Demi Lovato shares rock version of ‘Cool for the Summer’


Demi Lovato is sharing a rock version of one of her biggest pop hits. The new, edgier version of “Cool for the Summer (Rock Version)” features re-recorded vocals and updated production. The original version of “Cool for the Summer” was released eight years ago as the lead single from Lovato’s fifth studio album, Confident. The song went 3x Platinum and peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club chart.

The release of “Cool for the Summer (Rock Version)” marks the second of Lovato’s hit songs that has been re-recorded with a rock twist; earlier this year, Lovato released “Heart Attack (Rock Version)” in celebration of the original track’s ten year anniversary.  Lovato has performed rock versions of both tracks on her 2022 Holy Fvck Tour, in support of her album of the same name. Holy Fvck saw Lovato return to her rock and pop-punk roots and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, and Top Alternative Albums.
