Ke$ha told Rolling Stone: "I didn't want this to sound like a pop version of a Bob Dylan song. That's the last thing I wanted this to sound like."

The 24-year-old planned to record a different interpretation of the song, which dealt with a female suicide note.

However, the lyrics took on a personal meaning for the performer as she became emotional while singing in the recording booth.

"There were particular lyrics in the song that you can just tell, once they came out of my mouth – the emotion caught up with me and I just started weeping," she explained.

"It's something that I didn't plan on, that wasn't contrived at all. It just sort of happened. It seemed like a suicide note to the love of my life and to my former life. Because everything in my life has changed so much."

She added: "And it went from being this ambiguous interpretation – this idea we had – to it being so completely relevant to everything I'm going through."

The full album will also include covers by Adele, Miley Cyrus, Sinead O'Connor and Aerosmith's Joe Perry.

Chimes of Freedom is available to pre-order now through Amnesty International's official website.
