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