Avril Lavigne Reveals ‘Head Above Water’ Cover & Tracklist

Next Wednesday, fans will be able to order Avril Lavigne’s long-awaited 6th album, Head Above Water. Preceded by the single of the same name, Head Above Water is due out in February 2019. Today, Avril finally shared the album cover and its full 12-song tracklist!

In addition to “Head Above Water” and upcoming single “Tell Me It’s Over,” Avril’s forthcoming album includes 10 new songs:   

  1. Head Above Water
  2. Birdie
  3. I Fell In Love With The Devil
  4. Tell Me It’s Over
  5. Dumb Blonde
  6. It Was In Me
  7. Souvenir
  8. Crush
  9. Goddess
  10. Bigger Wow
  11. Love Me Insane
  12. Warrior

Several of the titles have been floating around for weeks or even years. Two years ago, Avril teased lyrics of “Warrior” on her Instagram channel. Early in 2017, she also revealed “Crush” to be a title. Then, in fall 2017, she worked on “It Was In Me” with her Let Go collaborator, Lauren Christy

The song titles “Birdie,” “I Fell In Love With The Devil,” and “Dumb Blonde” leaked a few months ago. “Souvenir” and “Bigger Wow” are newer titles that appeared online more recently. 

The only new titles are “Goddess” and “Love Me Insane.” 

A few other known song titles are also noticeably absent. When Avril worked with Lauren Christy last year, they also wrote a song called “Lucky Ones,” but it looks like we’ll have to wait to hear that one. Another song, “In Touch,” was registered on ASCAP but didn’t make the cut. However, it’s unclear if we’ll ever get to hear either of these songs. 

What do you think of the Head Above Water tracklist? Which songs are you most excited to hear? What style do you anticipate for each track? Let us know in the comments below!

In addition to the tracklisting, Avril also shared the Head Above Water album cover: 

This Wednesday, December 12th, Avril will release her second single, “Tell Me It’s Over.” It will come with the opportunity to pre-order Head Above Water that same day. 

We have a lot to look forward to next week! While we count down the days, catch up on all we know about Avril’s upcoming album. Although an exact release date still evades us, it’s been confirmed for February 2019. Keep checking back here for all the latest Avril Lavigne music news. 

Avril Lavigne Teases New Lyrics From Upcoming Single

Two months ago, Avril Lavigne shared her moving ballad “Head Above Water,” the lead single from her upcoming album of the same name. The record doesn’t come out until February, but Avril is already teasing new songs! Today, Avril shared a fierce new picture with a caption that seems to be song lyrics.

While “Head Above Water” delved into Avril’s battle with Lyme Disease, this new song seems to be about a relationship. What could this new song be? Will this be the second single? Check out the picture and lyrics, and share your best guess below.

Update 11/3: Avril shared a video clip with new lyrics on Saturday. Unfortunately, the video is silent!

Update 11/4: Avril shared a final teaser image and lyrics on Sunday evening:

 

The full lyrics are as follows:

I ain’t playing no games
I’ve got nothing left to lose
So tired of circular motions
They leave me dizzy and confused
My heart is not your revolving door
I get stuck spinning and spinning til I collapse on the floor

But every time that you touch me
I forget what we’re fighting about
Oh you come and you leave shame on me
For believing every word out of your mouth

Darling you, oh you taste so bittersweet
Can’t get you off of my lips
You’re dangerous when you take me like a thief

Avril just confirmed her album’s name and release month earlier this week. Besides “Head Above Water,” the only other confirmed song is called “Warrior.” However, other known titles include “Crush,” “It Was In Me,” and “Lucky Ones” (the latter two she wrote with Lauren Christy). New rumored titles surfaced in the last couple of months as well. They include “Dumb Blonde,” “Birdie,” and “I Fell In Love With The Devil.” Could these new lyrics come from one of those songs?

Whatever the song is, it will likely be released as a new single in the coming weeks. Get ready to hear our second new Avril song soon!

While we await this mysterious new song, be sure to catch up on all that went into making Head Above Water. The album will drop in just three months. February will be here before we know it! As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Avril Lavigne music news.

Avril Lavigne Reveals Tons Of Album News In Facebook Live Chat

Avril Lavigne has been working on her sixth studio album for the last three years, officially entering the studio earlier this year. Her eponymous fifth album came out back in November 2013, and in the long break, Avril battled lyme disease and went through a divorce. We’ve heard only a few new songs from her in the last few years – including “Fly” and a new collaboration, “Wings Clipped” – and fans have been growing increasingly impatient for the album she’d promised for 2017. Yesterday evening, fans finally got some concrete answers when Avril conducted her first Facebook Live chat.

The live chat’s focus was on the Avril Lavigne Foundation and their work with Lyme Light, but Avril quickly shifted attention to answering fan questions. Naturally, the upcoming album took up most of the discussion, and Avril spilled some major details. She has more than 20 songs ready, and plans to finish recording by the end of this month. Mixing and mastering will follow suite, with the album likely coming out next spring.

I am working really hard and I have 20+ songs and I have to keep going. I have to just keep working on this album and I’m just trying to make it perfect, because it really deserves and needs to be the best it can be for you guys. And I’ve been waiting, and it’s almost there. Because I write my songs, because I’m as hands-on and full-on with my music the way that I am, it’s a process. It doesn’t just happen over night.

I’m in sessions every day working, writing, recording, and this whole month is the month we’re planning on literally wrapping, and it should be wrapped, and we’re going into mixing. I’m pretty amped for that, because I feel like I’m basically done now.

Avril stated that this is her most personal album yet, drawing on various experiences from her own life. Her battle with lyme disease does come up in the emotional new songs. Avril also promises to include some more upbeat rock songs.

The album’s really cool. I know that everyone always come out with their record and they say, “It’s the strongest, this is my best work, blah blah,” but I’ve really put everything into this, and I think my songs and songwriting – I’ve definitely pushed myself. I’ve pushed myself really hard to write about topics and subjects that I haven’t really gotten into before, and lyrically be just a little more clever and poetic.

I have been doing all of the songwriting at the piano and everything is sort of empowering and emotional. Tons of depth and very sincere. I’ve definitely been writing about what I’m going through. And you know, I do that a lot, but I also… not all the time. This is probably the most personal record. Now that I’m at the end I just wanna have a little fun and make sure that I get some cool rock songs for you guys live. To make sure that everybody’s happy. And that’s kind of where I’m at now.

Earlier this year, Avril mentioned a song called “Warrior.” She talked about it more yesterday:

You guys know that I have a song called “Warrior,” because I told you about that. See, the thing is, I wrote all these songs, and I’ve been ready on my end. It’s just been putting together all the business stuff, and getting the right producers on board, and the good producers are busy, then we’re taking meetings, and just finding people that are the right fit. For me, I always have a combination of different songwriters I work with. I did a lot of writing on my own; I started a lot of concepts on my own then really wanted to perfect them, and brought other writers in at the end. Even though I wrote “Warrior” two and a half years ago, I’m actually going to record it this November. I’ve been living with the music for a really long time.

Avril mentioned that she hasn’t played guitar as much lately, spending most of the last few years on piano. She’s written most of her songs on piano, and will play the instrument live in upcoming concerts.

She also contemplated her first single for the album. “I feel like I’ll probably lead the album with a song that is very telling of what I’ve just gone through, so it would be more emotional. A ballad. Maybe I’ll come out with two songs at the same time. There’s an idea!”

This is the most information about the album we’ve gotten so far. Watch the full Facebook Live chat with Avril below. She promises more Facebook Live fun in the future.

Last month, Avril shared numerous studio updates on Instagram and Snapchat. She’s mainly been recording vocals all month, which is usually the last part recorded for a song. However, she also mentioned that she’s been trying to write punk rock songs à la Green Day.

 

 

She recorded a few new songs with other artists, including tracks with Nick Carter and Japanese band ONE OK ROCK. Avril also returned to her acting ambitions, voicing Snow White in the upcoming animated film, Charming. For the movie, Avril also joined Ashley Tisdale and G.E.M. to sing “Trophy Boy,” written by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump.

Avril’s new album will come out in 2018 via BMG RecordsCatch up on all we know about the new record so far, and keep checking back here for more on Avril’s new music.

Avril Lavigne Hints At More Lyrics From Upcoming Record

Avril Lavigne is gearing up to release a new album in 2017, and it seems that she’s as excited as her fans are. At the end of 2016, Avril teased lyrics from a song possibly called “Warrior.” In January, she pushed the “Warrior” hint again along with a new title: “Crush” or “Crushed.” This month, Avril has continued to give fans lyric hints and small insights into the writing process for her new album.

At the beginning of February, Avril shared the line “You make me lose control,” evidently from the song called “Crush.” In the middle of the month, Avril hinted that “black & white” could be part of a new song. In these new Instagram pictures, Avril appears with two guitars (one electric and one acoustic) and a baby grand piano. Check out Avril’s musical hints below:

 

 

 

 

Avril has been steadily writing and demoing new music at least since 2015, and has shared social updates intermittently. She says the new music will reflect her personal and health changes. Based on the lyrics she’s shared so far, it sounds like her new songs will be empowering. Her 2015 charity single, “Fly,” may be a hint of the direction she plans to go. Musically, it seems that Avril may be going in a more raw, instrument-driven direction.

Only time will tell, but Avril’s sixth album is sure to be a stunning comeback! Hopefully a new single will be out soon enough.

A new album isn’t the only thing Avril’s been working on recently. She signed on to voice Snow White in an upcoming animated film called Charming. The movie will also come with a new song written by Fall Out Boy and sung by Avril. In January, fans got to hear her new song “Listen” with the Japanese band, One Ok Rock. It appears on their album, Ambitions, out on January 11th.

There’s plenty going on for Avril this year. Keep checking back here for all the latest Avril Lavigne music news.
