GRAMMY-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato has released “Sorry Not Sorry (Rock Version)” featuring Slash – listen HERE. The release comes alongside the announcement of her upcoming album REVAMPED featuring rock versions of her hit songs, out September 15. Watch the album trailer HERE.
“Sorry Not Sorry (Rock Version)” features energetic new vocals and updated production from Warren ‘Oak’ Felder, Keith "Ten4" Sorrells, and Alex Nice, turning the iconic hit into an electrifying new smash. Legendary guitarist Slash of Guns N’ Roses, often heralded as the greatest guitarist of all time, provides razor-sharp guitar riffs and a high-intensity solo fit for the revamped version of the song. “Sorry Not Sorry” was originally released six years ago as the lead single from Demi’s sixth studio album, Tell Me You Love Me. The song became Demi’s fourth top 10 hit and highest charting single on the Billboard Hot 100, and has since been certified 5x platinum. “Sorry Not Sorry (Rock Version)” follows the release of “Heart Attack (Rock Version)” and “Cool for the Summer (Rock Version),” with much more to come on REVAMPED.
With all new vocals and production, the 10-track album REVAMPED sees Demi reimagine her career-defining songs with a fresh perspective that reflects her current artistic vision. The re-recorded music showcases Demi’s artistic growth and versatility, as she seamlessly evolves her songs from pop to rock while maintaining her signature powerhouse vocals. The album is now available to pre-order and pre-save.
Speaking on the new song, Demi said “Slash is an iconic artist who I’ve been a fan of for years, it’s an absolute honor to have such a legend like him on the rock version of ‘Sorry not Sorry’.” Demi continued, “With REVAMPED, I wanted to pay homage to the songs that resonated the most with fans and played a big role in my career by breathing an exciting new life into them. Creating this project has been incredibly fun and allowed me to express my passion for rock music in a new way, and I feel so much closer to my older music because of it. I can’t wait for everyone to hear more!”
Demi first performed rock versions of some of the songs featured on REVAMPED on her 2022 HOLY FVCK Tour, which was in support of her album of the same name. Demi’s all-female band on the HOLY FVCK Tour also included Nita Strauss, one of rock music’s most admired guitarists. The critically acclaimed HOLY FVCK, which featured singles “29,” “SUBSTANCE,” and SKIN OF MY TEETH,” saw Demi return to her rock and pop-punk roots and included features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara. The album debuted at #1 on three separate Billboard charts: Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, and Top Alternative Albums, and earned her a 2023 GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Music Artist.
