Two days ago, P!nk surprised fans with an announcement of her first song with her daughter, Willow Sage Hart. In an effort to uplift us during this ongoing pandemic, the mother and daughter duo recorded a song called “Cover Me In Sunshine.” Today, fans can hear the single and see its new music video.
In her announcement video on Wednesday, P!nk stated:
We all know this year has been different and challenging and, at times, terrifying, and tumultuous and angsty and all the things. And I personally find comfort in music. I find comfort in song. I love singing with my daughter and my son. It’s a little different when he does it, though… I think he’s gonna be in a metal band.
But we have this song called “Cover Me In Sunshine” that we recorded at home, because it made us feel happy. And so we’re gonna put it out for no other reason than that we hope that the song makes you feel happy. We thought we’d put it out around Valentine’s Day as a big ol’ hug and a kiss from us to all y’all.
“Cover Me In Sunshine” is a short but impactful song. It opens with acoustic guitar, setting up a soundscape that feels natural and warm. P!nk sings gently on the verses, creating a feeling of hope. On the chorus, Willow, only nine years old, harmonizes with her mother. In contrast to the more straightforward verses, the chorus has a slightly darker or more ethereal tone, like rediscovering the light after a rainstorm. Willow sings alone on the last chorus, and you can hear her vocal similarities with P!nk. She could grow into a remarkable singer soon! “Cover Me In Sunshine” walks the line between pop and country or folk, and it’s a nice reminder of the good that’s still in our loves.
The music video captures the feeling and message of the song beautifully. Filmed like a home movie, we see P!nk and Willow wandering around farmland, open fields, and lakesides. Willow feeds chickens, rides horses, and climbs trees. Together, they get onto the lake to sing the song together. It’s an intimate and sweet video that reminds us of simpler, happier times.
