Avril Lavigne New Single ‘Head Above Water’

Avril Lavigne is back with intimate track ‘Head Above Water’, her first new music in five years.

The global recording superstar co-wrote the track laden with stark piano chords and powerful vocals. The lyrics delve into the personal journey of Avril’s battle with Lyme Disease and how she’s emerged stronger than ever.

Avril commented, “One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me. I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ In that moment, the song writing of this album began. It was like I tapped into something. It was a very spiritual experience. Lyrics flooded through me from that point on.”


To coincide with the release of new music, the Canadian singer-songwriter remains dedicated to bringing the strong messaging of ‘Head Above Water’ through The Avril Lavigne Foundation, which supports people with Lyme Disease, serious illness or disabilities. Using various programs and grants, the foundation provides funding, education and encouragement for its beneficiaries.

Avril Lavigne has sold over 40 million albums as well as received eight Grammy nominations. She has achieved an impressive three No.1 records on the UK Official Albums Chart, with some of her biggest hits including ‘Complicated’, ‘Sk8er Boi’, ‘I’m With You’ and ‘Girlfriend’.
