Demi Lovato Opens Up About Title Track of Upcoming “Holy Fvck” Album

Demi Lovato is opening about the title track of her upcoming album…

The 29-year-old half-Mexican singer/actor teased their forthcoming album Holy Fvck during a call into the SiriusXM studios on Monday, July 18.

Demi Lovato“The title track of the album is called ‘Holy Fvck’ and the song was basically, I wanted to flip the phrase ‘holy f–k’ on its head. And instead of just saying ‘holy f–k,’ I wanted to write a song that says, ‘I’m a holy f–k,’” Lovato explained. “It’s definitely a sexually charged song, but it’s really fun.”

“I felt like it was a great, eye-catching title track for the rest of the album,” she continued, “and especially because there’s songs on the album that have, like, kind of religious undertones, there’s songs on the album that have this dichotomy of good and bad, and that song kind of represented both.”

Lovato also insisted their record label, Island Records, was immediately on board with idea despite its NSFW implications. “My label is so great and so supportive that, like, anything that I say goes,” the singer said. “Like, they’re really, really great to me and I know a lot of artists don’t have that so I’m really fortunate. I remember being the one asking questions, like, ‘Am I gonna be able to say this? And what do I say instead?’ And it’s just, like, look, it’s f–king rock and roll. Like, they’ll bleep you if they need to and if they don’t, even better.”

Set for release on August 19, Lovato’s upcoming eighth studio set has already been preceded by singles “Skin of My Teeth” and “Substance.”

Demi Lovato Releases New Single “Substance”

Demi Lovato is embracing the substance

The 29-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released their new song “Substance,” as well as the music video for the track.

Demi LovatoIt’s the second single off Lovato’s eighth studio album, Holy Fvck. The single was released on Friday (July 15) alongside with the video that feels just as angry as the song sounds — perfectly paving the way for Lovato’s fresh new era as a bona fide punk rocker. 

As she wails over full-throttle drums and guitars lifted straight from late ’90s/early 2000s emo rock hits, the video finds Lovato smashing a glass gold record plaque with a baseball bat, falling purposefully out the window of a skyscraper conference room and spray painting “Holy Fvck” onto a wall.

“So I ask myself: Am I the only one looking for substance?” they sing. “Got high, it only left me lonely and loveless/ Don’t wanna end up in a casket/ head full of maggots, body full of jack s–t/ I get an abundance/ Am I the only one looking for substance?”

The new single arrives just one day after the Grammy nominee unveiled the full tracklist for Holy Fvck.

In addition to “Substance” and lead single “Skin of My Teeth,” which Lovato released in June, the August 19-slated album includes 14 other tracks featuring collaborations with YungBlud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara.

Lovato has been in the process of launching an edgy new musical style since January, when she held a metaphorical funeral for the seven albums worth of pop music the “Cool For The Summer” singer made leading up to Holy Fvck. They’ve been steadily teasing bits and pieces of songs on the upcoming album on social media, and recently said in a statement: “Never have I been more sure of myself and my music, and this record speaks that for itself.”

“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,” they continued. “This record is for you.”

The singles just keep comin’ from Demi Lovato

Demi LovatoLovato revealed on that the upcoming album’s next single, “Substance,” will be arriving on July 15.

The star shared the news alongside the track’s abstract cover art, which features Lovato sitting at the base of a circular opening, as black sludge spills out.

“Substance” will arrive just a month after Lovato unveiled the album’s punk-leaning lead single, “Skin of My Teeth,” which features the singer belting over high-voltage guitar, “I’m alive by the skin of my teeth/ I survived when it got harder to breathe/ God d–n it I just wanna be free.”

Holy Fvck, their eighth studio album, will be released on August 19, 2022 via Island Records. The upcoming 16-track album will revisit Lovato’s rock and pop-punk roots and deliver a retrospective of their life experiences, according to a press release. “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,” they previously said of the album in a press statement. “Never have I been more sure of myself and my music, and this record speaks that for itself. To my Demi Lovato 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.”
