This past week, Alecia Moore (better known as P!nk) announced that she has teamed up with Canadian Folk singer-songwriter Dallas Green for a collaborative album titled Rose Ave. under the band name You+Me.
Now, I don’t know about you but this, for me, is one of the most exciting musical events this year. Especially since last month The Civil Wars (aka one of the best collaborative pair-ups ever) decided to part ways, leaving a huge gap in the Folk Pop genre or the music industry in general desparate to be filled.
Along with the announcement of a new album, came the lead single You & Me,
In the track, the pop princess harmonises beautifully with the man behind City and Colour on top of his acoustic guitar instrumental.
I personally adore P!nk’s maturity in this that will sure be mistaken for lacklusterness… simply because this is no Get The Party Started. Or U + Ur Hand. Or So What. Or Raise Your Glass. Or Blow Me (One Last Kiss). But I’m all for artists reinventing themselves, conducting harmless creative experiments and if the results produce lyrical perfection like /you say everything, it happens for a reason – you can be flawed enough but perfect for a person/, why complain?
