When Did Avril Lavigne Release Head Above Water?
Avril released her latest album Head Above Water on February 15th 2019. The album is inspired by her battle with Lyme disease, after the disease left her fighting for her health.
In a letter on her website she revealed she “had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down.”
Avril wrote: “I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going underwater 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.”
The singer is now raising awareness about how severe Lyme disease can be.
