Pink’s new album will be called The Truth About Love and it will be released September 18, 2012. The album will be available as both a standard and deluxe version. The deluxe edition will offer fans four additional bonus tracks.
P!nk has teamed up with producer Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foster The People & The Shins) for the very first time on this release along with long time collaborators Max Martin and Shellback, Billy Mann and Butch Walker. She has also worked with songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele’s Someone Like You). The album is P!nk’s unique take on the different shades of love.
The first single, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” has exploded worldwide since it impacted radio last week and is available for sale at all digital service providers.

Having taken time out of the limelight to start a family, the tracks’ infectious melodies and kick-ass lyrics have let the world know that P!nk is back and at her absolute best!
P!nk announced earlier this morning on NBC’s The Today Show that she will be performing at the iHeart Radio Festival on September 22nd in Las Vegas. She will also be returning to The Today Show performing on The Plaza on release day, September 18th.

In an interview aired on Australia’s “Today Show”, P!nk declared, “I’m excited. I think the songs are elevated and smart and fun.” She went on to say, “The motivation for this album is love and all of the different shades of it – dark, light, happy, sad, what love can motivate you to do, just all of it. Just exploring how much it can hurt and how much it can feel good. It’s not cheesy.”
Making a splash on YouTube is the lead single of the upcoming effort is “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” which was released earlier this month. “Hi, world! I’ve got an announcement to make. My new single, off my new record, off my new life, is called ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ and it’s very exciting, I wrote it with Greg Kurstin, who is amazing.
