“What about all the broken happy ever afters?”
P!nk’s new song “What About Us” has arrived.
P!nk usually kicks off an era with an upbeat pop rock song, but the pop star is taking a different approach this time around. The pop star enlisted songwriter/producer Steve Mac (Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony,” Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down,” Rita Ora’s “Your Song” and Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You”) for her new tune. On it, she poses several unanswered questions about love.
“What about us? / What about all the times you said you had the answers?,” she sings over a mid-tempo beat and a haunting piano melody. “What about us? / What about all the broken happy ever afters?”
“What About Us” serves as the first official single off the singer’s forthcoming album, Beautiful Trauma, out October 13.
