The singer also explains why "Cool For The Summer" almost wasn't her new album's lead single.
Demi Lovato’s fifth studio album, Confident, is due out on Oct. 16, which the pop star revealed last week when some of her famous friends helped her revealed the new full-length’s track list. One of the as-yet-unheard songs on the album is titled “Father,” dedicated to her late father Patrick, and Lovato told Billboard during her Pop Shop Podcast appearance that the song is going to be the one to surprise fans the most.
“The last song that I recorded [for the album] was called ‘Father,’ and I’m particularly excited for this song,” says Lovato. “I get very, very honest about the passing of my dad. My fans expect me to be honest, [but] what I think that people in general aren’t going to expect is the way that I sing the song. I took it more to a soulful, gospel kind of sound, and it’s the song that I think I might be most proud of on the album.”
