P!nk recently confirmed that her new album will be called The Truth About Love, and it's coming out on September 18. By now fans have become familiar with her new single, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," but the singer says that song is not necessarily representative of the whole album, which is really a mixed bag of sounds.
"It's always funny for me with first singles; even my dearest, most loyal fans are always like 'I hate her first single choice.' Always. 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," she told MTV News. "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's fun." Pink then added, "Although, listening back on this 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 laughed.
P!nk also told MTV that the title track is one of her favorite songs on the record, and it encompasses the main lyrical theme of the album.
"I used to be really motivated to do really dangerous and stupid things for love, and I was really fearful of love," she said. "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."
