Demi Lovato called into Kidd Kraddick in the Morning on Thursday to talk about her new single, Skyscraper, the outpouring of support from her fans and peers, along with her public battle with depression.

On her new single, Skyscraper and why she felt she had to record it:

I actually recorded it a year was a really, a very intense recording session because I was basically, like, doubled over in tears, pouring my heart out...Everyone goes through their own issues and I think that's the best part about this song, no matter what issues people are going through they can relate to it.

On going through rehab and the publicity surrounding it:

...whether I was ready to tell the world or not what my deepest, darkest issues were...they were coming out. Instead of taking it and thinking of it as a negative, I realized at that moment, 'Hey, I'm going through this for a reason, I'm in front of millions of girls for a reason, and I need to share this with them. And if I'm saving one young girl from going to far, then I'm saving her life and that's all that matters to me.'

You can hear the interview in its entirety on Kidd Kraddick's website and check out the video for Skyscraper below.
