"Learn to Let Go" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Kesha. It is taken from her third studio album, Rainbow (2017). It was released as the third promotional single from the album on July 28, 2017. On November 3, 2017, the song was serviced to BBC Radio as the album's second European single. Digital remixes were released worldwide on November 10, 2017.


Kesha was inspired to write "Learn to Let Go" by one of her friends who went through "the worst childhood imaginable." The track was the first to be written for the album and was also based on Kesha's struggles while making Rainbow.[1] About the song, Kesha told Huffington Post:

[...] The only way to truly evolve is to let the past be the past and move forward with an open heart. If you let your demons haunt you, they will haunt you forever. Learn from your mistakes but don't dwell on them, and if you feel like someone has wronged you, let that be their problem - not yours. As much as our past creates who we are, we can't let it define us or hold us back. And especially if you've been through something hard, and we all have, you can't hold on to resentment because it's like a poison. You have to learn to let go of those bad feelings and move forward.

She has also described the song's title as "one of my mantras over the last few years."[4]
