Pink has revealed her new album reflects that she's having "more fun" these days.
The US star - who is unveiling her new record The Truth About Love - said she used to be "really dark" but hinted that things have changed now that she is mum to 15-month-old daughter Willow.
She said: "Now, I wake up and check her pulse and make sure she's not having a temperature. And then we dance. And we dance, and we dance, and we dance.
"Then, we go on bike rides. And we dance some more. Everything's a song. It's just a lot more fun. I guess that's how the record reflects where I am right now. I'm just having a lot more fun than I ever have."
Pink calls her new album, which features Eminem, Nate Ruess of Fun and Lily Rose Cooper "just kinda all over the place".
"(I was) just having fun. I think that's a new thing for me. I was having a lot more fun than I was having before. I think production-wise it's a lot more interesting," she said. "The musicality, I feel like I raised the bar for myself."
Pink revealed that being a mother helped to lighten her mood while recording, and also changed the process.
She explained: "Studio sessions used to be like, 'OK. I'm gonna start my record. Get the whiskey and some cigarettes, and let's do this (expletive) thing'.
"Now, it's Monday through Friday from 1 to 10pm. She would be there every couple of hours. Everyone I worked with was either a parent or friend, so it was very, very easy."
