The 'Blow' singer is hoping to bring rock back to pop music with the follow-up to 'Animal' and its repackaged edition 'Cannibal'.

Ke$ha has vowed to resurrect rock and roll with the release of her second studio album later this year.

The 'Tik Tok' singer is expected to launch the follow-up to her 2010 debut 'Animal' sometime in 2012 and admits she has set herself an "ambitious" goal for the record.

"I feel like I don't necessarily agree, but people say that rock and roll is dead, and it is my mission and my goal to resurrect it in the form of my pop music," Ke$ha announced to MTV News.

"That's my goal. We'll see what happens," she teased. "That's a very ambitious and lofty goal, but that's my goal."

Ke$ha also said the past twelve months have been "absolutely crazy" but cited her headlining tour with support acts LMFAO and Spank Rock as her highlight of 2012.

She added: "Money can't buy those moments."

Ke$ha is due to head back into the recording studio with producer Dr. Luke later this month.
