Earlier this morning, singer Demi Lovato stopped by KIIS FM in Los Angeles to release her brand new single Sky Scraper on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show. The single is a brand new song off of her third upcoming album, and the star wrote the song after spending some time in a treatment center.
Demi wrote on Seventeen.Com about her new single saying:
Hey Guys! I can’t tell you how long I have been waiting to share this news with you! If you haven’t heard, the name of my new single is…SKYSCRAPER!! You can get it on iTunes starting tomorrow, July 12.
This song is so special to me because it’s inspired by my journey and the struggles that I’ve dealt with this past year. I hope people are able to relate to it and realize that they are able to rise above and overcome any obstacle, no matter the circumstances, and shine like a skyscraper. I am still on a personal journey dealing with my own issues each and every day, but the best advice I can give to anyone going through a rough patch is to never be afraid to ask for help.
Recording this song was such an amazing experience for me. It was such an incredible and emotional process, and I couldn’t have asked for a better producer to work with than Toby Gad. Toby is one of the sweetest people I know and I am so proud of the work we did together.
My biggest wish for this song is that it’s able to inspire others and urge them to keep moving forward no matter what the odds.
I hope you all love the song as much as I do!
Love, Demi Lovato

Demi wrote, “I started compulsively overeating at a very young age. And then I almost stopped eating altogether at the age of 12, after being harassed by kids at school, for being “fat”. My eating disorder will continue to affect me for the rest of my life, but I’m proud to say that I got the help I needed, and am now the happiest and healthiest I have ever been!
Eating disorders are serious and complex problems that affect millions of young men and women all over the world. But so many people don’t actually understand them. For example, it’s a common misconception that eating disorders are just about food. But they’re actually about so much more than that.
Eating disorders often stem from feelings of low self esteem, depression, anxiety, or in my case, being teased and ridiculed for my weight. I also believe that a big contributing factor to these feelings is the pressure that’s out there to meet impossible standards.
This is why I’m so proud of my partnership with the Jed Foundation for the Love Is Louder Than the Pressure To Be Perfect Campaign. Through the campaign we encourage everyone to love who they are and embrace the so-called “flaws” that actually make each of us unique.
If you or someone you know if suffering from an eating disorder, it’s important to speak up and seek professional help. There are a lot of great websites out there with tips on how to deal, and more information about the disease. A great one that I recommend is The National Eating Disorders Association.
You can get help, and you can feel better.
