New original song released for Scream VI
Demi Lovato has released “Still Alive,” her new original song for the upcoming horror film Scream VI from Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group.
The high energy track arrives alongside the aptly aesthetic music video. The visual sees the world of the film invade reality when Lovato and her friends attend a private screening of the film, only to find themselves being hunted by Ghostface himself. Lovato assumes the iconic role of “Final Girl” as she faces off with her assailant in the video’s final act. The video was directed by Jensen Noen and features cameos from Mike Shinoda and Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills). The song was written by Lovato, Shinoda, and Laura Veltz. The video made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.
“I couldn’t think of a more perfect home for ‘Still Alive’ than within the Scream universe. I’m a huge fan of the films, so it’s an honor to contribute to such an iconic horror franchise,” states Lovato.
“Still Alive” plays at the start of the film’s final credits and marks the first taste of new music from Lovato since the release of last year’s Holy Fvck. The critically acclaimed album, 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 three separate Billboard charts — Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Alternative Albums.
Scream VI follows the surviving cast members from last year’s film as they leave behind Woodsboro and the Ghostface killings to start a fresh chapter. Scream VI will be released in theatres worldwide by Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group on March 10th.
