Demi Lovato's new single is the pop anthem of summer*

Demi Lovato (rhymes with tomato) is one of those artists who pops up in the UK chart every so often with a killer single, then disappears completely. This is one of those singles.

Cool For The Summer, written and produced by Max Martin**, is Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl crossed with the guitar riff from Sexy! No No No. Which is pretty exciting.

Buzzfeed has gotten itself into a lather about the lyrics, which it says are about a same-sex fling. You can certainly make that interpretation - she sings about tasting the cherry of someone who shares her body type - but does it even matter in 2015?

The main thing is that this is a total banger. A 10/10 pop gem. A good song by a good singer. A record you can purchase. A piece of music. An embedded audio stream.

Demi has also posted a teaser for the video on Twitter, which very definitely reminds me of that Pheoebe Cates scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

* Or, at the very least, this week.

** And Lovato. And Ali Payami. And Alexander Erik Kronlund. And Savan Kotecha. And your mum.
