The many shades of Pink
Singer Pink, who is back with her album , Truth About Love talks to The Guide about music, movies and motherhood
Alecia Beth Moore or Pink, as the world knows her, is back on the charts with a new album, Truth About Love after a break. Now, a mother of a one-year-old, Pink still plays the rebel through her music and manages motherhood too.
What is The Truth about Love about?
I am back with another full album that I’m very excited. Waiting for four years isn’t easy and when the wait is over, I know now how I have raised the bar for myself in terms of music. Truth About Love is a far more remarkable and interesting body of work compared to my earlier albums.
This comeback album has entered the Top 10 in several countries. How does it feel?
I feel elated and on top of the world. The success of my single even before the whole album released makes me joyous. People love my new album and the songs are just on everybody’s lips, they can’t stop humming.
Are there any collaborations in the album?
UK musician Lily Allen, rapper Eminem, and fun vocalist Nate Ruess are featured on tracks. I loved working with them; it was crazy
This is your first album after your daughter Willow was born. Has being a mum changed your music?
It feels wonderful to cuddle my one-year-old Willow, check her pulse early in the morning and make sure she’s having no temperature, play with her. Yes, family was on top of my mind, always.
