Her new song includes the lyrics, "We've been down this road before, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore".

Demi Lovato has released a new single which reveals her struggles with sobriety, detailing a relapse after six years.

In the song titled "Sober" the 25-year-old confesses to a relapse, apologising to her family, friends and supporters.

"Momma I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore / And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor," she sings in the ballad.

"And I'm sorry for the fans I lost Who watched me fall again I wanna be a role model But I'm only human."

In March Lovato celebrated six years of sobriety, overcoming the years of substance abuse as a Disney star in her teens.

Lovato has always been open about her struggles with substance abuse, as well as her history with mental health issues. In her documentary Simply Complicated she spoke candidly about her past, with "Sober" another chapter in the singer's ongoing battle to overcome her inner demons.

After she dropped the surprise track and a lyric video, fans were quick to rally behind her bravery in sharing her story, offering love and support.
