I don’t know if it’s just me but this song has made me so sad and emotional. Demi Lovato has just released her new song ‘Sober‘ and I think we’re all shocked, saddened but have the upmost sympathy for her.
In this song she confesses that she has unfortunately relapsed in her sobriety journey which many people also struggle with. You can really hear the emotion, pain and disappointment in this song and can’t help but tear up. She made sure the song was very stripped back with a huge focus on the piano and that’s also reflected in the cover for the single she chose where she has very natural hair and little to no makeup.
She ends the song with what seems to be a promise to herself, her family and her fans; ‘I’m sorry that I’m here again, I promise that I’ll get help. It wasn’t my intention, I’m sorry to myself.’ I really think it was so brave for her to come out and admit this in the only way she knows how…music.
