Demi Lovato has not ruled out recording a rock version of “Cool for the Summer.”
The pop song was well-liked when it was released and even more so when it became a popular TikTok dance song. However, another version should be welcomed.
The 30-year-old actress recently released her heavy rock album “HOLY FVCK,” and she has stated that she is open to re-recording her 2015 pop smash “Confident” in the style of the new genre she has fallen in love with.
In a new edition of ELLE’s “Song Association” series, she stated that fans may never know what she will do in the future. This means that fans should keep an eye out.
Lovato stated upon the album’s release that recording it gave her the freedom to express herself in ways she never thought possible, and that the entire process was cathartic and exciting. She also stated that she felt she was able to regain the artist she is on her follow-up to 2021’s “Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over.”
On Twitter, she told her fans:
“HOLY FVCK gave me the freedom to express myself in ways I didn’t know were possible and find joy I’d been missing when making music. It’s cathartic and grounded, but also exciting and a ton of fun.”
“I don’t know where I’ll be in a year, five years, or ten years, but I do know that this record is precisely where I am right now, and I am damn proud of it. I hope so for everyone who listens.”
However, the singer stated in a recent interview that she has no immediate plans to revisit the previous album because, while she enjoyed making it and is proud of it, she feels there isn’t much of her in it.
She described the lyrics as “extremely honest.” She has, however, outgrown it. She no longer enjoys performing and listening to music, but that does not mean she dislikes what she did.
Lovato admitted that she used to chase radio singles and had lost sight of who she is as an artist.
When performing the songs live, the “29” singer was “miserable,” and she despised wearing leotards and heels because they were not her style.
In another conversation, she stated that when she began her first two albums, she felt that her instincts were correct and that she was creating music that she adored. However, she found herself deviating from her instincts because she wanted to drop songs that could also be played on the radio. She claimed that she lost her identity as an artist as a result of not doing what she truly desired in favor of doing something she also liked (relatively), which was to release music that could be mainstream and it was not representative of who she was on the inside.
This conundrum also has an impact on how she dresses and behaves. She’s had enough of such quandaries.
