In true Christmas spirit, Avril Lavigne treated her fans to some very special news yesterday. The rock princess revealed that her sixth album will be released in 2017!
Reflecting on her two year battle with Lyme disease whilst also looking forward to the future, Avril reached out to her supporters with a personal message on Instagram.
She said: “Hi Everyone!! I wanted to first thank my fans for your patience & support during my time away throughout my battle with Lyme Disease over the past 2 years. It hasn’t just been a hard battle but it’s also been enlightening and will reflect in my new music, artistry, life, and personally. I will always continue to make it a priority to fight and raise awareness about Lyme Disease with the Avril Lavigne foundation.”
“I’m really happy to announce that I am now working on new music and I will be releasing a new album in 2017. I can’t wait to open up and share my heart with you! I’m excited for you guys to hear the new songs. It’s going to be an amazing 2017!”
It’s been three years since Avril Lavigne’s last record. Her eponymous fifth album hit the shelves back in 2013 and it featured the incredibly diverse singles: ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’, ‘Rock N Roll’, ‘Let Me Go’, ‘Hello Kitty’ and ‘Give You What You Like.’
More recently, Avril released ‘Fly’ for 2015’s Special Olympics World Games. The Canadian rocker performed the empowering track live at the competition’s opening ceremony and all proceeds from the single helped support Avril’s charitable foundation.
Over the years, Avril Lavigne has sold over 35 million albums and more than 50 million singles worldwide. With beautiful ballads and rebellious upbeat numbers, she really has perfected her craft. We’re seriously can’t wait to hear Avril’s sixth album next year!
