The wait is finally over. Avril Lavigne has announced that her new single, Head Above Water, will be out on September 19th.
Lavigne’s last new music was released in 2015, before she went public with her battle with Lyme disease. Although her sixth album has been rumoured for quite some time, nothing had been officially said, and Lavigne herself kept out of the spotlight. She posted on social media yesterday though that she’d written a letter to her fans on her website, avrillavigne.com, and in the lengthy letter Lavigne spoke of several thing, including when they could expect new music.
“I spent the last few years at home sick fighting Lyme Disease,” Lavigne wrote. “Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. I wrote songs in my bed and on the couch and recorded there mostly as well. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly. Truly… by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive.”
Lavigne thanks her fans for being patient, and then drops the title of the new single, Head Above Water, and describes where the idea for it came from. “It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story.”
Throughout the rest of the letter, the 33 year old Lavigne tells her fans that she’s ready to talk about her health issues, and wants to help raise awareness for the disease. She also states that she’s “taking her life back” and doing what “I am meant to be doing in this life time.”
With the new single on it’s way, fans of Lavigne can hope that the new album won’t be far behind.

Jason Momoa Shaves Off Beard For A Good Cause
From Game of Thrones, to Aquaman and Frontier, Jason Momoa is front and centre, along with his iconic beard. The actor posted a video on Wednesday though, stating it was time for a change, and shaved for the camera. It wasn’t without a purpose though as one might initially think. The massive actor is trying to raise awareness for aluminum recycling.
“I just want to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet, and I think I have a solution,” Momoa said in the video as he shaved. “I don’t wanna bitch about it, but there’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet, as long as we recycle, and that’s aluminum.”
Momoa goes on to say he’s specifically talking about aluminum cans making a return to replace all the plastic bottles that are used these days. He states that aluminum can continue to be recycled, and that “75 percent of aluminum that’s ever been used is still in circulation today.” He backs himself up with stats too, so it’s not just him talking for the sake of talking. He also says that it only takes 60 days for aluminum cans to go from the recycling bin, to back on the shelves with a new beverage.
One of Momoa’s biggest pet peeves too, was not being able to find water available in aluminum cans. A new product seems to be on the way though to change that, but other than the fact that it will be coming from the Ball Corporation, not much else is known about it.
“There’s a change coming, and it’s aluminum,” Momoa said. “You gotta get rid of your plastic water bottles. Aquaman’s trying to do the best he can for my kids, for your kids, for the world. Love you guys.”
In case you were wondering, it’s been seven years since Momoa had shaved his beard off. He also said he won’t be shaving his head though, as his wife wouldn’t like that.

Billie Eilish’s Debut Album Set To Become The Second-Biggest Album Release of 2019
If you haven’t heard of Billie Eilish before, it’s pretty much a given you will be hearing a lot of her in the future. In the first full week of release, the teenage sensation’s debut album is expected to reach between 250,000 to 275,000 equivalent album units sold, which would make it the second-biggest release of the year.
Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, appears to be only trailing Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” for the title of the biggest 2019 album debuts to date. The album itself has benefitted from strong streaming figures, but also traditional album purchases as well. That in itself is unusual considering Eilish’s fan base has grown up mainly just streaming music, and not buying physical albums. Even more unusual is the fact that 5 of the albums 14 tracks were also released before the album, which usually cuts back on album purchases, yet in this case it doesn’t seen to have affected the sales at all.
Eilish released her debut single, “Ocean Eyes” in 2016, and it quickly went viral and became a huge success. She released an EP in 2017, which was also a huge success. It September 2017 Apple named her as its newest Up Next artist. In her short career, Eilish already has seven gold and two platinum singles.
Apple Set To Launch Their Own TV Streaming Service
Netflix and Amazon might need to be looking over their shoulder, and not at the upcoming Disney streaming service. Apple announced on Monday that their long-anticipated streaming TV service, Apple TV+ is ready to launch, and they’ve brought a lot of heavy hitters along with them for the ride.
When Apple made the announcement on Monday, they bought along Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jason Momoa, Alfre Woodard, and Kumail Nanjiani with them. The presentation stated that Apple TV was set to launch this fall in more than 100 countries.
While Apple didn’t state how much the service would cost when it was finally launched, it did give a glimpse into the kinds of shows we can expect. Speilberg for instance indicated that his 80s science fiction anthology series Amazing Stories, was set to be revived. While Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell would be starring in a new drama called The Morning Show, that they said would take the viewers behind the scenes of morning TV. Other shows on the way include Sara Bareilles and J.J. Abrams’ new series Little Voice, Momoa and Woodard’s drama Seeing, and Nanjiani’s Little America. Apple also announced a new Sesame Street spin-off, Helpsters. Oprah Winfrey was also on hand, but no word was given as to what her role will be, although last year it was announced that she signed a television deal with Apple.
Other series expected on Apple TV+ include a show starring Hailee Steinfeld as Emily Dickinson, the Jennifer Garner series My Glory Was I Had Such Friends, the drama Are You Sleeping starring Octavia Spencer, an adaptation of the book Defending Jacob which will star Chris Evans and a new CIA drama starring Brie Larson.
