Looks like Demi Lovato is going to have a lot on her plate this year! The "Heart Attack" singer announced the upcoming release of her fourth studio album, entitled simply Demi, on Monday, April 1. 

And judging by the looks of her edgy album cover, Lovato will be baring a lot more of herself in her latest musical venture. In the arresting image, the former Disney star appears topless, pairing silver glitter with vampy dark lipstick, her gaze intense.

"I'm incredibly proud of this album," the 20-year-old singer said of her album in a statement. "It's better than anything I have ever done! I experimented with a variety of different sounds and poured my heart into writing these songs. I'm so excited for everyone to finally get the chance to hear them!"

Late last week, Lovato also confirmed her plans to return as a judge on The X Factor for the Fox show's third season. Fellow season two judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid will not be returning for another round of the talent competition.

"I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor," Lovato told Us Weekly in a statement at the time. "Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!"
