Walk Me Home was released as the lead single for Pink’s eighth studio album, Hurts 2B Human. Pink announced the track during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in early February 2019. Walk Me Home was written by Pink, Scott Friedman and Nate Ruess. It was produced by Peter Thomas and Kyle Moorman.
Upon its release, critical response was positive towards the track, with music critics commending the optimistic departure from Pink’s previous singles. Commercially, Walk Me Home achieved moderate success and charted within the top-ten charts of several countries, including Croatia, Ireland, Latvia, Poland, Slovenia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. In the United States, the single peaked at number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached number-one on the Adult Pop Songs chart, extending Pink’s lead as the soloist with the most number-ones on the chart. For promotion, an accompanying lyric video was uploaded onto Pink’s official YouTube channel simultaneously with the song’s release, followed by the release of a music video directed by Michael Gracey in March, 2019. Pink performed Walk Me Home at the 2019 Brit Awards and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
