So there’s a new Avril Lavigne song

So there’s a new Avril Lavigne song
Avril Lavigne has grown up. No, not a dodgy Daily Mail headline, but a reaction to her new song Head Above Water. You could say it’s got a definite bland maturity to it, you could say it’s very Radio 2. It’s definitely not S8ter Boy. 
Anyway, it’s got a message too, and that’s Avril’s struggle with Lyme disease. Here’s excerpts from her statement:
“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.”
