While there is no release date for the album just yet, it is expected to drop in February. However, Head Above Water will be available for preorder Dec. 12.
Lavigne’s first single was inspired by her battle with Lyme Disease. However, Head Above Water is sure to address Lavigne’s triumphant comeback as a whole.
The cover features Lavigne in a pool of water, holding a guitar close to her body. While the instrument is slightly submerged, the majority of the guitar stands proudly out of the water. Check it out below.

In a personal letter to fans, Lavigne announced the first song she had recorded in years, “Head Above Water.” Additionally, Lavigne dropped the music video for the album’s title track back in September.
“Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight. The battle of my lifetime,” she said. “The first song I am choosing to release is … the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life.”
