Forget “Breakfast,” Dove Cameron is serving up “Girl Dinner” with her forthcoming debut album, Alchemical.
She finally offered one major update on new music in September 2023 while on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards. When presenting the award for Best New Artist at the event, Cameron — who was bestowed the honor during the 2022 VMAs — revealed the title of her first-ever record.
“With the first volume of my two-part debut album, Alchemical, coming out this fall, I am so honored to be passing the torch to one of these amazing, rising stars,” she gushed.
The official announcement came months after Cameron teased that she was “inches away” from releasing new music.
“I have just narrowed it down from about 60 songs that I have written. I’m trying to get the number of songs on the album really high, but Columbia [Records] is being reasonable,” she told Variety in July 2023. “I’m being unreasonable. I’ve got all my favorites and most of them have been sent to the mixer and finished and the ones that aren’t. I just left the studio last night at midnight while I’m in L.A.”

What Has Dove Cameron Said About Her Debut Album?
Before sharing any details about Alchemical, Cameron shared tons of hints about what’s to come.
“I’m actually working on my debut album pretty much every day now, which I’m very, very excited about,” she said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in March 2023. “I think the whole kind of — the idea is that you’re supposed to write like a hundred, choose your favorite 60, get it down to the best 40. …. You just write every day. That’s kind of the job, is you just go into the studio and you just nose to the grindstone write every day.”
