    On her sixth full-length album and debut for BMG, Head Above Water, AVRIL LAVIGNE holds nothing back. Over the course of the record, she details each trial and tribulation from a perspective of triumph and emerges stronger than ever before. You’re hearing the songstress as she was always meant to sound.

    I hope they're not gonna push this back endlessly and release it this year.

    Please no. She'll get lost during Q4. She has to wait until early 2019 to release the album and go with another single first (unless the single takes off and becomes a sleeper hit, which may happen...)

    It is not a problem per se if it debuts outside of the top 10 in Q4. Christina Aguilera's 'Stripped' or Beyoncé's 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' initially had had some low debuts internationally due to heavy Q4 competition but ended up rebounding and having some nice longevity in the next year due to successful singles. So the debut position only says that much.

    I think the only way Head above water could become a sleeper hit is if Avril does a lot of promo for the song outside America. A performance on a big UK tv show would surely help boost the profile of the song to those who aren't aware that the song exists (no radio or music video airplay as yet from what i can gather atm isn't helping matters :( :evil: ).

    The whole albums market is so different now to 2002 and 2008 with the "s" word being more of a playing factor than anything else. Very few albums these days (especially in the UK) enter outside the top 10 and go on to achieve greater success following a successful 2nd or 3rd single release. Only if the album is released after the successful 2nd or 3rd single but certainly not before.

    Who cares?

    Fans care more about sales than artists do. Y’all have a degree in economics or what?

    Do you really want to attack people who only want their favourite musicians to do well? It’s not something anyone can talk about in real life, this thread should be a safe place to discuss anything related to the album.

    Love the colors and background of the cover, but the “naked behind a guitar” thing is hella cheesy

    This looks way better in HQ:

    I understand why some fans are unhappy with this cover, at least with its execution, but it totally fits her vision for this album:
    her being "naked" represents vulnerability, being unprotected during her struggle with the Lyme disease, but on the other hand, she managed to keep her head above water thanks to her music (the guitar), which was a key factor of the healing process.
    She seems way more comfortable about her music and most importantly she's in full control of the whole record.

    I am more than curious what she cooked up in the kitchen.

    Very happy she murdered the Sk8er Girl by now and goes for a more bare sound scheme.
