Interview under! + BEAUTIFUL CLOSEUP IMAGES of Demi’s face! Via @lovanas. ay have pop anthems, empowering ballads and songs made to rule summer radio, but more importantly, Demi Lovato’s self-titled fourth album is filled with honesty.
‘Not only does it draw up different emotions because there are songs about heartbreak and there are songs of just wanting to hook up. And you never want the person you wrote about to hear that song and feel bad. I never want that to happen. But at the same time, it’s coming from a personal experience, and if it turns out to be a great song and you’re like, ‘Well, sorry.’
There are songs that are pretty self-explanatory on this album and when I played those songs in front of other people I almost felt, like, naked,” Lovato said. “There were several times I had to leave the room. ‘Shouldn’t Come Back’ was one track she had a particularly hard time laying down the vocals for, as it brought to light so many different emotions. And as it turns out, parts of the song were improv.
I was sobbing because it was built-up emotion that I was finally getting to release in music. And there was a turning point in the song, it was originally about one thing and then ..I just kind of freestyled the lyrics and I just changed the song completely. And my producers were like ‘Woah, that just got heavy.’ Songwriting is like taking your top off.’
