More music from Demi Lovato? The singer may be taking a new approach to music with her new era.
“A funeral for my pop music,” the Camp Rock alum captioned a January 2022 Instagram post, which showed her sitting alongside members of her team.
Rumors that Demi may be working on their eighth studio album — a follow-up to the April 2021 record Dancing With the Devil … The Art of Starting Over — first started swirling in August 2021 when she teased “big things coming” with fellow artist G-Eazy.
In multiple Instagram photos, the former Disney Channel star posed alongside the “Him & I” crooner, noting that she was “excited” about an upcoming project at the time. Their song “Breakdown” was then released along with the Netflix reality show, Titletown High.
Although Demi did make a song with G-Eazy, the Sonny With a Chance alum set the record straight about new songs via Instagram Stories in September 2021. While answering fan questions, she revealed that she was down to collaborate with Lizzo in 2022. She also shared that, along with music, her hobbies have become “photography and candle making.”
Demi started making music following her start on Disney Channel. Her debut record, Don’t Forget, was released in 2008 and she’s dropped six other albums since then. Following the release of Tell Me You Love Me in 2017, Demi took a brief break from music. She returned in 2021 with her seventh album, Dancing With the Devil … The Art of Starting Over, which accompanied a YouTube docuseries titled Dancing With the Devil.
“What you can expect from the album is me best, like, identifying with myself as an artist,” she explained on The Zach Sang Show in April 2021. “You know, more so than I ever have in my life before, and to just keep working, to keep writing. To never stop because, who knows. This might not be the only music project I release this year.”
Prior to the release, Demi shared her favorite part about making a new record via Instagram Stories. “You know what’s great about making an album?” Demi wrote in June 2020. “You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.”
That being said, the “Skyscraper” musician made it her mission to tell the truth with her music going forward.
“When I look back at music in the past that was more hesitant to be as open as I am today, I feel like I just robbed myself of vulnerability in some of those songs,” she told The New York Times in March 2021.
