While Ke$ha’s new single “Die Young” makes the rounds on Tokyo subways, her producer shored up some impressive new details for her new album. Warrior drops December 4, and as Dr. Luke told MTV, it will be packed to the hilt with collaborations. The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas and Fabrizio Moretti both make appearances, along with fellow garage-rocker Patrick Carney. The Black Key is apparently a good friend of Ke$ha’s (enough for Dr. Luke to label the pair “homeys”), having known each other from her Nashville days.
While the producer squashed rumors that Rihanna would show up on the new album, he did confirm that the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne would be doing a song with the pop superstar. Even Iggy Pop shows up, lending his gravelly baritone to a selection.
Dr. Luke also claimed the record is more raw than Animal, with less auto-tune this time around to show off her “stellar voice.” The collaboration list seems to confirm this more basic approach, though time will tell. [Via: The Future Heart]
