Demi Lovato has revealed that she's back in the studio working on new music. 

The Disney actress and singer recently admitted her struggle with bipolar disorder after completing a stint in rehab and explains that she wants to document her journey with a new album. Writing in her column for Seventeen magazine, she said:

"With my new album, I'm hoping to provide inspiration for girls everywhere who are going through the same issues I've faced. I think this will come through in a lot of the material."

"My first single is really special to me— to me it symbolizes my journey from the person I was to the happy healthy person I am today, and the fact that people are able to rise above anything, despite the odds."

Lovato added that songwriting has been somewhat cathartic for her and she can't to share her new material:

"I love being back in the studio! It's been very therapeutic to be able to express my feelings and talk about who I really am, through my music. It also helps that I've been lucky enough to work with such talented people on the record so far!"
