Background

Songwriting

Lovato has said that she writes music from the heart and from experiences she's had. She told M Magazine: "I'm more of a writer whose stuff wouldn't make it on a Disney album. So I came to the Jonas Brothers and I was like, 'Ummmm ... I need help writing catchy stuff just because, well, my target audience isn't [into] metal music." [2] She also said about the Jonas Brothers' contribution, "My songs needed a polish, which is where the Jonas Brothers came in - and it all began on Camp Rock." [3]

Recording

Lovato stated in an interview that the vocals for the album were recorded in ten and a half days.[4]

Singles

"Get Back"

The album's lead single, "Get Back" was released on August 12th, 2008. It peaked at #6 on iTunes Top 100 Songs chart and #43 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The Radio Disney edit omitted the word "kiss" from the line "kiss me/like you mean it/like you miss me" to "hold me/like you mean it/like you miss me". The edit was used for the music video.

"La La Land"
