Singer songwriter Demi Lovato has rush released her new single from her upcoming album. “Heart Attack” hit the web last night and was quickly sent to iTunes to curve any damages incurred with leaks. Today, the Lovato team also posted the audio to the official YouTube account. Originally the song was set to be released March 4th.
“Heart Attack” gives fans an idea of what can be expected on her as of yet untitled fourth album expected for to be released in Spring 2013. In the October 2012 issue of Teen Vogue, the 20 year old singer said she was “tired of all the dubstep that is on the radio right now” and wants to present songs that “people will listen to for a while.” Lovato says she feels like she’s growing and wants her music to grow with her. She’d also taken to her Twitter account last April to say “there’s NO holding back.”
Demi’s new track features heavy drum programming with heart on sleeve lyrics about uncertainty and a lack of confidence in a new love prospect. Demi writes about taking a risk falling in love. “You make me glow/ But I cover up won’t let it show/ So I’m putting my defenses up ‘cos I don’t wanna fall in love/ If I ever did that I think I’d have a heart attack” she writes. “Never break a sweat for the other guys/ When you come around I get paralyzed/ Every time I try to be myself/ It comes out wrong like a cry for help” she continues. Wanting to paint her nails and put high heels on, she wants to be girly for the guy in her sights.
What Lovato never fails to do is miss a note. Soaring vocals on “Heart Attack” are somewhat reminiscent to those of Kelly Clarkson, an artist she also admires. Filled with vocal gymnastics, Demi runs through the song with riffs effortlessly with the most powerful notes coming during the bridge as she’s “flying too close to the sun” and bursting “into flames.”
Demi Lovato’s previous single “Give Your Heart A Break” rose to the top of the Pop charts after it’s January 2012 release. It gained major airplay during the summer and sustained its radio presence. Another single from her R&B influenced album “Unbroken” was not released. The lead single “Skyscraper” was her testament to strength as she recovered from mental health issues.
