Surprise! Fall Out Boy is re-releasing their single, “Irresistible,” and Demi Lovato has taken over for lead singer Patrick Stump on vocals.
Fall Out Boy has announced that tomorrow, October 16, the remastered version of “Irresistible” will be released. The quartet states that the tune will be the next single off their 2015 album, titled American Beauty/American Psycho. Artwork for the single was tweeted by Fall Out Boy yesterday afternoon.
Pete Wentz, bassist for Fall Out Boy, took to his blog to let fans know to expect to see “Irresistible” soon, declaring that he always knew the tune “always felt like it could become something else, something exciting, strange, beyond.”
“I think Demi Lovato has one of the most powerful voices today. So we worked through an afternoon and she just got it. Excited for you guys to hear this new version of the song on Friday.”
“Irresistible” isn’t a new release, as Fall Out Boy fans know. “Irresistible,” which is the opening track on Fall Out Boy’s sixth studio album, was first introduced in January of this year.
“It will give us all the chance to work through it and become who we are supposed to be.”
