Avril is finally ready to make a comeback.
After revealing in 2015 that she had Lyme disease, the Canadian artist made her first red carpet appearance in two years on Friday at the Race To Erase MS Gala in Beverly Hills.
Speaking to e! she spoke about her health and her new album, which she says will be out this year;
"It's a really powerful record,"
"I've been working on this for three years. I can actually say this time I'm going to be done with this album in two weeks and I will put it out this year."
"I've been writing songs that are really just powerful and true and honest and sincere and I think people will really be able to relate to it," she said. "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...I am producing, too, the songs. It's more of a vocal record and just like, hearing the lyrics and really hearing the emotion in the vocal. It's very piano-driven, too."
