Demi Lovato does not want to “Give Your Heart A Break” anymore — now she’s ready to set off a “Heart Attack.”

Less than two weeks after teasing the track, the former Disney darling debuted the lead single from her upcoming fourth studio album, Heart Attack. Though the songstress planned to unveil the tune on March 4, Lovato surprised fans by dropping “Heart Attack” late Sunday night.

“Surprise! We’re premiering @ddlovato’s new song ‘#HeartAttack’ TONIGHT!!” Seacrest announced on his Twitter account, linking to the On Air with Ryan Seacrest site. “Go listen now.”

The rock-tinged pop tune, which The X Factor judge penned along with four co-writers, is an edgy departure from Lovato’s earlier saccharine-sweet sound. Over a bass-heavy beat that carries hints of electronic, the singer croons about hiding her head-over-heels feelings.

“You make me glow, but I cover up/ Won’t let it show, so I’m/ Puttin’ my defences up/ Cause I don’t wanna fall in love,” Lovato belts out (see the song’s lyrics at DirectLyrics). “If I ever did that/ I think I’d have a heart attack.”

The single comes ahead of her upcoming Heart Attack album, due out in Spring 2013. But Lovato has billed it as a different sound than her 2011 release, Unbroken.

“For a while, I could tell when people talked to me, they knew my story,” she said. “I think I’ve opened up more on this album. My life began to evolve and I started to grow. These are songs about the celebration of life and how rewarding it can be.”
