Pop star Ke$Ha has credited an action-packed vacation with helping her to dream up a magical theme for her new record.
The TiK ToK hitmaker is set to release her second album, Warrior, two years after shooting to fame with her party anthem-packed debut, Animal.
The singer reveals her new material is inspired by a soul-searching quest around the world, in which she dived with killer sharks and helped to care for captive lion cubs.
She tells Ryan Seacrest's Kiis-Fm radio show, "The theme of this record is magic. I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat. I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions. I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotised, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life."
