Pink is back today with “What About Us,” the first official single off her upcoming seventh album Beautiful Trauma due out on Oct. 13. She also shared the video for the song.
The ballad, written by Pink, Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, and Steve Mac, showcases her ever-powerful vocal ability and incredible range. The first verse has minimal, piano-focused instrumentation that builds into a quicker drum and synth-laced hook that asks, “What about us?/What about all the times you said you had the answers?/What about us?”
The album is the singer’s first since her 2012 release The Truth About Love. Pink hasn’t been completely silent since then—she collaborated with super-producers StarGate for “Waterfall,” released “Just Like Fire,” for the film Alice Through the Looking Glass, and even scored a country hit alongside Kenny Chesney in “Setting the World on Fire.”
Pink is pretty consistent in delivering A+ music, so Oct. 13 can’t come soon enough.
