The rock-tinged "Cool for the Summer" is a blistering twist on the commercial hit. This is Lovato's second "rock remix" of one of her older tracks. Back in March, she previously shared a harder version of the 2013 hit "Heart Attack," which they worked on with Oak Felder, who produced their latest album Holy Fvck, as well as Mitch Allan, who collaborated on the original version.
Lovato's recent move to put a rock twist on heir pop tracks comes after the release of their eighth studio album Holy Fvck last year. To prepare for the record, Lovato told Alternative Press that they were "listening to Veruca Salt, Hole and The Donnas — women that were just breaking the mold."
“I feel like had I tried to do rock music a few years ago when I wasn't ready, it wouldn't have been authentic, but now it is,” they explained.
