On This Day in #PinkHistory… 7th May 2021, All I Know So Far was released
All I Know So Far was written by Pink, Justin Paul and Benj Pasek with production by Greg Kurstin. It was released through RCA Records as a single from Pink’s live album All I Know So Far: Setlist.
The song is based on Pink’s life and career and was envisioned as an advice-filled letter to her daughter, Willow.
Talking about the song’s release with Fleur East on Capital Radio, Pink explained “It’s always nerve wracking but it’s exciting. I guess it’s a little more pressure because it’s sort of the song of my life. I was put under zero pressure to try and encapsulate my life in 3 minutes! So I wrote a letter to Willow and put it to a melody and here it is”.
The song received a nomination for Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.
The music video for All I Know So Far was directed by Dave Meyers, Pink’s long-time collaborator who has directed sixteen of her previous videos throughout her career. In a statement to Vulture, Pink explained: “Dave Meyers and I are back together again. Since this song is sort of the story of my life and a letter to my daughter, making this video with Dave after we did our first video together 22 years ago is a really special full circle moment. He’s truly a genius and I am full of gratitude for our friendship and to experience all the times we’ve been able to work together”. Myers added “The saga of me and P!nk is very long and it is very rewarding we are so close. I have the longest stretch of my career with her so there’s always been a kind of brother/sister relationship that we’ve had. The beauty of where P!nk and I are now is really the culmination of 22 years of friendship. In this video, I am trying to capture the full breadth of who she is, where she has been and the troubled youth that’s evolved into this idea of the power of community. It is where we are in the world right now and displays the idea that we really need each other”.
The video features appearances from actress Judith Light, singer and actress Cher, Pink’s husband Carey Hart and their children Willow Sage and Jameson Moon Hart.
The video was nominated for the MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects.
