In 2014, Lavigne was diagnosed with Lyme disease and has kept out of the spotlight, updating fans from time to time on her well-being and progress. At the end of last year, the "Complicated" singer announced that she would be releasing a new album in 2017, her first since 2013's self-titled LP.
Lavigne began production on her sixth studio album in May, sharing a picture of herself sitting at the piano.
"Officially beginning production this week for the album. Wahoo. Almost there. Been pouring my heart and soul into writing these new songs for you guys. Can't wait !!!! #AL6," she wrote.
