Fans of Avril Lavigne spent five years waiting for her new music, and she picked the most perfect occasion to surprise them with a new video. The Canadian singer made an emotionally-charged comeback with touching song Head Above Water, just in time for her birthday!
Lavigne hasn’t been releasing music in a long time because she spent the last few years focusing on her health. She took a five-year-long break after being diagnosed with Lyme disease, but her music was one thing that helped her cope.
“Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly,” explained Lavigne.
Canadian singer shared the video for Head Above Water with her fans on her 34th birthday. Lavigne started gathering visuals and imagining what the music video could look like from the very first day she wrote the song. She thanked the director Elliott Lester for hearing her ideas and going all the way to Iceland to bring her vision to life.
Head Above Water is the first single from Lavigne’s sixth studio album. She described it as a really emotional and powerful record, which reflects where she is today. Young singer is working on new songs every day and wants to release them by the end of the year.
