Kesha is getting ready to release her new album, 'Warrior,' in December, and now she's dishing on the inspiration behind the sophomore LP.

In an interview with RyanSeacrest.com, the 25-year-old revealed that she went on a soul-searching trip that had a major impact on her record. "The theme of this record is magic. I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat," she explained. "I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions. I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life."

Kesha just released her lead single, 'Die Young,' but opened up about another song on the album called 'Supernatural,' which was written about an intimate encounter with a ghost. "It’s about experiences with the supernatural…but in a sexy way," she said. "Well, I don’t know his name! He was a ghost. It was just like … I had a couple experiences with the supernatural. I’m very open to it."

In a press release, the singer made sure to express her enthusiasm about her forthcoming release, explaining that she's been hard at work on the album for one year. "This process has been long and intense and I couldn’t be more stoked to share this music," she added. "I hope with 'Warrior' my fans get to know me in a much more raw and vulnerable way.” 'Warrior' will be released on Dec. 4.
