WASHINGTON, April 28 (UPI) -- Kesha's first single since 2013, "True Colors," has been released a day ahead of its publicized debut date.

A collaboration with EDM artist Zedd -- who clarified Wednesday the song was developed with permission from Dr. Luke's Kemosabe and RCA amid a nasty court battle -- "True Colors" marks Kesha's return to the music sphere.

The release comes just one day after Kesha shared a photo of herself in a recording studio, which she captioned: "it's a miracle when someone gives you a chance at finding your voice again with no reason other than that he is a [expletive] beautiful person with a heart of gold."

The release comes three years after the pop star's most recent song, "Timber," and almost two years since suing her longtime producer, Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald. Kesha took to the court to attempt to exit her binding contract with the music maker, but was denied permission earlier this year.

Zedd, a star DJ, provided confirmation "True Colors" was not in violation of contractual agreements, stating on Twitter Dr. Luke's company allowed it. "Thanks for the clarification @Zedd," Dr. Luke tweeted in response Wednesday.

The song will be available for purchase and streaming Friday, Rolling Stone confirmed.
