For the past week, Avril Lavigne and a talented team have worked hard filming the music video for her upcoming comeback single. One or two days is standard for most music videos. Seven is virtually unheard of! But if anyone deserves it, it’s Avril. After releasing her self-titled fifth album in 2013, Avril came down with Lyme disease in late 2014. Three years ago, she confirmed her illness, but also stated that it gave her a new perspective on life. She was already writing songs, and now, after over a year of recording, Avril has a new album ready for release.
The lead single is expected out next month. We don’t know much about the song yet, but the music video looks stunning already. Director Elliott Lester shot scenes in Iceland last weekend before returning to Los Angeles. There, Avril filmed her parts – in water, in front of a green screen, and more – from Wednesday through today.
In a post today, Avril said that she’s been planning this music video for more than two years. This is the first video that will relay Avril’s story – probably of battling Lyme disease. Check out the behind-the-scenes shots from the 7-day video shoot below:
That’s a wrap after 7 days of shooting ! 🎬🎥🎶 Elliott, you’re brilliant and insane and I love you. Thank you for going above and beyond and seeing my vision and bringing it to life. I’ve been planning this video for over two years. I’m so passionate about this record, and my first video that will relay my story. Thank you to the crew and everyone on Team Lavigne for busting your butts to make this all come together. 🙏🏻💙🎬🎥🎼⚓️
Avril’s comeback single and music video will be out in September, with the album expected later this year. It’s exciting to finally be this close to hearing Avril’s new music. With the passion and involvement she put into this record, we’re sure it will be her best yet. While we count down the days, catch up on all that went into making this new album. Keep checking back here for all the latest Avril Lavigne music news. There will be plenty coming up in the next few months!
