On This Day in Pink History… 12th November 2010, Greatest Hits… So Far! was released

On This Day in Pink History… 12th November 2010, Greatest Hits… So Far! was released

Greatest Hits… So Far! is the first greatest hits album released by Pink in celebration of her first decade on the music scene. The album track list differs depending on region and has four new tracks. It was the last material that Pink released under LaFace Records and Jive Records before moving to RCA Records.

There were two new singles released from the album, Raise Your Glass and Fuckin’ Perfect.

Originally, Pink was against releasing a greatest hits compilation, stating that she “was not inspired at all for this album… I always figured you need to be 60 or better, to have a little more past, to put one of these out. I fought it for years.” However, she changed her mind, realizing that “record companies can put out compilations without your permission” and concluded: “I wanted it done my way, so I jumped on board. Then, the less skeptical I felt about it, I started to feel a little proud.”

The album reached the top ten in album charts in many countries including: Australia (1), Germany (3), UK (5) and USA (5).

On This Day in Pink History… 11th November 2003, Try This was released

On This Day in Pink History… 11th November 2003, Try This was released

Try This is Pink’s third studio album released in November 2003 and was her final album released under Arista Records. Most of the tracks were produced and co-written by Rancid singer and guitarist Tim Armstrong, who Pink met at a Transplants video shoot. They ended up co-writing ten songs in a week when the Transplants were on tour with the Foo Fighters. Linda Perry also worked with Pink for Try This, and the album includes a collaboration with Peaches.

In 2006, Pink said that she was unhappy with the way the record label wanted her to make an album straight after the success of Missundaztood. She described the promotional campaign for the album as “an awful time. I was walking out of half my interviews crying. I just felt they were putting a quarter in the slot to watch the monkey dance.”

“I was kind of rebelling against the label on that one,” she said. “I was going: ‘You want a record? Fine, I’ll write 10 songs in a week for your fuckin’ record and you can press it up and put it out.'”

Despite being Pink’s lowest selling album, Try This debuted at number nine on the US Billboard 200, and also reached the top ten on album charts in the UK (3), Canada (8), Australia (8) and Germany (2)

There were four singles released from Try This:

  • Feel Good Time
  • Trouble
  • God is a DJ
  • Last To Know

In 2004, Pink embarked on the Try This Tour in Europe and Australia to support the album. The show was recorded at Manchester Arena for her first live DVD.
