P!nk lays down her sword and dives into the pain in her emotional new song, “All I Know So Far,” the title track to her upcoming documentary/album of the same name. The song, which dropped on Friday morning (May 7), was produced by Greg Kurstin and co-written by the singer and Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and it’s a classic P!nk tale of perseverance and strength.
“I wish someone would have told me that this life is ours to choose/ No one’s handing you the keys or a book with all the rules/ The little that I know I’ll tell to you/ When they dress you up in lies and you’re left naked with the truth,” she sings over a gently plucked acoustic guitar before powering into the chin-up chorus.
“You throw your head back, and you spit in the wind/ Let the walls crack, ’cause it lets the light in/ Let ’em drag you through hell/ They can’t tell you to change who you are/ That’s all I know so far,” she sings with steely eyed conviction. “And when the storm’s out, you run in the rain/ Put your sword down, dive right into the pain/ Stay unfiltered and loud, you’ll be proud of that skin full of scars/ That’s all I know so far/ That’s all I know so far.”
The singer also dropped the Princess Bride-like video for the song, which features cameos from an angelic Cher, husband Carey Hart and a spectral Judith Light. The Dave Meyers video marks the 16th collaboration between the two over a 22 year span that began with her very first clip for “There You Go” from 2000. “Dave Meyers and I are back together again,” the singer said in a statement. “Since this song is sort of the story of my life and a letter to my daughter, making this video with Dave after we did our first video together 22 years ago is a really special full circle moment. He’s truly a genius and I am full of gratitude for our friendship and to experience all the times we’ve been able to work together.”
After falling from the sky onto a cactus, the cinematic visual finds the singer telling her son a fairy tale about her life that includes her battling a trio of pig-faced giants, literally running through a shower of slings and arrows and stumbling through a desert filled with floating eyeballs, among other trippy images.
The Michael Gracey-directed film P!nk: All I Know So Far hits Amazon Prime Video on May 21. The title track will also show up on the project’s official 16-track RCA Records soundtrack, All I Know So Far: Setlist, which features live takes on such iconic hits as “Just Like a Pill,” “Just Give Me a Reason” and “So What” as well as her MTV Video Vanguard Award Speech, covers of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions” and her heart-swelling duet with daughter Willow, “Cover Me in Sunshine.”
