Demi Lovato released the art work for her new single, “Skyscraper,” over the weekend. It marks the beginning of Demi’s musical comeback after she was released from treatment earlier this year. She’s already got a music video in the bag (she tweeted that news recently) and the beachy cover art for the song, to us at least, signifies a more adult step in Demi’s career.
A rep for the singer said more information regarding the track will be coming down the pipeline later this week, but Demi has already given hints as to what the song might sound like. While she looks like she might be leaning toward the adult contemporary country sounds of Shania Twain, Demi certainly isn’t ready for that step in her life. At least that’s what we’re inferring from an interview the singer gave us last year.
Demi’s big voice could be nearly perfect for any style of music, but last summer the singer told MTV News she wanted to try more urban music for her next album, which she had already started at the time. “I’m now just taking that next step and learning how to make my music more radio-friendly but also stay very artistic, and for me that’s R&B,” she said. “I can put my vocal stylings on songs that are R&B and it showcases my vocals more than just singing really loud on a rock song.”
She even had some dream collabos in mind, tossing around Trey “I Invented Sex” Songz and Drake as names she’d like to make appearances on the album. It’s really just a matter of time before her fans actually know what’s in store, but the fact that many former Disney stars to try their hand at pop’n'b (we’re looking at you, Joe Jonas), makes us think it might be the perfect step for her to branch out.
