Stans, get ready for a new era of Demi Lovato's music. On the night before the singer's new tell-all documentary, 'Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil,' is set to premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, Lovato dropped some surprising news for fans that she is going to release a brand-new album next month. During a live stream on Clubhouse on March 15, Lovato announced the upcoming studio project with its confirmed title 'Dancing With the Devil...The Art of Starting Over'.
According to representatives, it’s a “deeply personal album” and is executive produced by Lovato and her manager, Scooter Braun. Here's all you need to know about the new album below.
How to Live stream
It isn't clear yet which platforms Lovato's new album will stream on exactly. We will update this space when we have further info in the future.
'Dancing With the Devil... The Art of Starting Over' is scheduled for April 2, 2021. Meanwhile, before the album's release, fans can tune in to YouTube on March 23 to watch Lovato's documentary, which focuses on the artist's struggle with addiction, particularly her 2018 overdose.
To share the concept of Lovato's new album, one would have to discuss her upcoming documentary with the similar title 'Dancing With the Devil'. Lovato stated that the original moniker was just 'The Art of Starting Over' but she later decided to give it a double title to reflect the importance of her documentary, expressing that it coincides with her life's story.
“If you listen to it track by track, if you follow the tracklisting, it’s kind of actually like the non-official soundtrack to the documentary," Lovato said, according to Variety. "Because it really does follow my life over the past couple of years." She added, “When we went through the tracklisting and kind of mapped out how it kind of coincided with my life’s story, it made sense to add the more emotional stuff in the beginning and then transition into ‘The Art of Starting Over.'”
When it comes to the album's tone, the singer explained that it is a blend of genres, including country, R&B and '90s pop. Furthermore, the project will contain 19 tracks with three bonus songs, while reports have suggested we may get an Ariana Grande collab among three teased collaborative songs. 'Dancing with the Devil…The Art of Starting Over' will feature the song “Anyone,” which Lovato performed at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
'Dancing With the Devil... The Art of Starting Over' will mark the first full-length album by Lovato since 2017. It follows her sixth studio project 'Tell Me You Love Me' which released in September of that year. Since then, she has released on EP 'Spotify Singles' and a number of singles, including the 2018 hit 'Sober', 2020's 'Commander in Chief', 'I Love Me', and the collaborations 'OK Not to Be OK' with Marshmello and 'I'm Ready' with Sam Smith.
Lovato has shared a new animated cover art for the album on her Instagram. Check it out below.
