Ke$ha joins the quick-turnaround EP trend with 'Cannibal'

October 13, 2010 |  2:25 pm


With the Jack Daniels barely yet rinsed from her toothbrush, Ke$ha is following her fellow purveyor of ravey synthpop in releasing a quick-followup EP to her January debut album, "Animal."

"Cannibal," available as a standalone record and as part of a deluxe reissue of "Animal" on Nov. 22, clocks in at eight new songs with production work by longtime mentor Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Max Martin and, intriguingly, "A Milli" producer Bangladesh. "Cannibal's" first single, the typographically challenging "We R Who We R," will make the rounds to radio Thursday, just in time for any weekend plans to get raked and wake up on an elephant in the desert.
