One day after her ballad “Skyscraper” notched a Top 10 debut on the Hot 100, Demi Lovato announced a Sept. 20 release date for her third album on Thursday (July 21) during a live video chat on Cambio.
“September 20! Exactly a month after my birthday!” Lovato exclaimed in the chat. When asked about a follow-up single, the teen star replied, “I’ve actually recorded about like 20-something songs, so we have to cut it down to fit the album, and then we’ll choose the next single.”
Lovato also hinted at an upcoming tour in support of the still-untitled album: “If I was to tour, I would announce it soon and maybe, possibly, I’m in the works of putting together a tour. Maybe. And maybe it’ll be all around the world.”
Demi Lovato Releases Somber ‘Skyscraper’ Single: Listen
The album news arrives after Lovato released the somber new single “Skyscraper” on July 12, and a sparse music video for the track was released days later. “Skyscraper” showcases the 19-year-old singer’s resilience after she entered a treatment facility for “physical and emotional issues” late last year.
“Skyscraper” also gave Lovato her highest career debut on the Hot 100 when it entered the chart this week at No. 10. Her first chart entry, “This Is Me” with Joe Jonas, debuted at No. 11 and peaked at No. 9 in July 2008.
