High Road is the new album from the modern pop icon Kesha, and the follow up to her 2017 GRAMMY-nominated album Rainbow.
High Road finds Kesha on a joyful musical journey of self-discovery. The album is filled with emotional and stylistic range, and is a blend of heavenly highs and emotional depths. Kesha’s swagger is front and center, with frisky, rap-based tracks that show-off her skills as a lyrical spitfire, and also a folkier side that emerges. With a dream-pop ode to a best friendship, a reflective ballad about growing up without a father, and plenty of lust and laughter, High Road traverses the emotional spectrum.
For High Road, Kesha enlisted an eclectic roster of collaborators/songwriters/producers including John Hill, Dan Reynolds, Stuart Crichton, Jeff Bhasker, Drew Pearson, Brian Wilson, Sturgill Simpson, Nate Ruess, Justin Tranter, Stint, Wrabel, and Pebe Sebert, among others.
Kesha has sold more than 14 million total album equivalents worldwide, and has had 9 Top 10 hits on The Billboard Hot 100, including four #1 singles at Top 40 Radio.

"Black Hole Rainbow” was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs) in his iconic Downtown LA studio, with additional album production from Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, HAIM). Shortly after wrapping the recording, Devon and a team from Capitol embarked on a trip to South Africa to grasp the creative vision for the new record. One which you can see very clearly through the imagery associated with the roll out. “Get Out and Get It” was the first single and music video to be release, landing in the top 15 at AAA radio. “Even Though It Hurts” followed not long after with a visualizer and saw a lot of love from fans and critics alike. The upcoming record named “Black Hold Rainbow” will undoubtedly be one of the best debuts in 2020.

Domino are extremely proud to present Seeking Thrills, the second LP from Georgia. Inspired by the Chicago House and Detroit Techno of the early 80s, Seeking Thrills is a sonic feat of exploration and excellence, with textures that reflect Georgia’s background in ethnic musicology, and hours upon hours spent rifling through records. Feminine without being saccharine, Georgia’s deep, brooding reflections carry us through euphoria, heartache and melancholy but always with the memory of the good times.
