Thanks to a pre-order link on iTunes, all 15 Confident tracks are available to stream in one-minute-and-30-second snippets. The cuts indicate Demi embracing new directions via trippy tracks tracks like opener "Old Ways" (which boasts a breakdown similar to the Grimes/Blood Diamond track "Go") while "Waiting for You" showcases a newfound aggressive attitude ("Yeah, I don't take things too personal / But you made shit personal / Talkin' bout my bad habits / Man, fuck my bad habits / Don't act like you don't got none," she growls).
But longtime Lovatics will also be happy to hear Dem's belts sounding bigger than ever on vocal-performance cuts like "For You," "Lionheart" and "Wildfire." They should also get their tissues ready for "Father," where the star wails about her complicated relationship with her estranged father who left their family after their parents divorced when Demi was a child.
The album sampler is the latest taste of Lovato's new music following her video premiere of standout "Stone Cold" on October 8. Confident drops on the 16th.
