Today, Kesha drops “Best Day (Angry Birds 2 Remix)” via Kemosabe/RCA Records, encapsulating the carefree spirit of the season and suggesting we take a walk in the sunshine, dance with our friends and embrace the day to the fullest. Featured in The Angry Birds Movie 2 (out August 21st in the Philippines via Sony Pictures Animation in association with Rovio Entertainment), “Best Day (Angry Birds 2 Remix)” is pop music at its most joyful.
With a smooth vocal performance, funk bass line, beachside vibe, and a mantra-like refrain about seizing the moment and expelling negativity, the song captures what continues to make Kesha one of the pop world’s most refreshing stars: her effortlessly exciting and melodious songwriting, her spirited and earnest vocals, and of course her occasional doses of humor.
Of the inspiration for the track, which Kesha wrote with Wrabel, Ryan Lewis (who also produced the song) and Scott Harris, the singer said “I wanted to write a song that would make people feel GOOD. Life can be hard sometimes, and I wanted to write something to listen to in the morning to remind myself to be happy, grateful, positive and remember that I can choose to have the best day of my life (of my life, of my life). Every day. I also think high fives are great and would like to promote high fives whenever possible.”
“With a movie as colorful, fun, bright and hilarious as The Angry Birds Movie 2, we’re thrilled to have a song that gives a happy musical bounce to the movie,” said Spring Aspers, head of Sony Motion Pictures Music Group. “It’s the kind of song that will make you want to get up and dance right there in the theater.”
