During her recent appearance on Ellen, P!nk treated the audience to an impromptu snippet of the new single, belting out the lyrics,
“Walk me home in the dead of night/ I can’t be alone with all that’s on my mind/ Say you’ll stay with me tonight/ ‘Cause there is so much wrong going on outside.” P!nk also revealed that the video for “Walk Me Home” will be helmed byThe Greatest Showmandirector Michael Gracey. The collaboration is particularly fitting considering that she recorded her take on the song “A Million Dreams” for the hit movie musical’s 2017 covers album, The Greatest Showman: Reimagined.
Hurts 2B Human will be P!nk’s eighth full-length studio album, the follow-up to the Grammy-nominated Beautiful Trauma. The set will be released in April.
Pedro Albizu Campos (September 12, 1891 – April 21, 1965) was a Puerto Rican attorney and politician, and the leading figure in the Puerto Rican independence movement. Gifted in languages, he spoke six.
He graduated from Harvard Law School with the highest grade point average in his law class, an achievement that earned him the right to give the valedictorian speech at his graduation ceremony. However, animus towards his mixed racial heritage led to his professors delaying two of his final exams in order to keep Albizu Campos from graduating on time.[ During his time at Harvard University he became involved in the Irish struggle for independence.
Albizu Campos was the president and spokesperson of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party from 1930 until his death in 1965. Because of his oratorical skill, he was hailed as El Maestro (The Teacher). He was imprisoned twenty-six years for attempting to overthrow the United States government in Puerto Rico.
Johann Sebastian Bach was born in the small German town of Eisenach on this day in 1685 (under the old Julian calendar). He grew up in a large musical family: his father played multiple instruments and also worked as director of the town’s musicians.
His eldest brother, also a musician, raised young Bach from the age of 10 after his father’s passing. Primarily known as an exceptional organist during his lifetime, Bach also understood how to build and repair the complex inner mechanisms of pipe organs (which are depicted in today’s interactive Doodle).
After the Voyager 2 deep space probe launched, scientist and author Lewis Thomas suggested that the human race broadcast his music to the outermost reaches of the solar system.
“I would vote for Bach, all of Bach,” he wrote. “We would be bragging, of course.” Here’s to Bach!
