GRAMMY-nominated global superstar Demi Lovato has released ‘Still Alive’, her new original song for the upcoming horror film SCREAM VI. The high energy track arrives alongside the aptly aesthetic music video. The visual sees the world of the film invade reality when Demi and her friends attend a private screening of SCREAM VI, only to find themselves being hunted by Ghostface himself.
Demi assumes the iconic role of “Final Girl” as she faces off with her assailant in the video’s final act. The video was directed by Jensen Noen and features cameos from Mike Shinoda and Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills). The song was written by Lovato, Shinoda, and Laura Veltz. The video made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.
“I couldn’t think of a more perfect home for ‘Still Alive’ than within the Scream universe. I’m a huge fan of the films, so it’s an honour to contribute to such an iconic horror franchise,” states Demi.
“Still Alive” plays at the start of the film’s final credits and marks the first taste of new music from Demi since the release of last year’s HOLY FVCK. The critically acclaimed album, which featured singles “29,” “SUBSTANCE,” and SKIN OF MY TEETH,” saw Demi return to her rock and pop-punk roots and included features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara. The album debuted at #1 on three separate Billboard charts: Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Alternative Albums, and earned her a 2023 GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Music Artist.
Scream VI follows the surviving cast members from last year’s film as they leave behind Woodsboro and the Ghostface killings to start a fresh chapter.
