Demi Lovato is “Sorry Not Sorry” about her latest album — and the honesty she’s singing about.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Lovato proves she can sing, and she’s holding nothing back.
“I wanted to make sure that this album showcased my voice,” explained Lovato, whose new album, Tell Me You Love Me, drops on Sept. 29. She already released “Sorry Not Sorry,” the unofficial singles anthem of the summer, along with the title-track “Tell Me You Love,”, “Sexy Dirty Love” and “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore.” The songs so far showcase Lovato’s powerful vocals, and a change in her sound.
“I think what’ll surprise fans the most for this new album is how R&B I’m going,” Lovato said. Besides this journey into a different genre, Lovato is bring a refreshing honesty to her songs and speaking out on her love life in “unprecedented ways.”
“I have never really been so honest,” Lovato explained. “You can just hear it through the lyrics. I think my fans are gonna know exactly who I’m talking about.”
Lovato split from actor Wilmer Valderrama after six years in June 2016, so it’s safe to say that these songs will probably reflect that relationship and subsequent split. Along with the new album, Lovato will also release a feature-length Youtube documentary following the behind-the-scenes making of her album, her activism and her philanthropy. The film, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, will air on Oct. 12.
“It’s definitely a challenge, because you just want to be completely open and free, and when you have cameras on you, you don’t feel like you can do that,” she said about filming in her creative space. “But you get used to it. And once you get past that mentality, you forget the cameras are there and you’re able to be completely vulnerable.”
Lovato’s last album, Confident, was released in 2015, but fans won’t have to wait another two years after this new release to hear new music.
“If you create another song that you like, you put out another song,” she explained in her interview, saying that it will be a “living album.” This means that “it can just be added to the mass of music that you’ve already released.”
Time to get hyped for Lovato’s latest evolution.
