Pink has been wanting to work with Rag’n’Bone Man for some time
According to Radio X, Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, has had her eye on a Rag’n’Bone man collaboration for many years.
“I first encountered Rag’N’ Bone Man in Europe in 2017 not long after hearing his song Human,” the Just Like a Pill hitmaker said.
“Since then, I knew I wanted to work with him one day. Anywhere Away From Here couldn’t be a better song for us to sing together. I’m so honored to be a part of this collaboration.”
As for Rag’n’Bone Man, he expressed that Anywhere Away From Here is “an honest reflection of wanting to disappear from uncomfortable situations — about the vulnerabilities that we all face.”
“It’s a honor to have Pink on this record and I’m so glad she is able to be a part of it.”
