Demi Lovato is ready to return to music. In a new interview with New Music Daily with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, she opened up about the brand new song she’s performing at Grammys 2020, a song that was written four days before her apparent overdose.
As Demi revealed to Zane, the track is titled “Anyone,” and she described it as a heavy and emotional look at her mindset in the summer of 2018. “At the time when I was recording it, I almost listened back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help,” she said. “And you kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, how did nobody listened to this song and think, ‘Let’s help this girl.'”
Demi continued, noting that she had decided on sharing the song while still in the hospital. “I remember being in the hospital and listening to the song and it was about a week after I had been in the hospital and I was finally like awake, and I just remember hearing back the songs I had just recorded and thinking, ‘If there’s ever a moment where I get to come back from this, I want to sing this song,'” she explained.
The Grammys performance comes just days before Demi is scheduled to perform the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, and as she shared with Zane, fans will likely hear even more from her. She confirmed that more new material is coming after the release of “Anyone,” saying, “I think as time goes on, I’m going to tell more and more about it. With the next song that I have coming out I think I tell more of the story. With this one it just kind of tells you a little bit about where I was right before and right afterwards.”
Admitting that she is excited to share more new music with fans, Demi further hinted at possible musical collaborations with other artists. Although she didn’t confirm any names, she anticipated that 2020 would be a big year for her. Prepare yourself accordingly, Lovatics.
