Avril Lavigne unveils cinematic clip for comeback single Head Over Water

Avril Lavigne has released the video for her powerful comeback single Head Above Water.

The cinematic clip for the soft rock track follows the Canadian singer-songwriter as she explores the Icelandic landscape, culminating in a dramatic finale where she becomes submerged in water.

Head Above Water packs an emotional punch as it sees the singer address her battle with Lyme disease, and celebrate making it through to the other side alive.

“One night, I thought I was dying, and I had accepted that I was going to die,” she said in a statement.

“My mom laid with me in bed and held me. I felt like I was drowning. Under my breath, I prayed ‘God, please help me to keep my head above the water’. In that moment, the song writing of this album began.

“It was like I tapped into something. It was a very spiritual experience. Lyrics flooded through me from that point on.”

To coincide with the single release, Avril also released a new t-shirt which benefits The Avril Lavigne Foundation, the singer’s charity which supports individuals living with Lyme disease and other serious illnesses and disabilities.

Watch the incredible video for Head Above Water below.

Head Above Water is now available on iTunes and streaming services.

It currently sits at number one on US iTunes. Not bad for an artist 16 years into their career, eh?
