After the longest break of her career, Pink is planning to roar back in the fall with her first album of new material in four years. In a video posted to fans on Wednesday, the singer revealed the name and release date of the follow-up to 2008’s Funhouse.
“My new album is coming out on, I believe, September 18 and it’s called The Truth About Love,” said the singer, who sported a white tuxedo jacket with black lapels, a white mesh t-shirt with black tape x’s covering her naughty bits and an upswept blonde ’do with pink streaks in the playful clip. Before she got to the serious business, Pink joked around about the “really important” news she had to share, trying several different methods of getting her fans excited about the new music. “That was perfect!” she said upon finally getting the words out.
The disc is Pink’s first since giving birth to her daughter, Willow Sage, last June, and fans have gotten a sneak peek at what’s in store with the first single, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss).” The song was co-written and produced by Greg Kurstin, who notched a #1 hit earlier this year with Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” which Billboard reports is the best-selling single ever by an “American Idol” contestant.
Pink teased the release of the cheekily titled “Blow Me” last month , explaining in another video message, “I wrote it with Greg Kurstin, who is amazing. And we had an incredible time … [my daughter] Willow played bells and bass on a couple of other songs, but I think you’re really gonna like it ’cause I really like it and I like it enough for all of us. See you soon!”
