Here’s another reason why we want 2016 to go away. Fast. Please.
In a surprise announcement on Instagram, reigning punk princess Avril Lavigne made an exciting announcement to fans world over. And 2017, we can’t wait for you!
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!
Her 4.3 million followers must be ecstatic! It’s been a while since the Here’s To Never Growing Up singer released a complete album, the last one being her self-titled one way back in 2013. Since then, she has released a couple of singles, including her musical contribution to the 2015 Special Olympics with her hit single, Fly.
The Canadian pop singer was on hiatus following her diagnosis of Lyme Disease, a bug bite that turns nearly fatal. Many celebrities have been attacked by the disease, including supermodel Bella Hadid and her mother, veteran model Yolanda Foster. At the time, the Complicated singer had said of the disease: “I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move. I thought I was dying.”
Since the illness, she has made a few changes to her life, including separating from husband, fellow Canadian rocker and frontman of band Nickelback, Chad Kroeger. Her beef with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg also recently happened, when he made a jibe at Nickelback through his artificial intelligence bot, Jarvis. She also started her Abbey Dawn clothing line, as well as the Avril Lavigne Foundation for awareness about Lyme Disease that still does not have a cure.
