Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne gave a special Christmas gift to her fans — the promise of a new album!

“I’m really happy to announce that I am now working on new music and I will be releasing a new album in 2017,” the 32-year-old Canadian singer wrote in a message posted on social media.

Lavigne, who hasn’t released a new collection of music since 2013, thanked her fans for their patience and support.

“I can’t wait to open up and share my heart with you!”

Lavigne has spent the past two years recovering from Lyme Disease and vowed to continue to raise awareness.

Lavigne, who has released four albums since her 2002 debut Let Go, has also been busy with her fashion ventures, charitable foundation work, and other projects.

“I’m excited for you guys to hear the new songs,” she wrote. “It’s going to be an amazing 2017!”
