Demi Lovato Releases New Single ‘Dancing With The Devil’

Ahead of the release of her new album, global superstar Demi Lovato has released an unapologetically honest new song, 'Dancing with the Devil'.

The single is the title track from her new album Dancing with the Devil...The Art of Starting Over, which is due out April 2. The new single is now available globally to download and stream. Listen to "Dancing with the Devil" here. Pre-order Dancing with the Devil...The Art of Starting Over here.

Written by an all-star group of musicians including Lovato, Bianca Deiandra Atterberry, John Ho, Mitchell Allan Scherr, “Dancing with the Devil” confronts Lovato’s own struggles with substance abuse that led to her 2018 near fatal overdose, as Lovato sings:

It’s just a little white line, I’ll be fine
But soon that little white line is a little glass pipe
Tinfoil remedy, almost got the best of me
I keep prayin’ I don’t reach the end of my lifetime
Twisted reality, hopeless insanity
I told you I was okay but I was lyin’
I was dancin’ with the devil, out of control
Almost made it to heaven, it was closer than you know
Playin’ with the enemy, gamblin’ with my soul
It’s so hard to say no, when you’re dancin’ with the devil

In addition to being the title track off the forthcoming album, Dancing with the Devil is the title song for Lovato’s YouTube Originals documentary “Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil.” The four-part event opened the 2021 SxSW festival and is an honest look back at some of the most trying times in Lovato’s life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health. For the first time, Lovato opens up about every aspect that led to her nearly fatal overdose in 2018, and her awakenings in the aftermath as viewers are granted unprecedented access to the hugely talented superstar’s personal and musical journey over the past three years, including footage from when the initial production for this project began during Lovato’s 2018 Tell Me You Love Me World Tour. The docuseries is a follow up to her wildly popular 2017 YouTube Originals documentary "Simply Complicated,” which now has more than 35M views on YouTube.
