"Demi (stylized as DEMI)" is the fourth studio album by Demi Lovato. It was released on May 14, 2013. It was available for pre-order in the US and Canada on April 9, 2013.
The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 with the first-week sales of 116,000 copies—the highest first-week album sales of Demi's career. The album also reached the top five in Canada, Ireland, Italy, Mexico and Spain.
On April 2012, Demi began writing the songs from her fourth studio album, after the commercial success of her third studio album, "Unbroken". The album was recorded during Lovato's appearance as a mentor on the second season of The X Factor (U.S.).
It was reported that Lovato is working on her fourth studio album with producer Mitch Allan. On April 5, 2012, Lovato confirmed on Twitter that writing for the album had began, saying that she was "so excited to start writing for my fourth album", and that "this time, there's no holding back.."
On April 8, 2012, Demi expressed disappointment stating that she "just wrote a song I will never be able to release". In August 2012 at the Minnesota State Fair, Demi announced that she will work on her fourth album for two months after her 2012 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show performance and the lead single from the album was confirmed to be released in December 2012, but eventually never was.
In the October 2012 issue of Teen Vogue, Demi stated,
Demi: I will say that I'm tired of all the dubstep that's on the radio right now -- I think it's going to be out in two months. I want to make something that people will listen to for a while, rather than something that's just trendy. I feel like I've grown as a person, and I want my music to grow with me.On December 24, 2012, Lovato released a video of her performing "Angels Among Us" on her YouTube account, which she dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
- On February 12, 2013, Demi announced that "Heart Attack", the lead single from her upcoming fourth studio album would be released for digital download on March 4, 2013.

- "Neon Lights" was announced as the album's third single on September 20, 2013. On September 29, 2013, Demi later announced the name of her upcoming concert tour, the Neon Lights Tour. "Neon Lights" was officially sent to Top 40/Mainstream radio in the U.S. on November 19, 2013. On November 21, 2013, the music video was released.

The music video was released on June 26, 2014.
On May 6, 2013, Demi asked her Twitter followers to "unlock" the entire album by putting song titles in hashtags. A special website lovaticsspeeduptime.com was launched, displaying all the songs next to a clock that would turn as tweets would be sent. Once a song became a trending topic, its YouTube video was made available on VEVO. All the songs were unlocked within four hours. An iBooks-exclusive e-book titled Demi (The Book) was released on June 11, 2013. Lovato also posted three videos on May 13, 14 and May 17, 2013 titled "The Story of DEMI" to talk about her album.
