Four years is an eternity between albums in the pop music world, although Avril Lavigne has had good reason for her downtime.
She has been battling Lyme disease for the last few years, but if you have been waiting for an end to her hiatus you can rest easy.
Avril has finally confirmed she is only about two weeks out from completing her sixth studio record and you can expect a shift to a more piano-driven sound.
"I’ve gone through a lot of personal stuff in the past two years, and so I've really drawn from that. I mean, I always do, but this album is so different," she tells E! News. "All the waiting and the hard work on my end will pay off. I promise."
Avril also promises the album will arrive sometime this year!
