Demi Lovato is heading back to a different kind of Camp Rock.
The 30-year-old singer has started releasing new rock versions of some of their classic hits, and now, they’ve announced that they’re releasing a full album of the songs.
Lovato first started playing their classic pop songs as new rock versions at live shows. “The fans loved it,” they said to Rolling Stone. “When I got home from tour, I was like, ‘Why don’t I just record those versions and release them?”
Now, they’ve done exactly that.
Lovato’s next studio album is a 10-track album called Revamped, and it features new, rock versions of ten of their biggest hits. So far, Lovato has released rock version of “Cool for the Summer” and “Heart Attack,” and today, they released a new version of “Sorry Not Sorry” that features a killer guitar solo from Slash.

“When we were thinking about who would sound fucking rad on this song, there’s only one person that came to mind, and that was Slash,” Lovato said.
Other songs that will be included on the album include “Tell Me You Love Me” and “Give Your Heart a Break,” which they performed for the first time in five years last week.
“Getting to perform [‘Give Your Heart a Break’] live after not performing it in so long felt really good. The crowd was happy, and that’s what it’s all about,” they said. “It has to come from inside: If you just think about what the audience wants, you sometimes ignore what your needs are, and it takes the fun out of it when you’re only catering to other people.”
Revamped will be released on September 15, and we can’t wait.
