Pink Drops Jack Antonoff-Produced 'Beautiful Trauma' Title Track: Listen

Pink has just released the title track of her forthcoming album Beautiful Trauma, which she co-wrote with Jack Antonoff

"Tomorrow I'm releasing the title track to BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA," she tweeted on Wednesday evening (Sept. 27). "I wrote the song with a very awesome person @jackantonoff and named the album after it (because) life is f*cking traumatic. But it's also incredibly beautiful, too. There's a lot of beauty still and beautiful souls. Enjoy."

Fans didn't have to wait long as the song was released at 8 a.m. Eastern time this morning (Sept. 28). Pink gets straight to the point in the first verse as she sings over piano, "We were on fire/I slashed your tires/It's like we burned so bright we burnt out/I made you chase me, I wasn't that friendly/My love, my drug, we're fucked up."

The beat picks up and Pink explains that her love is the "pill I keep taking" and her "beautiful trauma."

Prior to "Beautiful Trauma," Pink released the empowering lead single "What About Us" in August. Beautiful Trauma is due out on Oct. 13 and is the singer's first album since 2012's The Truth About Love.

She was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs in August. In her acceptance speech, she detailed a recent time when her young daughter came to her upset because she felt she was ugly. 

"We help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty," she said.
