Avril Lavigne, one of Canada's most popular musical exports, has just announced via Instagram that she will be releasing a new album in 2017!
She started her post by thanking her fans for sticking with her during her battle with Lyme Disease, an illness she has been suffering from since 2015. "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," she said in the post.
"I'm really happy to announce that I am now working on new music and I will be releasing a new album in 2017," she continued, promising that the disease and her work with the Avril Lavigne foundation would have an influence on the project.
As well as suffering with the disease, Lavigne has also recently broken up with her husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, after two years of marriage and a duet on her last self-titled album.
It sounds like there's a lot of stories Lavigne has to tell.
Avril's last album, the personal Avril Lavigne, was released three years ago in 2013. She also released a single titled 'Fly' back in 2015, but like the album it failed to make much of an impact on the charts.
Do you think Avril can deliver a better album than fan favourite work Goodbye Lullaby? Are you happy that she's finally making her comeback? How do you think the new era will look?
