Avril Lavigne is coming back in a big way. The Canadian singer hasn’t released music in 5 years and she announced her new single, “Head Above Water” next week.
She writes: “Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called ‘Head Above Water.’ It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story.”z
Adding: “To be honest, part of me doesn’t want to talk about being sick because I want it to all be behind me, but I know I have to.”
