Demi Lovato attends Operation Smile's 11th annual Celebrity Ski & Smile Challenge presented by Alphapals, Barefoot Dreams and the St. Regis Deer Valley on April 01, 2023 in Park City, Utah.

Demi Lovato’s emo era is here to stay. The 30-year-old singer shared that she is going back to her rock roots with new music but finds a problem: she is too happy. Lovato has been in a relationship with fellow musician Jute$ since August.

She finds her happier lifestyle may make the lyrics challenging. “I definitely am in a really good place,” she said during a segment on CBS Mornings. “I don’t know what I’m going to write about on my next album because I’m so happy. It is a really good feeling, but I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Despite that, the singer says love will be one of the themes she will be exploring. “Def a bunch of sappy love songs for sure,” she added.

Elsewhere in the feature, Lovato says she “grew up listening to this music. And so I wanted to go back to my roots. Whether you’re going through depression or you’re having fun with your friends, there’s so many emotions that’s in this music. I think that this generation is hungry for it.”

Lovato said that emo music has something for everyone. “Whether it was angst, whether it’s falling in love, sadness, I always made music to become an inspiration to other people while also doing what I love,” she said.

For those who don’t know, emo bands emerged in the late ’90s and reached their peak around 2012. Bands like Panic! At The Disco, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance and A Day To Remember are just some of the bands who took over the alt-rock genre. From sappy acoustic to upbeat songs, the genre did indeed have something for everybody and dominated rock radio. The subgenre has had solid staying power, as proven by Lovato’s decision to record an emo album. But there’s a whole wave of nostalgia behind it. The When We Were Young festival features a lot of the biggest bands of the era.

Recently, Lovato re-recorded a rock version of her 2013 track “Heart Attack.”

Demi Lovato's Pop Punk ‘Skin of My Teeth’: Fans Love The Sound Change

Demi Lovato just released their new single, “Skin of My Teeth,” which sees the Grammy-nominated singer embracing their pop-rock sound they first emerged onto the music scene with and opening up about their struggle with addiction.

The guitar-heavy track showcases Lovato’s powerhouse vocals with lyrics, “I’m just tryin’ to keep my head above water / I’m your son and I’m your daughter / I’m your mother I’m your father / I’m just a product of the problem.”

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last night, Lovato admitted they were nervous to perform the new single, adding, “If you’re not nervous before you do something, you’re not passionate about it. It’s a part of living to be nervous about something you care about.”

The album marks the first release since last year's Dancing With The Devil, and Lovato says it’s been their most fulfilling album experience yet. “The process of making this album has been the most fulfilling yet and I’m grateful to my fans and collaborators for being on this journey with me. Never have I been more sure of myself and my music and this record speaks that for itself,” Lovato said in a statement. “To my Lovatics who have been rocking out with me since the beginning and those who are just now coming along for the ride, thank you. This record is for you.”
