The first single from the singer’s upcoming seventh album, Beautiful Trauma (which is due out Oct. 13) was co-written by P!nk, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid and the track’s producer, Steve Mac and it asks a variety of searching, urgent questions over an insistent beat.
“What about us?/ What about all the times you said you had the answers?/ What about us?/ What about all the broken happy ever afters?” she sings on the song’s soaring chorus.
It’s up to you to interpret if she’s asking those questions of a lover or of the current state of the world right now. You can do that by listening to “What About Us” below.
