MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Dolly Parton - Inside

Pink's new album has arrived!

On Friday (April 26), the singer-songwriter officially unveiled her eighth studio album, Hurts 2B Human. The 13-track project, which comes complete with everything from standalone singles "Walk Me Home" and "Hustle" to emotional duets with Khalid for "Hurts 2B Human" and Chris Stapleton for "Love Me Anyway," celebrates the musician's first LP after 2017's Beautiful Trauma.

While packed with dance-ready tracks like the Cash Cash-assisted "Can We Pretend" and "(Hey Why) Miss You Sometime," beating at the heart of Pink's latest offering are the vulnerable anthems for humanity and humility in the form of piano- and guitar-laden ballads such as "My Attic" to "Happy" to "Courage."

With Hurts 2B Human, the 39-year-old songbird sheds the tough exterior of her Missundaztood and I'm Not Dead days and opens her arms and heart to first-time listeners and longtime admirers.

In speaking with iHeartRadio about Hurts 2B Human, Pink expressed how personal and human experiences took priority in writing the album to strike a more universal chord.

"It doesn't matter where you're from or what you look like or how much money you have or, what you do with your time. We're all putting one foot in front of the other trying to figure it out...And that's, that's what it is," she said. "That's what poetry is, that's what writing is, that's what journaling is, that's what songwriting is. This is my experience, and I'm sure somebody else is gonna be able to relate to it."
