IT’S HERE! Avril has officially released her 6th studio album, “Head Above Water”! Go pick it up in stores, or wherever you buy your digital music!
Featuring a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, it is absolutely apparent that Avril has POURED her heart and soul into this record. Not only are there emotional songs like the title track and “Warrior”, young playful Avril comes out on “Souvenir”, “Goddess” and “Dumb Blonde”. From start to finish, it’s almost as if the songs tell a story and tie everything together. From going through with her battle with Lyme Disease, dealing with not having creative control all of those years ago and growing up, this record is STRONG, both melodically and vocally. We’ve never heard Avril like this before!!
I do have to say that with the first few listens, this might top “Under My Skin” as my favorite album. Although each song has a certain individuality and I honestly enjoy them all, my faves are “It Was In Me”, “Dumb Blonde”, “Bigger Wow” and “Souvenir”. Which ones are your stand out tracks?
As a lifelong Avril fan (and even as a newbie!), you’ll definitely find something for you on this record. “Head Above Water” is going to be one of those talked about albums as it shows that Avril isn’t just a bubble gum pop diva. She’s a resilient songwriter and artist that’s been put through real-life scenarios and has found a way to translate that into art. Pure art. That’s what makes her so successful. AND WE LOVE HER FOR IT!
Hope you love the record as much as I do! Happy listening!
