Avril Lavigne has announced her new album, ‘Head Above Water’.
The long-awaited full-length will be released on 15th February, preceded by both her comeback single of the same name, and now new track ‘Tell Me It’s Over’ too.
“I feel like I’ve really opened up on this record more than I ever have before,” she explains. “Each song tells a story that will hopefully inspire others to believe in themselves and stand up for what they know is right and what they truly deserve!
“’Tell Me It’s Over’ is an anthem about being strong, finally putting your foot down and closing the door on a relationship that you know is wrong after time and time again of falling for their games.” says Lavigne of the new track. “If someone doesn’t treat you the way you deserve to be treated, don’t put up with it. It’s understandably so hard because in the past every time you saw them, they sucked you in and you fell right back into their web, but not anymore starting now!
“The vocals and the lyrics are very vulnerable which is reflective of the feelings I had in relationships like these. I wanted to write something classic and have been inspired by some of the timeless queens I listen to every day at home, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. They represent women who stand up for women and aren’t going to put up with a man’s bullshit anymore!”

1. Head Above Water
3. I Fell In Love With The Devil
4. Tell Me It’s Over
5. Dumb Blonde
