Demi Lovato has been making her way cross-country this past year in support of her 2013 self-titled fourth studio album, Demi. The album has produced three Top 40 hits on the Hot 100 chart and is using the momentum to back her highly anticipated fifth studio album.
Lovato is expecting to release the 2015 album via Hollywood Records and plans to hit the studio now that her North American tour wrapped up this past weekend.
“The plan is for her to go back into the studio and start the next creative process. She’s already done some songs, but certainly the majority of it will kick off next year,” Lovato’s manager Phil McIntyre told Billboard.
Though no release dates have been discussed Lovato will begin the creative process and working towards a fifth studio album. Lovato will continue her world tour throughout the process leading into next year.
The self-titled album produced a number of hits that include “Heart Attack,” “Really Don’t Care” featuring Cher Lloyd and “Neon Lights.”
After returning to the U.S. X Factor as a judge Lovato returned to the road and played two arena shows before embarking on her spring tour, the Neon Lights tour which was immediately followed by the Demi World Tour that took place this fall and wrapped up this past weekend.
“There’s not a lot of people who could go do two arena tours [in one year] anymore, and she’s one of them,” said Disney Music Group president Ken Bunt. “There were three hits off of this record, and when she plays, there’s plenty of hits now.”
Meanwhile, Lovato will be embarking on a European run of her world tour on Nov. 16.
