has been in the studio working on brand new music, and now the 18-year-old is ready to unveil her hot-off-the-press single, 'Skyscraper,' on July 12.
The song will debut on 'On Air With Ryan Seacrest' and RyanSeacrest.com
next Tuesday, and, as Demi explained in her recent live Web chat
, the inspirational single is very near and dear to her heart.
"It's about the journey that I've been through; it's about overcoming my inner demons that I had," she said. "It's about not letting anything tear me down and rising above any problem or issue that I've ever had. It's just a really empowering song that I know a lot of you guys will be able to relate to."
In an interview with Seventeen
magazine, Demi added, "My first single is really special to me. To me it symbolizes my journey from the person I was to the happy and healthy person I am today, and the fact that people are able to rise above anything, despite the odds."
Are you excited to hear the new song? Keep your ears peeled on Tuesday, July 12, and don't blink -- we hear that Demi's video for 'Skyscraper' will be arriving shortly after the premiere of her single.
