Get the Party Started! Pink to Release First Compilation

with one comment

Not all tunes at The Second Disc headquarters are vintage cuts. Matter of fact, one of the neatest compilations from a modern pop artist was just announced yesterday: Greatest Hits…So Far!!!, the first compilation by pop singer Pink.

Emerging from a short-lived R&B group called Choice, Pink was given a solo contract on LaFace Records in 2000, the age of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Much to her resentment, she was quickly labeled as an edgier version of those singers. Undeterred, her sophomore album M!ssundaztood (2001) began a long string of pop records full of dance-rock anthems and deeply personal ballads. Or, in the case of songs like 2008’s No. 1 hit “So What,” her music can be both; it was written in the aftermath of her separation from motocross racer Carey Hart. (Interestingly, he appeared in the accompanying music video. Twice as interestingly, they since reunited.)

A new single, “Raise Your Glass,” was released to radio yesterday and will feature on the compilation. What remains to be seen is how exact the circulating track list is. The official press release shows a track list with only “Raise Your Glass” and as-yet undetermined new track as the bonuses, but an Australian press release posted to Pink’s official site lists a total of 20 tracks (to yet to be determined), including “Raise Your Glass” and the other new tune, three additional, previously released singles and a cover of American Idol finalist Adam Lambert’s hit single “Whataya Want from Me,” which Pink co-wrote.

Amazon has pre-order listings for a standard and deluxe edition with a DVD. The U.S. track list for both discs can be read after the jump.
