When deciding whether to contribute to the Alice Through the Looking Glass soundtrack, Pink considered one very important person in her life: her four-and-a-half-year-old daughter Willow.
The singer tells People magazine she decided to write a song for the upcoming Disney flick after screening the film with her daughter. “She was like, ‘Can we watch it again?’” Pink says.
Pink was also a fan of the film’s feminist message. “What’s awesome about Alice is the whole theme, from the start of the movie, is: Girls can do it too. She’s the captain of her own ship, but it takes her female-ness to be that fierce, so that’s another great [message] for our house. I try to keep Willow as empowered as possible.”
Willow, whom Pink calls “my inspiration for everything,” also influenced the essence of the song. “I think of that spirit Willow has, where she’s totally uninhibited and wants to dance around naked, and that’s how I go into the song,” Pink says.
In addition to writing and recording an original tune for the movie, Pink is contributing a cover of the classic Jefferson Airplane tune “White Rabbit,” which you can preview in a featurette on the Disney Movie Trailers YouTube page.
Alice Through the Looking Glass, starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, will be released May 27 by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
