Avril Lavigne Releases First Single 'Head Above Water' After 5 Year Hiatus


Avril Lavigne was so quiet over the last five years that actual conspiracy theories about her were created [Melissa, anyone?] -- but everyone's favorite Pop/Rock PriNcEsS is finally back with new music.

On Wednesday, she released Head Above Water, an emotional ballad about her battle with Lyme Disease. 

Lavigne recently penned an open letter to her fans, revealing that her illness is what kept her away (and at times, bedridden) for so long. 

Check out the official lyric video for Head Above Water below!
