Pink Dances With Shadows In Epic “Walk Me Home” Video
Pink has been serving iconic visuals since the turn of the century (“There You Go” and “Most Girls” are modern art), but I think she just delivered her best one yet. Directed by The Greatest Showman’s Michael Gracey, the pop/rocker’s “Walk Me Home” visual is a love letter of sorts to movie musicals like Singing In The Rain. It finds the hitmaker dancing her way along empty streets with a little help from shadow partners. The clip makes good use of Pink’s legendary acrobatic skill and has a timeless quality that is startling in the age of throwaway video clips.
Pairing a killer song with a fully realized, fitting visual concept is no easy feat, but Pink makes it look easy. There’s every chance this video will go viral, which will only help to propel “Walk Me Home” up the charts. And, hopefully, open the hearts (and minds) of youth-obsessed pop radio programmers. In addition to dropping a poetic video, the 39-year-old also confirmed the release date of Hurts 2B Human. The pop icon’s 8th studio album arrives on April 26 and is destined to be one of the year’s biggest sellers.
