Last month, Lovato announced a new single titled "Skin of My Teeth," which will be released alongside a music video on Friday — the day after its debut performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Produced by Warren "Oak" Felder and co-written by Lovato, Alex Nicefro, Keith Sorrells, Laura Veltz, and Aaron Puckett (a.k.a. lil aaron), the former Camp Rock star has recently teased several lyrics from "Skin of My Teeth" on social media. "I'm just trying to keep my head above water / I'm your son and I'm your daughter / I'm your mother, I'm your father / I'm just a product of the problem," they wrote on Twitter June 4 alongside several promotional photos and the single's pre-order link.

The "Stone Cold" singer previously offered fans a glimpse of what was to come on their Instagram Story, writing that they were "so proud" of their forthcoming new album. "Getting emotional listening to my new album because I'm so proud of it," they wrote. "It's my absolute best yet and so representative of me, where I started and who I am today." They continued, "Yesterday I posted a song called 'Happy Ending' and even tho I wrote this in an incredibly dark place, I'm so grateful I'm no longer in that low, cold and lonely place... I'm sure that no matter what happens in my life...my happy ending is never having to fall into old habits again." Demi Lovato.

They later told Rolling Stone that fans can expect to hear some "heaviness" in their new sound. "It's a new era reminiscent of my first era," they said. "I'm ever-evolving, ever-changing. I'd like to put the rest of my music behind me and start fresh in this new era for this next album — but I do that every album cycle."
