Speaking to Rolling Stone about their new music, Demi said: “I would say it’s a new era. I’m constantly evolving, constantly evolving. I’d like to put the rest of my music behind me and start from scratch in this new era for this next album. It was a label reunion. We happened to be all in black and I was like, ‘Wow, this is like a funeral for my pop music.’ There was no proper funeral.”
As for whether Demi is returning to his “rock and emo days”, the 29-year-old confirmed that he is. They said, “That, but better. And also, there’s a bit of…and when I say heaviness, I don’t mean lyrically, but heaviness like in some sounds that I’ve never done before, which is exciting. It’s a new era that’s reminiscent of my first era.”
Demi ended by saying, “I’m not changing with new music. I’m just going back to my roots!” In other words, it feels like we’re getting an upgraded version of Demi’s first two pop-rock eras. ‘La La Land’ 2.0 is coming!
