P!NK – Blow Me (One Last Kiss)
If there’s one thing that P!NK does well, it’s catchy pop that gets stuck in your head and rattles around in there for days… and days … and days. Her latest track (the charmingly titled ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ is the same formula that equals success.
The sassy singer is back with this new single and a new album due to be released in September (titled ‘The Truth About Love’. However, P!NK has told her fans to look forward to a mixed bag of sounds from the album rather than expecting the same poppy vibe all the way through.
In an interview with MTV, P!NK said: “It’s always funny for me with first singles; even my dearest, most loyal fans are always like ‘I hate her first single choice.’ Because it’s really hard for one song to represent a whole P!nk album, because a whole P!nk album doesn’t make sense. The only common thread is my voice. You’re going to have rock and roll, you’re going to have R&B. You’re going to have a country ballad and a folk song and a pop, Max Martin, radio-friendly hit. So I think that’s kind of the mystery bag, that’s what makes it fun.”
‘The Truth About Love’ is P!NK’s first album release since ‘Greatest Hits… So Far!’, which was her first greatest hits compilation, released in November 2010. The album hit the top ten in 13 countries around the world, and has sold over four million copies so far.
Though some might say she’s loco for releasing such a mixed bag for her new album, in characteristic carefree style, P!NK’s not bothered. “Listening back on this new album as a whole thing, it’s still a clusterf**k, but I realize I must be happier, because it’s a lot of dancing and rock and roll. I don’t know, it’s kind of scaring me,” she added to MTV.
“I used to be really motivated to do really dangerous and stupid things for love, and I was really fearful of love,” she continued “When I was a little girl, ‘love’ meant fighting and bickering and losing your parents. But now love is also having a child and unconditional and beautiful and, with my husband, sexual. Musically, it’s not a Sade record, where you know what you’re going to get when you put it on. It’s a P!nk record; you have no idea what you’re going to get. I don’t know what I’m doing when I go in to record an album, so I think that’s the theme: questions and experiences and running from — and running to — love.”
‘The Truth About Love’ – P!NK’s sixth studio album – will be released on RCA Records on 18 September this year.
