Demi Lovato Unsure of Direction for Next Album Due to Personal Growth
Demi Lovato's recent shift from pop to rock music reflects her evolving style, as evidenced by her latest album "HOLY FVCK." However, the singer recently revealed that she is uncertain about the direction of her next album due to significant changes in her life.
During a CBS News interview, Demi Lovato, born Demetria Devonne Lovato, discussed her return to her musical roots, having grown up listening to emo music. She explained that the emo genre appeals to Gen Z because it encompasses a wide range of emotions, whether listeners are experiencing "depression or having fun with your friends."
One of Lovato's previous songs, "Dancing with the Devil," delved into her vulnerability as she recounted her near-death experience following a drug overdose in 2018 when she was just 25 years old. The former "Princess Protection Program" star has since used her music as a means of transformation, and she now acknowledges being in a positive place emotionally.
Nonetheless, as most of her songs deal with themes of sadness and angst, Lovato admits that she is unsure how to approach her next album. "I don't know what I'm gonna write about on my next album because I'm so happy... It is a really good feeling. But I don't know what I'm gonna do," she said.
While Lovato's eighth studio album, "HOLY FVCK," was released last year, the artist continues to produce new music. Most recently, she released "Still Alive," which is featured on the official soundtrack for "Scream VI."
In a surprise move last month, the singer re-released her popular 2013 song "Heart Attack" in a rock version, diverging from its original pop sound. The song, originally part of her "DEMI" album, enjoyed immense success, peaking at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart.
As Lovato navigates this new phase in her life and music career, fans eagerly await the direction she will take with her upcoming album. Her personal growth and happiness may inspire a new sound or theme, reflecting the ongoing evolution of this talented artist.
