructed‘ boasts a handful of Kesha tunes without the heavy production for which she’s best known. She also has a cover of ‘Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You,’ a song originally written by her own mom, Pebe Sebert, and made famous by Dolly Parton.
