Avril has posted a 30 second preview of the “Head Above Water” lyric video, most likely being released on the 19th as well. Anyone else love the strength of her voice in this? WOW

Other than the first one, videos have no sound. It’s not your device.

After Avril performed “Head Above Water” for the very first time on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! (air date still TBA), she signed some autographs and took pictures with fans. Avril wore a similar gorgeous, angelic white dress that we will get to see in the music video for the song. Fans who were at the live taping, described the song as “strong vocals, gospel sounding”.

Avril took to her official website with a massive update: a letter to her fans outlining what she’s been through, and where she’s going. We can expect the first single, “Head Above Water” to be released on September 19!

Read her letter below (and be prepared to tear up!)

Hi guys,

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce the first single off my new album along with its release date. Five years have gone by since I released my last album. I spent the last few years at home sick fighting Lyme Disease. Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. I wrote songs in my bed and on the couch and recorded there mostly as well. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly. Truly… by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive.

Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called “Head Above Water.” It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water 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. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story. I later met a beautiful soul, Travis Clark, and we sat down at the piano and sculpted the rest of the song. Then I took it to the genius, Stephan Moccio and love what he did to the music.

From Avril’s official website. Her new bio:

Over the course of Avril’s sixth full-length album and debut for BMG, she holds nothing back. She details each trial and tribulation from a perspective of triumph and emerges stronger than ever before. You’re hearing the songstress as she was always meant to sound. “This is me and my fight,” she affirms. “This album tells my story.”

That story seems unbelievable from afar. One difficult night in particular while she fights for her life, a lyrical idea rushes through her body. Those words comprise “Head Above Water.”

“I’m in a battle,” she sighs. “One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die. My mom laid with me in bed and held me. I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help to keep my head above the water.’ In that moment, the song writing of this album began. It was like I tapped into something. It was a very spiritual experience. Lyrics flooded through me from that point on.”

Nothing has officially been announced yet, but a new song was registered on ASCAP. “Head Above Water,” written by Avril along with Travis Clark (We The Kings) and Stephan Moccio.

The title fits the visuals that Avril has recently described . The music video will feature her in water and at a recent album cover photo shoot, Avril said she was “wrecking her makeup” being in under water.

Whatever the first single is – “Head Above Water” or something else – it will be released this month (rumored date is September 19). A good guess is that it will touch on Avril’s recent battle with Lyme disease.

Ohhhhh, it’s going down! Avril’s Instagram has been wiped except for 9 photos centering around the new song and video. If you’ve seen other artists do this, you know that this means they are getting ready to launch a new project. Avril has said that the new single is coming in September…

There is also a new song registered to ASCAP called “Head Above Water”, written by Avril, Travis Clark (We The Kings) and Stephan Moccio (songwriter/producer). Given the clues that this video involves water, this might be a great guess for the first single!
