It's no secret that we love us some Kesha. When she announced her new single at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet pre-show, we were pretty freakin' excited! Here's the scoop.

In an interview with MTV, K-Dollar Sign dished, "My first single is called 'Die Young,' and it'll be out this month." Color us stoked! Kesha looked absolutely stunning with glowing makeup, her blonde Skrillex-style do swept to the side softly and wearing a gown that she described as making her look "naked with black lace covering my bits."

Kesha also told red carpet host James Montgomery about her friendship with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. "We're really close now," she said of her collaborator.

The 'Blow' singer is also working with Dr. Luke, who talked up her sophomore album recently, as well as Iggy Pop, with whom Kesha was photographed in the studio, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, uberproducer Max Martin and fun. singer Nate Ruess. Kesha has said this album is more stripped-down and much more important to her than anything she's ever done.

"About 90 percent of the time, I don’t give a f---. But I give so many f----s about this album," Kesha said. "Some people weren’t sure if I could sing. On this record, I said 'Let's leave the tricks to a minimum and let me wail.'"
