The new version features edgier re-recorded vocals and updated production from Warren ‘Oak’ Felder, Keith “Ten4” Sorrelles, and Alex Nice, giving the summer anthem a newfound intensity. “Cool for the Summer” was originally released 8 years ago as the lead single from Demi’s fifth studio album, Confident. The 3x platinum track became an instant global hit, topping charts worldwide and peaking at #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Chart.
The release marks the second signature song Demi has updated to reflect her current sound – earlier this year, she released “Heart Attack (Rock Version)” in celebration of the original track’s 10-year anniversary which was met with praise from both fans and critics alike.
