Songfacts®:

  • This iTunes bonus track is one of two The Truth About Love cuts that Pink's baby daughter, Willow, guests on. "She plays bells on 'How Come You're Not Here,'" the proud mom told MTV News, "and she plays bass on a song called 'Timebomb.' She went up to the bass guitar on 'Timebomb' and started plucking away. She's actually pretty good! She's better on bass than I am! She plays piano, she bangs sh--, she's either going to be violent or a percussionist... or a violent percussionist."
  • One of Pink's fans was arrested after tweeting that he had a bomb and was on his way to see the singer perform in Australia. Turned out he was just talking about this song.
  • Pink released The Truth About Love four years after her previous album, Funhouse, which was largely inspired by her separation from husband Carey Hart. In the interim, the couple reconciled and welcomed baby Willow in 2011.
