Kesha, Deconstructed


Deconstructed is the second extended play (EP) by American recording artist Kesha, released as a bonus disk with the fan edition of Warrior available only on her website in the United States. It contains five acoustic songs, four of which were written by herself.

Deconstructed contains five acoustic songs, four of which are versions of Kesha's songs, and one being a cover of Dolly Parton's "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You", co-written by Kesha's mother, Pebe Sebert.

The acoustic version of "Die Young" has been described as a form of relaxed psychedelic-beatless pop, sparking controversy among YouTube, Twitter, and Kesha's website. The acoustic version of "The Harold Song" includes relaxed vocals with a sawtooth wave base synthesizer side-chained to a kick drum over a piano synth. Also included is techno-based "Blow", a cover of Dolly Parton's country ballad "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You", and "Supernatural", from Kesha's second album, Warrior. Supernatural (Acoustic) was released through Ke$ha's promotional scavenger hunt for Warrior on her website on November 30, 2012. "Die Young" was released through Kesha's YouTube account and both "Old Flames" and "Supernatural" were released through her website's promotional scavenger hunt.
