The 'Tik Tok' singer hints at a change of direction as she hopes to explore a different side to her personality.
Ke$ha has revealed that she will be aiming to show a more vulnerable side to herself on her second studio album.
The 'Cannibal' star admitted that she was extremely proud of her debut record 'Animal' and has learnt that she can allow herself to feel more exposed.
Talking to MTV news, the singer said she loved the fact that her first album was "sassy" and "unapologetic" and is ready to try something different.
"I'm really proud of that [Animal], but I have learned over the past three years of doing this that being vulnerable doesn't mean you're weak. I very much want to be seen as a strong woman, but I realize that vulnerability can also be a strength.
"So on my next record, you are going to hear probably a little more of that. I'm not going to make an acoustic, sad entire record. But you might hear a little bit more vulnerability on the next record."
The 'We R Who We R' star is one of a number of artists who have covered Bob Dylan songs for Amnesty International's forthcoming anniversary album and admitted the experience allowed her to explore her personality.
She confessed: "I have realised just from this Dylan cover coming that it can be such a strength and a nice balance to humanise the other side of my personality."
Ke$ha didn't go on to reveal when her new album will be released but is planning to go into the studio with her producer Dr. Luke this month.
"I've been writing but I haven't gone in with [Dr. Luke] yet. He's working on stuff and I'm working on stuff for it. But [to] actually start, we go into the studio in January, early January," she added.
Meanwhile, the singer recently released a remix of her track 'Sleazy' which features vocals by rappers T.I. and Wiz Khalifa.
