TOUCHED BY LYME: Avril’s “Warrior” to be Lyme community’s anthem?
Superstar Avril Lavigne unveiled an audio snippet of her new song “Warrior” on social media today–and I predict it will be adopted by the Lyme community as a rallying anthem.
The Canadian singer has been battling Lyme disease for over five years now. A few months ago, she released the single “Head Above Water,” the first of her songs to describe her struggle with tick-borne illness.
Today, she told the world on Instagram: “This is one of the first songs I wrote for the album after Head Above Water. They are both about the health battle I continue to fight every day. I hope my songs can help you find strength if you need it….”

This is one of the first songs I wrote for the album after Head Above Water. They are both about the health battle I continue to fight every day. I hope my songs can help you find strength if you need it… I produced this track, @CBaseford engineered, Chad and @TravisWeTheKings helped me finish it. I had a lot of great people around me helping me to make music again. 🖤🖤🖤 #11Days until #albumrelease!! Pre-order my new album now, link in bio. #AvrilLavigneHeadAboveWater #HeadAboveWater #Warrior
