19 AUGUST 2022 (TORONTO) – GRAMMY-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato has released their highly-anticipated 8th studio album HOLY FVCK via Island Records. LISTEN HERE.
“When making HOLY FVCK, I wanted to explore the dichotomy between ideas and feelings we all face: good & bad, holy & evil and anger & love. The album is a deeply personal journey that begins with pain and anger and concludes with me reclaiming my power. It gave me the freedom to express myself in ways I didn’t know were possible and find joy I’d been missing when making music. It’s cathartic and grounded, yet exhilarating and a hell of a good time. I don’t know where I’ll be in life in a year, or in five or 10 years – but what I do know is that this record is exactly where I am now, and I am damn proud of it. I hope everyone who listens is too,” states Demi.
The 16-track album is a sonic journey grounded in their rock and pop-punk roots and illustrates an earnest yet tongue-in-cheek retrospective of their life experiences. HOLY FVCK includes previously released songs “29,” “SUBSTANCE,” SKIN OF MY TEETH,” and features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara. Full tracklisting below.
Ahead of the release Demi appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a three-night takeover. The takeover included a performance of their new single “29,” and “SUBSTANCE.” Demi also took on co-hosting duties for the August 17episode, joining Jimmy for the monologue, guest interviews, and more. Demi will stop by Good Morning America, this morning, for their Summer Concert Series in Central Park.
Additionally, Demi will bring the album to fans across South America and North America this Fall on their HOLY FVCK Tour. Fans can expect to hear new songs from the album as well as reimagined rock versions of their hits, including “Sorry Not Sorry,” “Cool for the Summer,” and more.
Produced by Live Nation, the 32-date tour kicked off this past Saturday at the Illinois State Fair. The tour will continue to South America with stops in Belo Horizonte, Bogotá, and more before hitting North America on Thursday, September 22 in Wheatland, CA at the Hard Rock Live Sacramento.
