So far, P!nk‘s released her anthemic and emotional, lead-single “What About Us,” as well as the Jack Antonoff-produced title track from her upcoming seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma, which is set to be released next week on October 13th.
Today, along with the announcement that she’s headed out on a Beautiful Trauma Tour, P!nk‘s unleashed the soaring “Whatever You Want” – my favorite promo single yet! Surrounded by punchy drum beats and soft acoustics, the songstress makes no apologies about the ups and downs of her dysfunctional relationship. “Even when I fall/ You don’t seem to give two shits/ Cause you’re just too cool baby,” she declares. “We could have it all/ Neither one of us would budge/ Cause we can’t be wrong baby/ Folding up your arms, closing up your heart.”
And then comes in the stunner of a chorus, which is the real star here: “I feel like our ship’s going down tonight/ But it’s always darkest before the light/ And that’s enough for me to try/ Whatever you want/ Whatever you need/ Whatever you do, ah-ah-ah…“
It’s an impeccably crafted track that feels like signature P!nk – from the lyrics to the vocals to the production – and I’d say already a standout from the LP, which is quickly shaping up to be one of her strongest yet. GET INTO IT!!!
