Demi Lovato releases new pop-punk single ‘Substance’ and reveals ‘Holy Fvck’ tracklist

"I want this song to make you feel like you’re having a damn good time"

Demi Lovato has shared a new song called ‘Substance’ – scroll down to listen to it below.

The pop-punk track serves as the second preview of the singer’s eighth studio album ‘Holy Fvck’, which is due for release on August 19 via Island. Lead single ‘Skin Of My Teeth’ arrived last month.

“I’m so excited to share another taste of what’s in store for this album,” Lovato explained of ‘Substance’ in a statement.


“We can all relate to searching for something more in life, and I want this song to make you feel like you’re having a damn good time while doing it.”

In keeping with the new single’s sound, its official Cody Critcheloe-directed video, which you can view below, pays homage to pop-punk music videos from the late 1990s and early 2000s, “but with a modern twist”.

Lovato has also shared the full tracklist for ‘Holy Fvck’, which features collaborations with Yungblud (‘Freak’), Royal & The Serpent (‘Eat Me’), and Dead Sara (‘Help Me’). Other song titles include ’29’, ‘Heaven’, ‘City Of Angels’ and ‘4 Ever 4 Me’.

“‘Holy Fvck’ takes me back to my roots,” Lovato wrote on Instagram while sharing the LP’s back cover. “It’s a body of work that’s unapologetically me, and I can’t wait to perform it on tour for you!”
