In September, Kesha rallied for equality on her potent new single “Here Comes the Change,” which is set to appear on the soundtrack for On the Basis of Sex, the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic starring Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer. She followed up with a stripped-back live acoustic version of the track on Monday (Nov. 5).
The performance in the clip, which takes place in front of a group of students, allows for the rawness of the lyrics and Kesha’s vocal ability to shine through. “Here comes the change/We’re comin’ of age/This is not a phase/Here comes, here comes, the change,” she belts in the chorus. The star was joined by her friend and fellow writer of the track, Wrabel, for the live show.
On the Basis of Sex opens in limited theaters on Dec. 25. Watch the live acoustic version of “Here Comes the Change” below.
