Pink released her sixth studio album The Truth About Love in September this year on the back of smash-hit Blow Me (One Last Kiss). Amazingly in the US it became Pink’s first number one album over her career so far. Here in the UK the album peaked at number 2. With her new single Try riding high in the UK charts, the singer-songwriter has re-released the album as a new Fan Edition package just in time for Christmas.
The Truth About Love: Fan Edition contains the entire original album and 7 bonus tracks, all of which have featured on various editions of the album with the exception of the raucous The King Is Dead But The Queen Is Alive which was the b-side for Blow Me (One Last Kiss). This is the first time all of the tracks have appeared on one release and they certainly add even more value to an already fantastic album.
All of these tracks could easily have fit into the original release’s tracklist. Punchy My Signature Move is classic Pink,Is This Thing On? is a mid-tempo ballad with a gentle beat and Timebomb is an explosive pop/rock stormer that could be ear-marked as a future single. The charmingly named Chaos & Piss is surprisingly sombre and is the kind of ballad that Pink’s fans yearn for when they see her live. Our favourite of the new tracks is a toss-up between the stadium sized mid-tempo number Run (thankfully not a Snow Patrol cover) and the hand-clap filled uptempo numberGood Old Days
The release comes with a DVD featuring the videos for Blow Me (One Last Kiss) and Try as well as live performances of Are Well All We Are, Blow Me (One Last Kiss), Try and Fuckin’ Perfect. There’s also a behind-the-scenes featurette from the album’s photoshoot.
If you haven’t already got your copy of The Truth About Love then you’ve no excuse now this fantastic Fan Edition is available. Packed with fantastic tunes, it’s Pink’s best body of work to date and we can’t wait to see her performing these tracks on her UK tour next year. She doesn’t often get as much credit as she deserves but Pink is one of the finest female popstars on the planet and she’s certainly the most consistent.
