This morning animal lover Ke$ha debuted her new song Die Young on the radio. It’s great for dancing, partying, and was inspired, in part, by the singer’s work with rescued baby lions.

Ke$ha told Ryan Seacrest this morning about the song off the album “Warrior”, “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 hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life.”

There certainly is something about being alone in nature that allows you to pull away from the noise and clutter of the human world. Magic is a good word to describe it.

From boycotting the circus to speaking out against the clubbing of baby seals, Ke$ha has long been a friend to animals. We’re not surprised that the inspiration for her latest track comes straight from the animal kingdom to be delivered to her human fans, or as she calls them, animals.

We hope she posts pictures of her work rehabilitating baby lions. That’s a dose of cuteness that will improve any day.
