Alecia Beth Moore a.k.a P!nk is getting the party started with her upcoming album ‘Beautiful Trauma’. It's been five years since P!nk's blockbuster LP The Truth About Love topped the Billboard 200 and spawned three top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including her fourth No. 1 ("Just Give Me a Reason" ft. Nate Ruess). Not that she hasn't been busy: Her folk foray, You+Me with Dallas Green, released its debut album in 2014, and 2016 saw her duet with Kenny Chesney, notch a top 10 hit with "Just Like Fire," and welcome her second child with husband Corey Hart. Even so, this has been the longest wait between P!nk solo efforts – and it comes to a close on Oct. 13 when she invites us to experience her ‘Beautiful Trauma’.
P!nk – who co-wrote all the project's tracks - rounded up a roster of reliable hitmakers for her return to pop. Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" co-writers Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid joined her to pen lead single "What About Us," which she paired with a resistance fist on Instagram and described as "the start of us waking up." Other Beautiful Trauma tracks boast frequent Billboard charts visitors such as pop diva whisperer Jack Antonoff, Max Martin, Greg Kurstin, Shellback, busbee, and "Issues" singer Julia Michaels.
"I could not be more excited right now," The 37 year old Grammy-winner wrote on Instagram, where she announced her upcoming seventh album and the new single along with sharing the album cover. "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," she continued. "It's been a while and I'm grateful for all the years we've had. Looking forward to the next chapter with you."
