From many smiley roles on the Disney Channel through a box office pop career, Demi Lovato had plenty of expectations to subvert with the release of ‘Holy Fvck’ in 2022. The album’s rock-centric, cathartic approach served as something of a reset with both fans and critics, setting up ‘Revamped’, a collection of Lovato's biggest hits newly recast as rock songs.

The album achieves two important things. Firstly, it delivers on a question posed by ‘Holy Fvck’, namely what Lovato’s career would look like if this stylistic choice had been made back at the start. Secondly, ‘Revamped’ solidifies their rock rebrand and begins cementing them as someone to be taken seriously in alternative music. 

Tracks such as Cool For The Summer, which features a hefty breakdown for a former pop anthem, and Neon Lights, where Lovato recruits help from The Maine, work particularly well in their new arrangements.

Even La La Land, from their debut album ‘Don’t Forget’, graduates from juvenile musings to something of real weight.

‘Revamped’ is part of a second coming for Lovato, where they have the freedom to create whatever they want. If that’s indulging a sense of nostalgia, then so be it. Like it or not, they are much more than a former Disney star.
