Pink's When I Get There Album Review

The world may know Pink as a high-flying superstar who blasts through arena rafters, but she's just as comfortable behind the scenes. Her 6-year-old son Jameson and 12-year-old daughter Willow are regular tour members, riding their scooters on stage during sound checks. And there's a tour library where the team swaps books. It's just part of the unconventional charm that fans have come to expect from the singer who's made her career belting out party anthems while flipping a hundred feet in the air.

The ninth album from the Pennsylvania native is aptly named Trustfall, and it's a solid continuation of her career in both songwriting and production. She recruited Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes to co-write with her, and enlisted established hitmakers like Max Martin and Greg Kurstin alongside newcomers like Julia Michaels and Jack Antonoff.

It's a conscious effort to push past the pop boundaries that defined her earlier albums, but it's not without its share of ballads like the opener "When I Get There," which is dedicated to her late father Jim Moore. The song is a moving tribute to her loss, and she questions him in the chorus about his life in heaven — whether he's climbing trees or singing brand-new melodies.

She's feeling the love from above, too. During a recent show in Munich, a fan caught video of what appeared to be a heart-shaped cloud hovering over her as she sang the song in honor of her dad. The clip was shared to her Instagram story on Wednesday.
