As she continues to ride “Paint the Town Red” to global chart success, Doja Cat is turning her “Attention” to “Demons” on her latest Scarlet single.
On Friday (Sept. 1), the Grammy-winning star released the third pre-release single from her forthcoming Scarlet album. The D.A. Got That Dope-produced track finds Doja continuing the death-minded imagery of “Paint the Town Red.”
Doja first teased “Demons” on Aug. 22 with an Instagram post that captured her shadow striking a fierce pose. In the post, Doja’s shadow dons a pair of devil horns. A follow-up post on Aug. 29 unveiled the official single artwork for “Demons,” a scene straight out of supernatural suburbia. Doja, completely covered in black, hangs upside down in the corner of an unassuming living room with the song’s title spelled out in vacuum streaks on the carpet. The music video for “Demons,” which stars Emmy-nominated Yellowjackets actress Christina Ricci, premiered alongside the release of the track.
“Demons,” “Paint the Town Red,” and “Attention” are all set to appear on Scarlet. Doja’s new album is her first full-length project since 2021’s Planet Her. That album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, spawned Billboard Hot 100 top ten singles like “Woman,” and won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance for “Kiss Me More” (with SZA).
On Thursday (Aug. 31), Doja revealed the updated album cover for Scarlet. The original cover art featured a fittingly scarlet-colored spider, but Doja seemed to have deleted the post and changed the cover after fans noticed that German hardcore band Chaver also used the same spider on the artwork for their upcoming album cover.
