While the singer had previously been denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with alleged sexual abuser Dr. Luke, it appears all hope is not lost.

Sony opened up about the potential project in a statement, saying:

"Creating a new album takes time, and everyone's goal is to deliver a high quality album consistent with Kesha's past releases. We hope to share exciting new music with Kesha's fans soon."

Since her courtroom loss, the 29-year-old has released a collaboration with Zedd and teased a "f*ck off" duet with an unnamed Grammy-winner.

Plus, her legal team said back in August that the songstress had submitted almost 30 new tracks to Luke's Kemosabe Records.

And, Sony is insisting that everyone involved is working "to keep the process moving forward."

However, the TiK ToK performer's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, isn't entirely convinced that Sony is serious, saying progress hadn't been made until after their most recent court appearance:

And the legal drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke continues…

As we previously reported, the Tik Tok artist asked a NYC judge on Monday for a protective order on her medical records so that they could not be made public amid her legal battle with the music producer and Sony Music. Unsurprisingly, the industry vet's legal team was quick to respond to the blonde beauty's most recent courtroom strategy.

More drama between Kesha and Dr. Luke!

Kesha is not backing down!

As the songstress is currently battling Dr. Luke and Sony Music over sexual assault allegations, she's making sure her private medical records don't ever see the light of day.

On Monday, the 29-year-old filed legal papers to ensure "personal medical records, any diagnoses, or the names of any of her medical providers" can't be made public, as it's previously been revealed she's been ordered by court to hand them over to the music producer.

The over 900 pages of information "including gynecological, psychiatric, and rehabilitation records going back more than ten years" are at risk of being released, according to her lawyer James Pearl. In case you didn't know, Dr. Luke, AKA Lukasz Gottwald, actually rejected the "protective order of confidentiality", and claims he can use her info "without condition."

Yikes!

According to E!, the legal docs cite her reasoning to keep her info confidential:

The battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke marches forward.

On Tuesday, attorneys for the feuding celebs met in New York to hash out a conflict of interest for the judge presiding over their ongoing legal issues.

For those who missed it, in April New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich ruled that Kesha could NOT record outside of her contract with Sony Music. Shirley made the decision even in light of the singer's claims of sexual assault against Luke.

Following the ruling, it was revealed Kornreich is married to a lawyer who works at a firm with ties to Sony. Obviously, lawyers for the 29-year-old were not pleased with the coincidence.

At the time of the questionable reveal, a rep for the judge explained to E! News:

Something smells fishy here…

On Tuesday, it was reported that Kesha may've never stood a chance in her case against Dr. Luke last April as the New York Supreme Court Justice who presided over the legal matter had ties to Sony and RCA. Wait, WHAT??

According to Page Six, judge Shirley Kornreich is married to a lawyer named Ed Kornreich — who just happens to be a partner at Proskauer Rose, a firm who has the record label as a client. Whoa.
