The set, which features a number of songs co-written with Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong, is the follow-up to her breakthrough album "M!ssundaztood."
Armstrong co-wrote and produced eight tracks on the set, including first single "Trouble," which will be sent to U.S. radio outlets Sept. 29 for airplay consideration. Armstrong also had a hand in "Tonight's the Night," "Save My Life," "Humble Neighborhoods," "Walk Away," "Unwind" and "Oh My God," which features X-rated rapper Peaches.
The album also has three songs -- "Catch Me While I'm Sleeping," "Waiting for Love" and "Try Too Hard" -- which were written or co-written by Linda Perry, Pink's collaborator for most of "M!ssundaztood." Billy Mann wrote and produced "God Is a DJ," while Damon Elliott co-wrote and produced "Love Song."
A video directed by Sophie Muller was recently filmed in Los Angeles and will be the subject of a Sept. 29 MTV "Making the Video" special.
"M!ssundaztood" contained the singles "Get the Party Started," "Just Like a Pill," "Don't Let Me Get Me" and "Family Portrait." It peaked at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 4.9 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
