Today (August 10), P!nk won’t require the likes circus harnesses or pulley sets to soar — her new “What About Us” is, itself, airborne.
The single, a look into her next studio album, Beautiful Trauma, finally dropped this morning and stuns as soon as it starts. Built off of gentle piano progressions, the track takes flight at the chorus as Pink bemoans all that could have been and all that’s lost.
“What about us? / What about all the times you said you had the answers? / What about us? / What about all the broken happy ever afters?” she fires.
Pink, who began teasing “What About Us” in July, said in a new Instagram photo that Beautiful Trauma includes some of her career’s best work.
“I could not be more excited right now,” she wrote. “My single comes out today “What About Us” and my new album Beautiful Trauma comes out October 13th. I’m certifiably, insanely proud of this album. It’s been a while, and I’m grateful for all the years we’ve had. Looking forward to the next chapter with you.”
“Bitch came to destroy ‘Despacito,'” one fan wrote after listening to the song, while another noted “I’m wigless, I wasn’t ready!”
