Details on Pink’s upcoming album have been hard to come by this summer – until now. Due in stores on November 11, the singer’s album now has a tentative title, Try This.
The track list is still under wraps, but the first single – also tentative – will most likely be called “God Is a DJ,” an energetic, melodic pop song that merges Pink’s exuberant dance-floor energy with a grinding, rock edge.
On the hook, Pink sings, “If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor, love is a river, and you are the music/ If God is a DJ, life is a dance floor, you get what is given, it’s all how you use it.”
During an internal Arista Records event in New York on Tuesday, label president Antonio “LA” Reid said he was blown away with Pink’s vocal prowess on her new material, particularly the emotional ballad “Catch Me While I’m Sleeping.” “She’s really showing off her vocal talents on this album,” Reid said.
While Pink has remained mum on Try This, others have spilled some of the beans. Songwriter Linda Perry, who worked with Pink on her multiplatinum Missundaztood, confessed that she was again collaborating with the singer. She indicated that the songs this time around would be much lighter emotionally than on the last album.
Rancid’s Tim Armstrong has said he’s been writing songs with Pink, but when asked about it recently, Pink said, “I don’t tell who I’m working with yet.” Pink’s reps would also not confirm his involvement.
