On This Day in Pink History… 9th May 2016, Just Like Fire music video was released
The official video for Just Like Fire was directed by Dave Meyers and was released May 9, 2016, ahead of the US premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass. The video features Pink’s husband Carey Hart and their daughter Willow. In it, Pink is observed swinging on silk ropes hung from the ceiling of a large drawing room by her husband. Her daughter, seated on a nearby fireplace mantle, watches as a blue butterfly flies into a mirror over the fireplace. Willow follows, stepping into the mirror. Shortly after, Pink swings on the ropes and leaps onto the mantle, stepping into the mirror as well. She arrives on a giant chessboard outside a castle. On the chessboard are doubles of Pink dressed as various chess pieces. The doubles circle Pink and the white queen shoves her over. She lands in a chair at a table set up for a tea party suspended in the air. Also seated around the table is the Mad Hatter and Willow. The butterfly from the beginning flies around the table as Pink sings the song’s bridge. Suddenly, she falls out of her chair and is shown falling through the sky, stopping inches off the ground in a rose garden. The Timekeeper from the film gives Willow a watch in the background. Then, Pink begins hallucinating scenes from the film, her in a straightjacket, and scene from earlier in the video. It suddenly cuts to Pink in a straightjacket, being carted away into a sanitarium while her husband signs the release papers with a female doctor.
Just Like Fire has been released on 15th April 2016 at all digital providers via RCA Records/Walt Disney Records. The song is the first single to be released by Pink in three years and a music video directed by Dave Meyers is set to follow in May.
Just Like Fire was co-written by P!nk, Max Martin, Shellback and Oscar Holter and produced by Martin, Shellback and Holter specifically for Alice Through The Looking Glass. This is the first time P!nk has written an original song for a live action feature film. Just Like Fire will appear in the film and on the motion picture soundtrack from Walt Disney Records featuring score from four-time Academy Award nominee Danny Elfman.
Pink has also recorded a cover of White Rabbit for the film.
