P!nk – Raise Your Glass

“Oh shit my glass is empty….that sucks.”
And so my huge love of pop comes to light once more (not that it’s ever particularly in the dark), headed as usual by one Alecia Moore.
P!nk is set to release a greatest hits album on November 16th (November 15th in the UK), entitled Greatest Hits…So Far! (The ‘so far’ part being important: a sixth studio album is expected in 2011). The album apparently contains 18 of P!nk’s best tracks as well as 3 new songs, the first of which, ‘Raise Your Glass’, premiered yesterday on P!nk’s official site, stream it below. It’s a P!nk/Max Martin collaboration, and although it features several questionable lyrics – “What’s the dealio?”, “Don’t be fancy, just get dance-y”, “If you’re too school for cool” – it doesn’t take long for the melody, rhythm and sing-a-long chorus to creep into your head. In fact it took less than one play for me to be singing along. God damn Max Martin and his ability to create pop smashes.
The cover art above is for the album, and is much superior to the single cover:
Ugh. The colours, the make-up, the studs. No. The album art is great though so let’s focus on that.
