Today in New Music: Ke$ha Accepts Her Mortality, Taylor Swift Still Hates Her Ex

Last night while you were sleeping, all the popular music girls got together and leaked their new songs online.  Ke$ha! Taylor! Lana! Your Tuesday Morning Dance Party is about to take some weird and melancholy turns.

Ke$ha - "Die Young"
For a Ke$ha song, this is less headache-y than usual: The synths are still there, and the boozy half-rapping, but Our Lady of the $ Sign actually sings for a majority of the song (and remember: she's secretly pretty good). Bonus: There are handclap-y sounds. How can you be mad at handclaps?

Taylor Swift - "Begin Again"
"Took a deep breath in the mirror / he didn't like it when I wore high heels / But I do."  This one is almost definitely about Jake Gyllenhaal (check the height), and he sounds like a jerk.

Lana Del Rey - "Ride"
Lana is re-releasing Born to Die, but with eight new songs. She is still calling men who are not her father "Daddy."
