The Canadian singer Avril Lavigne have not released any album since 2013. But now in 2017, she’s releasing her new album. She let the world know about it for the first time on December 25, 2016, via her Instagram account. And since then the singer has posted several updates related to her upcoming album and about music that she is working on.
Avril Lavigne has also signed the record deal with BMG. And she’s quite happy about being the part of BMG family as she let everyone know via one of her posts. In this post, she plays piano and guitar afterwards while sharing some words.
She is working hard on the new music and her previous days of fighting with the disease will have some reflection on her new music. As the narration of this short video clip, she said, “For this album, I have a new team behind me, and I just signed a new deal with BMG. I have been working really hard on the new music and its a reflection of my journey over the last few years. At this point in my career and in my life, I just wanted to put fresh energy around me and I feel like I am having some mode of a re-birth in my life. I have faced with a lot, gone through a lot emotionally. The whole writing process has been therapeutic and empowering. Without trying to make an album, I have made one. ”
Avril Lavigne was fighting with Lyme disease for the past two years. This disease cannot be painful at early stages, but as she was fighting it for two years, there are high chances that she might be suffering from some of the following symptoms. Loss of the ability to move one or both sides of the face, joint pains, severe headaches with neck stiffness, or heart palpitations, among others.
Writing new songs and creating music requires creativity and a person should be perfectly healthy to do that. So I think it’s kind’of brave of Avril Lavigne that she has recovered from this disease and working on a new album to release in 2017.
As she said without trying to make an album, I have made one. Many parts of the songs come to a writers mind from the moments that they have experienced in their lives. She might have thought about the pain she went through and find out that her story or tough journey can inspire people. So she’s putting worth sharing moments on the album. That’s what she meant by the words that she has made an album without trying to make it.
I think putting yourself out in the world and sharing your story or journey is a brave thing to do. So, I admire Avril Lavigne for doing that.
