Fresh from a break from the music business, which saw her reunite with gorgeous motorcross racer husband Corey Hart and give birth to their first child, Pink is back with her new album, The Truth About Love.
Having been a fan of Pink since her hair was that vivid shade of cerise, I was excited about the new album: its first single ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ was a good indicator of things to come, I hoped.
Pink has put a lot of effort into making every song worthy of its place on the album; there’s not a single track I felt was there just to fill space.
‘The Truth About Love’ combines slow, soulful ballads, like ‘Try’ and ‘Give Me A Reason’, and up–tempo, fast-paced tunes. ‘How Come You’re Not Here’ harks back to the rocky edginess of ‘Last To Know’. ‘True Love’ describes the ups and downs of a relationship in Pink’s own unimitable way; “sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face’. The song ‘Beam Me Up’ channels Jack Johnson, with Pink’s voice accompanied by a guitar; the variety shows how much Pink has evolved as an artist.
So, The Truth About Love – definitely worth a listen.
