P!nk paid tribute to her late father, Jim Moore, on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) with the release of her emotionally heart-felt ballad, “When I Get There.” 

The three-time Grammy award-winner dropped her touching lyric video to accompany the track, featuring home videos of her and Moore from the singer’s childhood up until the recent years before he passed. 

“I thought it would be nice if you had some memories of how it all began, and where you all came from and some of the memories through the years. It’ll always be so important to all of us,” Moore narrated over the video’s intro. 

After two successful single releases from her forthcoming album Trustfall — the dance-pop anthem “Never Gonna Not Dance Again” and the EDM-driven “TRUSTFALL” — this sentimental track reveals the tenderness and vulnerability that P!nk effortlessly brings to the table with just her vocals and a piano. 

“Is there a bar up there / Where you’ve got a favorite chair / Where you sit with friends and talk about the weather / Is there a place you go / To watch the sunset and oh / Is there a song you just can’t wait to share / Yeah I know you’ll tell me when I get there,” she sings on the chorus of the song.

The Pennsylvania native shared a thirty-second preview of the video on Twitter and wrote, “Sometimes love leaves us too soon. On Valentine’s Day – I cherish the love I have that I can touch – and the love I have in my heart for those who have gone on to the next adventure. This one’s for you, Daddy Sir,” she concluded, using her adoring nickname for the Vietnam veteran. 

P!nk also performed a powerful live rendition of the song, backed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra inside their historical Maida Vale Studios in London. 

Moore passed away in August of 2021 after battling prostate cancer for eight years. The “So What” singer is often open about their closeness and the lessons he had taught her throughout her life. 

Trustfall will be available this Friday (Feb 17) and will feature 13 tracks, including “Never Gonna Not Dance Again,” “TRUSTFALL” and “When I Get There.” It will also feature duets with Chris Stapleton, The Lumineers and First Aid Kit.

The new record serves as the follow-up to her first live collection, All I Know So Far: Setlist, as well as her 2019 project, Hurts 2B Human, which included fan-favorite hits such as “Walk Me Home,” “Can We Pretend,” “Hustle,” “Love Me Anyway,” and more.

P!nk will also be embarking on a massive 2023 Stadium Tour, dubbed the Summer Carnival Tour. The trek will begin on July 24 in Toronto, Ontario at Rogers Centre and continue through October 9 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field— hitting 21 cities and featuring special guests Brandi Carlile, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Grouplove and DJ Kid Cut Up.
