After weeks of anticipation and excitement, Demi Lovato has finally released her new single! The single, entitled Skyscraper premiered on 'On Air with Ryan Seacrest' yesterday. Little information about the song has been released, until now, and we have learned that the song was written by Toby Gad, Kerli, and Lindy Robbins. Lovato stated on the interview with Ryan Seacrest that the song was actually recorded before she entered the treatment center, and revealed that she attempted to record the song, again after the 3-month rehabilation stint, but she decided that her vocals on the original version were better, as they were "kind of a cry for help".
Upon the release of the song, several celebrities took to twitter to voice their support, including Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, Pete Wentz, Ashley Tisdale, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Lucy Hale, Brittany Snow, Kerli (who co-wrote the song) as well as Jordin Sparks, who provided background vocals on the song.
A teaser for the official music video for the song, featuring Lovato in a desert was released on YouTube on July 8, and the full music video is scheduled to be released on July 13th at 7PM ET/PT and 11:30PM ET/PT on E!
