I hope they will use this hype to release the lead single, even Billboard have now an article about it.

2017 updates:

So far we know (from the Facebook Live):

  • She has written 20+ songs

  • The songs is written using the piano

  • She has written on her own, then taken it to the producers to perfect it

  • She has taken onto topics she hasn’t really done before

  • She has gotten more poetic and clever with the lyrics

  • Warrior will be recorded this month, tho it was written 2 years ago

  • The album might be her most emotional and personal to date.
    -She does write about her journey with lyme and the road to recovery.

  • The producers has been so busy, that’s why it has taken so much time before they actually got into the studio to start working.

  • She really wants this record to be perfect

  • There are punk rock songs in the making, because she wants to have songs to rock out to live and also to balance out the record

  • Writing and recording should be done this month

  • Mixing is next

  • She was thinking about releasing 2 songs as the singles (but this is just wishful thinking from Avril)

  • She wants the first single to be a ballad

what do you think? i think it would be a good promo for avril


bitch better say or show something soon.


The album’s production should wrap sometime in February. According to her, the delays have been because of her finding the right producers to trust with the material.


oh my gosh, I didn’t realize how much I missed her music until I saw this thread.

I cannot wait to hear what she releases next. Hopefully it’s like Goodbye Lullaby


I hope it will be GL + UMS together. :slight_smile:
