Demi Lovato releases ‘Cool for the Summer’ rock version

New version available now

Grammy-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato has released “Cool for the Summer (Rock Version)” via Island Records.

The new version features edgier re-recorded vocals and updated production from Warren “Oak” Felder, Keith “Ten4” Sorrelles, and Alex Nice, giving the summer anthem a newfound intensity. “Cool for the Summer” was originally released eight years ago as the lead single from Lovato’s fifth studio album, Confident. The 3x Platinum track became an instant global hit, topping charts worldwide and peaking at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club chart.

The release marks the second signature song Lovato has updated to reflect her current sound. Earlier this year, she released “Heart Attack (Rock Version)” in celebration of the original track’s ten year anniversary which was met with praise from both fans and critics alike.

Lovato performed rock versions of both tracks on her 2022 Holy Fvck Tour which was in support of her album of the same name. The critically acclaimed Holy Fvck, which featured singles “29,” “Substance,” and “Skin of My Teeth,” saw Lovato return to her rock and pop-punk roots and included features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, and Top Alternative Albums.
