Demi Lovato is getting ready to go back to rock with their eighth album, “HOLY FVCK.” Here’s what we know about the album so far, including the tracklist and the singles “Skin of My Teeth” and “Substance.”
From the trailer for Demi Lovato’s new album, we can expect a lot of emotional ups and downs.
The video starts out with a dramatic scene of a pale man turning on a camcorder. Then, we see glimpses of how Lovato’s new album, HOLY FVCK, was made, including lyrics from her Notes app and sounds from the studio.
The lead single “Skin of My Teeth,” which will be released on June 10, is a pop-punk song. At the end of the 30-second clip, we see the singer sitting alone in a tub, brooding in silence. This is the opposite of a creative atmosphere. Demi fans may experience both extremes of loneliness and elation, as well as everything in between, and Lovato wouldn’t want it any other way.
The two-time GRAMMY nominees will release HOLY FVCK on August 19, which will be the start of the next phase of their sharp and raw body of work. Here is all the information about the album that GRAMMY.com could find.
Lovato Called The Album “So Representative Of Me”
Before announcing the album officially on June 6, Lovato gave fans a sneak peek in April through her Instagram story.
They said, “I’m getting emotional when I listen to my new album because I’m so proud of it.” “It’s my best work so far and really shows where I came from and who I am now.”
Lovato Held An Impromptu Funeral For Their Pop Era
In January, the singer posted a picture of herself with members of their team, such as their manager Scooter Braun and executives from Island Records.
Lovato turned off the camera and wrote in the caption, “A funeral for my pop music.” This was a way of saying goodbye to their past and looking forward to a bright future.
(The photo is now the first of only 32 posts on Lovato’s Instagram page, which is another step away from their past.)
Lovato Introduced HOLY FVCK With A Statement
In a public statement, Lovato talked about how making HOLY FVCK was a fun and rewarding process.
They wrote, “The process of making this album has been the most satisfying so far, and I’m grateful to my fans and collaborators for being with me on this journey.” “I’ve never been more sure of myself and my music than I am now, and this record proves it. “Thank you to my Lovatics who have been with me since the beginning and to those who are just joining us now,” Lovato said. “This is your record.”
“Skin Of My Teeth” Will Drop June 10
Before she announced the whole album, Lovato said that the first single, “Skin of My Teeth,” will come out on June 10. First, they posted a sneaky selfie video on TikTok that had fake newspaper headlines like “Demi Leaves Rehab Again!” and “Freak Demi Lovato Screams Eat Me to Paparazzi.”
Lovato will play the song for the first time on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” the night before the song comes out.
The Album Features Pop-Punk Single “Substance”
Lovato released the pop-punk song “Substance” from HOLY FVCK on Friday, July 15. The song’s lyrics (“Got high/It only left me lonely and loveless”) and rowdy music video have anti-drug messages (“Got high/It only left me lonely and loveless”).
The Album Features Collaborations With Pop-Punk & Rock Artists
Lovato released the full tracklist for HOLY FVCK on Friday, July 15. It includes collaborations with pop-punk and rock artists like Yungblud (“Freak”) and Dead Sara (“Help Me”), as well as an indie pop singer/songwriter named Royal & The Serpent (“Eat Me”).
There’s A Song Called “Happy Ending” Dealing With Addiction
As heard in an Instagram story, the song says, “Sure, I’m clean now, and everyone’s proud, but I miss my vices.” “Am I going to die trying to figure out how my story ends up well?”
The Album Cover Features Latex And Bondage
Lovato showed the album trailer and the sinful cover art, which included a pillow with a crucifix on it, at the same time.
Lovato Has Scheduled Their First Tour In Four Years
The HOLY FVCK Tour will start in late August with shows in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile as part of the South American leg.
Then, on September 22, it will go to 24 cities in North America, including San Francisco, Boston, and Atlanta. It will start at the Hard Rock Live Sacramento in Wheatland, California.
(Lovato will also play at the Illinois State Fair on August 13 and the Iowa State Fair on August 14.) This is right before HOLY FVCK comes out.
The tour will have support from DEAD SARA and Royal & the Serpent, and tickets go on sale on June 10 at 10 a.m. local time.
Yes, HOLY FVCK Will Be Uncompromising
Lovato posted a teaser video on TikTok that said HOLY FVCK is “rock ‘n’ roll,” but more importantly, it’s a new start. “People are mad at me because I live my truth,” they said. “And I’m fine with it,” he said.
