Demi Lovato has unveiled more details about her forthcoming studio album Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over in a recent interview with the New York Times. The album, out April 2, will feature three collaborations with female artists – one of which is the long-rumored teaming up between Lovato and Ariana Grande.
Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over was announced by Lovato on a ‘Clubhouse’ livestream earlier this week. The 19-track project is the singer’s first full-length project since 2017’s Tell Me You Love Me, and the one she says she’s most proud of.
The album will feature the previously released single “Anyone,” which Lovato performed at the 2020 Grammy Awards to critical acclaim, and the Sam Fischer-assisted “What Other People Say.” The third Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over single “Dancing With The Devil” will be released on March 26.
“Dancing With The Devil” is also featured in the trailer for Lovato’s upcoming documentary Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil premiering March 23 on YouTube, and made its theatrical premiere at the opening night of the SXSW Film Festival.
“Demi, with her platform and huge following, taking that jump—it’s obviously a nerve-racking thing to lay it all out there for the whole world, and she was willing to do that,” shared executive producer Michael D. Ratner during the film’s Q&A. “I think that’s the reason why this documentary is so powerful and compelling.”
The four-part documentary explores Lovato’s path to healing and navigating life following her 2018 overdose that nearly took her life. The multi-platinum selling musician is an executive producer on the project alongside Scooter Braun, her manager. The final episode of Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil will be released on April 6.
Of the album, Lovato said: “If you listen to it track by track, if you follow the tracklisting, it’s kind of actually like the non-official soundtrack to the documentary. Because it really does follow my life over the past couple of years. When we went through the tracklisting and kind of mapped out how it kind of coincided with my life’s story, it made sense to add the more emotional stuff in the beginning and then transition into ‘The Art of Starting Over.’”
Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over is out on April 2 and can be pre-ordered here.
