The former 'Sonny with a Chance' star shows more mature image in the artwork of her upcoming studio album.
One day after having an early birthday celebration, Demi Lovato unwrapped the first page of her new album "Unbroken". She's seen distancing herself from her image as Disney's child actress by showing more mature image. In the cover art, she wears a fur ensemble and applies a dark-colored lipstick.
The unveiling of the cover art seems to be Demi's way to thank fans for sending her birthday wishes. "I have THE BEST FANS EVER!!! Thank you so much for all the early Birthday wishes," she tweeted. "To show my appreciation I thought I would give you a little present...look closely!!!"
The album is scheduled to make its way out in the United States on September 20. It has already been preceded by its lead single "Skyscraper" which peaked at No. 10 on Billboard Hot 200. Details about other tracks in the album remain scarce, but rumor suggested she has hit studio with Missy Elliott and Timbaland.
The report was sort of confirmed by Ryan Tedder who helps Demi finish the album. "There's even like a little rap feature on it," he said. "She's got a couple features on this album, one in particular that is going to shock everybody. I was like, 'How did you get this person? They're impossible to get and you got them!' "
The OneRepublic frontman also praised the former "Sonny with a Chance" star. He gushed, "Demi blew me out of the water vocally! I had no idea how good her voice is. She's one of the best singers I've ever worked with. Literally, that good...I mean, she's a Kelly Clarkson-level vocalist. And Kelly has a set of pipes."
Lovato indeed delivered a solid vocal performance at Do Something Awards recently. Wearing a long dress, she was introduced by Kim Kardashian before belting out the emotional lyrics of newly-released "Skyscraper". At the event, she brought home Best Charity Song for her duet with Joe Jonas in "Make a Wave".
The "Camp Rock" actress recently celebrated the victory by tweeting her ex-boyfriend, "@joejonas Yayy! We won :)" The Jonas Brothers member replied her with the same enthusiasm, "Wow! @ddlovato Congrats dem! Super awesome!!"
