In "Skin of My Teeth," Lovato sings about surviving their struggles with addiction.

"I'm alive by the skin of my teeth / I survived, but it got harder to breathe / Asking why doesn't make it easier / Go easier on me / Goddamn it, I just wanna be free," they sing.

In the interview, Lovato said the rock and roll song takes them back to their roots.

"It's definitely a change of pace for me," the star said. "But I'm also going back to my roots because that's what I started singing when I released my first album and my second album."

Lovato acknowledged they've "definitely been through a ton" in the past few years.

"After going through even more stuff last year, I came out of treatment again and I realized I really want to do this for myself and I want to make the best album possible," the singer said.

"The easiest way to do something, the most authentic, is to do it clean and sober," they added. "I made this album clean and sober -- I can't say that about my last album, but I'm really, really proud of this one."

Lovato officially released "Skin of My Teeth" and a music video for the song on Friday.
