"The theme of this record is magic," she told Seacrest. "I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat. I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions. I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life.”

She wrote songs for Warrior about experiences with supernatural beings and about past lives.

For the album, Ke$ha worked with the likes of Flaming Lips and Iggy Pop, MTV News previously reported, and "explored her rock roots."
