Demi Lovato just released yet another sample of their upcoming album, “Holy Fvck”, scheduled for August 19. After the success of “Skin of my Teeth“, the singer chose to promote the track “substance“, which arrived on platforms accompanied by a clip. The new single continues Lovato’s turn to rock, a genre he used to flirt with early in his career.
Introducing a new look, the artist sings about empty relationships that permeate today’s society and the internet. “I wanted to make a point that we live in a world that nothing is real anymore. There is a lot that is missing.” explained demi when releasing the tracklist from your disk.
Check out the music video, directed by Cody Critcheloe:
In the lyrics of “substance“, she questions the liquidity and exhaustion caused by the contemporary world. Last month, Lovato posted a video saying she was excited to release the song and that “maybe” this is her favorite track from the new album. With no makeup or filters, she said: “It’s a song about how we live in a world that lacks content, where there are so many false, pointless things that we focus on in our daily lives.”.
demi also made a self-criticism at the time: “I’ve been thinking to myself ‘how am I missing content?’ and maybe what I post on social media is the image of me that I put… it lacks content. I’m not talking to you guys about stuff, I’m just posting pretty pictures.”.
This Friday (15), the singer intends to fulfill an interview schedule, starting with a participation in the presenter’s program Jimmy Kimmel.
