Hear Pink's new single, "What About Us," out now; more new album details released

Wednesday night, Pink announced that her new album, Beautiful Trauma, would be out October 13.  Now, the first single from the disc, "What About Us," has arrived, along with more details about the project. "What About Us" was co-written by Pink and two of Ed Sheeran's main collaborators: Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, and Steve Mac.  The song seems to be a criticism of someone or some group of people -- possibly politicians -- who promised the moon, but then failed to deliver.  It ends with a call to action.
