Celebrating 10 Years of I’m Not Dead!

I’m Not Dead was Pink’s fourth studio album. It was released on 4th April 2006 in the United States, to coincide the same release date of Pink’s first album, Can’t Take Me Home.

Originally title Long Way To Happy, it was scheduled for release in September 2005, however the album was delayed and its title changed to I’m Not Dead in order to match the comeback nature of the album, and its heavy tone in terms of lyrical content, strong language and edgy sound. I’m Not Dead is majorly a pop rock album, but includes country, alternative rock and R&B influences.

The release of I’m Not Dead was preceded by its controversial lead single, Stupid Girls, a top 20 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 the video of which earned Pink an MTV Video Music Award. The album’s second and third singles, Who Knew and U + Ur Hand, reached the top ten and revived the album’s sales fortunes in the U.S., leading to a platinum certification from the RIAA for sales of one million. The two songs are also Pink’s first two singles to achieve Platinum certifications. Subsequent regional singles include Nobody Knows, Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) and Dear Mr. President. A Platinum Edition of the album was issued with bonus tracks, remixes and a DVD.
