Demi is returning to rock music. Pop star Demi Lovato has announced their new album, the rock-focused HOLY FVCK, and shared a suggestive image that comprises the album artwork.
The singer also previewed a portion of HOLY FVCK‘s “Skin of My Teeth” in a video trailer for the album. The led single arrives on Friday (July 10).

Lovato, 29, first emerged as a child star before releasing their debut album, Don’t Forget, in 2008. That effort had a pop-rock sound, as did 2009’s Here We Go Again. But Lovato has spent the last decade traversing pop and dance territory in their five most recent studio efforts.
Now, Lovato is back to rockin’.
“The process of making this album has been the most fulfilling yet, and I’m grateful to my fans and collaborators for being on this journey with me,” Lovato said in a statement obtained by Rolling Stone.
“Never have I been more sure of myself and my music, and this record speaks that for itself,” the musician continued. “To my Lovatics who have been rocking out with me since the beginning and those who are just now coming along for the ride, thank you. This record is for you.”
In 2020, Lovato contributed to a version of All Time Low’s “Monsters” with blackbear. Before that, they released a Travis Barker-assisted “emo version” of one of their pop songs. As a fan, Lovato’s love for old-school emo and metalcore is well documented.
HOLY FVCK arrives Aug. 19; pre-orders are available now. There is an electronic band from Canada called Holy Fuck.
