Demi Lovato’s Confident - What You Need To Know
Disney princess no more, Demi Lovato is now a seasoned recording artist and releases her fifth album Confident today (you can preview and purchase it on the right-hand side of the page), here is everything you need to know about it...
A Little Background…
Lovato’s last album Demi hit shelves in spring of 2013 and she’s kept herself very busy in the two and a half years since. First she served as a judge on the third and final season of the US X-Factor, then she went on a gruelling world tour before returning to film a recurring role on the final season of Glee. She also found time to record tracks with The Vamps, Olly Murs and her old pal Nick Jonas before finally starting work on what would become Confident…
Who’s Producing It?
Lovato and her team have called in the big guns once again. Max Martin, the man behind so many of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry’s biggest hits, is on both ‘Confident’ and smash hit ‘Cool For The Summer’, while Steve Mac, who helped One Direction and The Wanted pen some of their biggest tunes, is on three songs.
There are also appearances from rising star Sara Michaels, singer Laleh, whose skillful hands are on three songs, and, of course, Ryan Tedder, the OneRepublic mainman, who is behind the desk on big ballad ‘Wildfire’.
Any Special Guests?
Two. Firstly Iggy Azalea who adds her distinctive southern fried hip-hop to ‘Kingdom Come’ and secondly frequent Skrillex collaborator Sirah, she features on ‘Waitin For You’.
What Does It Sound Like?
Make no mistake, this is a big glossy pop record, this is Lovato’s pitch to be in the same league as Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift. Every chorus is made for radio and big arenas.
Does It Deliver?
Damn straight. This is a big, unashamed collection of pop bangers. We can’t wait to see her do it live.
