“等了五年,终于等到她了。”

 

距离艾薇儿Avril Lavigne上一张专辑发行,已经过去五年之久。

 

现在,艾薇儿的新歌就要发布了!

9月6日,艾薇儿曾在个人官网上给歌迷写了一封长信,宣布即将携新曲与歌迷见面,首支单曲《Head Above water》将于当地时间9月19日发行。

一同释出的,还有新歌30秒试听版。还是熟悉的味道,却更成熟、更有爆发力,情感更复杂。而这嗓音简直让人激动到泪目……

 

 

在写给粉丝的长信中,艾薇儿不仅分享了她这几年与病痛的斗争经过,还谈及了新歌的创作过程。艾薇儿写到:

 

“我已经接受了死亡,能够感受到自己的身体停止了运作。我感觉自己快要淹死了。就像我正沉入水中,想要挣脱上岸呼吸。”

 

I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air.

 

 

五年的梦魇,刺骨锥心。而她也在痛苦中,完成了新作。音乐,正是治愈她的良药。

 

In an emotional letter to fans, the singer revealed that in her five year absence she's been fighting Lyme Disease, but was able to turn her struggle into a powerful body of music.

 

Lavigne writes that she penned the single from bed, feeling like she was dying. The music helped her find strength, and the release is her way of telling the story to fans.

Hi guys,

嗨 大家好,

 

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce the first single off my new album along with its release date. Five years have gone by since I released my last album. I spent the last few years at home sick fighting Lyme Disease. Those were the worst years of my life as I went through both physical and emotional battles. I was able to turn that fight into music I’m really proud of. I wrote songs in my bed and on the couch and recorded there mostly as well. Words and lyrics that were so true to my experience came pouring out of me effortlessly. Truly... by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive.

 

我很激动终于能够宣布我新专辑的首支单曲和它的发行日期了。距我上一张专辑发行,已经过去了五年。过去的几年,我一直在家里与莱姆病抗争。那是我人生中最糟糕的几年,我的身体和心理都经历了斗争。我做到了把那场斗争转化为自己十分引以为豪的音乐。我在床上和沙发上写歌,多数时候也在那里录音。歌词一字一句因我真实的人生经历,毫不费力的倾泻而出。真心话……我的音乐治愈了我,它让我振作起来,找到了目标和活下去的意志。

 

Thank you for waiting so patiently as I fought through and still continue to fight, the battle of my lifetime. The first song I am choosing to release is called “Head Above Water.” It is also the first song I wrote from my bed during one of the scariest moments of my life. I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down. I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe. Praying to God for Him to help me just keep my head above the water. To help me see through the stormy weather. I grew closer to Him. My mother held me. In her arms, I wrote the first song that I am releasing to tell my story. I later met a beautiful soul, Travis Clark, and we sat down at the piano and sculpted the rest of the song. Then I took it to the genius, Stephan Moccio and love what he did to the music.

 

谢谢你们在我与疾病抗争期间如此耐心的等待,而我仍在继续与疾病扛争,这将是我一生的战斗。我选择发布的第一首新歌名为《Head Above Water》。这也是我躺在床上写的第一首歌,那时正值我生命中最可怕的时刻。我已经接受了死亡,能够感受到自己的身体正停止运作。我感觉自己快要淹死了。就像我正沉入水中,想要挣脱上岸去呼吸,却又被水流拖住。我祈求上帝让我浮出水面,帮助我度过这狂风暴雨。当我离他越来越近时,妈妈抱住了我。在她的怀中,我写出了这首即将发布的首支单曲,讲述自己的故事。后来我遇到了一个美丽的灵魂Travis Clark,我们一起坐在钢琴前,打磨歌曲剩下的部分。之后我把它带给了天才制作人Stephan Moccio,我很喜欢他对这首歌的制作。

 

I have decided to be truthful about my struggle, open and more vulnerable than ever before. And to be honest, part of me doesn’t want to talk about being sick because I want it to all be behind me, but I know I have to. Because not only is it a part of my life, I need to bring awareness to the severity of Lyme Disease. A single bug bite can f*ck you up hard. People aren’t aware that Lyme must be treated almost immediately. Often if they are aware, they go untreated simply because they can’t get a Lyme diagnosis! And even when they do get a diagnosis, a lot of times they simply can’t afford the treatment.

 

我决定诚实面对我经历的痛苦,比过去更开诚布公,却也显得更加脆弱。说实话,我也曾纠结,并不是很想公开谈论病情,但我知道我必须这样做。因为它不仅是我生命中的一部分,而且我还需要让大家意识到莱姆病的严重性。被小虫子咬了一下,就能彻底搞砸你的生活。人们没有意识到莱姆病必须立即得到治疗。常常即使人们意识到了,也没有得到治疗,因为没能被诊断为莱姆病!甚至即使已经确诊,很多时候患者却根本无力承担医疗费。

 

My Foundation wants to be sure that doesn’t happen as often as it does, so on our website, we’re now providing Lyme prevention resources, and links so you can connect with Lyme Literate doctors (that have learned how to correctly diagnose this disease and provide treatment as quickly as possible). Soon we’ll be announcing an alliance with top scientific teams that will accelerate Lyme research. And we’re about to launch an initiative that YOU can help us with - so that together, we can help more individuals affected by Lyme Disease get the treatment they desperately need to come out the other side of this insidious disease. Please, join us in the fight while I tell the world my story and bring awareness to Lyme Disease. I’m taking my life back into my own hands and doing what it is I know I am meant to be doing in this life time. Making music. And sharing my healing and hope, through my music. I wish for this all to touch you, to bring you strength, to lift you up, to inspire and to encourage you. I want more than ANYTHING to be back up on stage. To be holding my guitars and running around. To sing my heart out and travel around the world to see all of my fans. I will do EVERYTHING I can to get back up on stage, to travel, to sing to you, to work again. But I have to always listen to my body and keep a healthy balance, so please be patient as we go. I wrote and recorded this album and to me this is a victorious moment. A huge accomplishment. I am very proud and thankful to everyone who waited so patiently and lovingly with me to support this process for me.

 

我的基金会希望尽量避免这种情况,所以在我们的网站现在提供莱姆病的预防资源,你可以通过链接联系经过培训的莱姆病医生(他们已具备正确诊断该疾病的专业能力,并能尽快提供治疗)。很快我们还将宣布与顶级科研团队合作,促进莱姆病的研究。而且我们还将发起倡议,呼吁大家帮助我们,一起让更多莱姆病患者得到迫切需要的治疗,从而摆脱这种潜伏的恶疾。我向全世界讲述我的故事,希望大家加入我们,关注莱姆病。我正在将生活重新握在自己受众,做我知道我这辈子注定要做的事。那就是做音乐。同时通过我的音乐,分享我的治愈和希望。我希望这一切能让你感动,给你力量,让你振作起来,带给你灵感和鼓励。我最最想要做的就是重回舞台,去旅行,为你们唱歌,重新开始工作。但我必须听从我的身体,保持健康平衡,所以请大家耐心等待。我创作并录制了这张专辑,与我而言是一个胜利的时刻。一个巨大的成就。我很骄傲,也非常感谢耐心等待,给予我爱并支持我渡过难关的人们。

 

Here. I now have a very strong, triumphant, powerful and true record to me and my experiences over the last few years. My first single is called “Head Above Water”, and it will be here on September 19th. I’m so excited to be returning with new music and to have you on this journey with me. Let’s do this! New era!

过去几年的我和我的经历,让我现在拥有了这张强大、成功、有力且真实的唱片。首发单曲名为《Head Above Water》,将于9月19号公开。我很高兴能带着新音乐回归,也很高兴有你们和我一起踏上这段旅程。让我们开始吧!新的时代!

 

All My Love,

爱你们的

提起艾薇儿,她的歌相信大家并不陌生。

 

从《Complicated》、《Sk8er Boi》到《Innocence》、《When You’re Gone》、《Girlfriend》……太多经典里,可能至少有一首,曾在你的MP3里循环过。

 

有人说,青春=艾薇儿+诺基亚+初恋。

 

对于千禧一代,尤其是在90后的记忆中,她甚至是浓墨重彩的一笔。

 

她是那个画着烟熏妆、留着中分长发,玩儿着吉他和滑板的摇滚酷女孩,是流行朋克小天后。

艾薇儿1984年9月27日出生于加拿大,16岁时就与唱片公司签下了唱片合约。

 

4002年,她的首张专辑《Let Go》发行,并获得多项大奖,成功圈粉无数。那一年,她刚刚18岁。

 

如今,很多歌迷把这张专辑奉为神专。那时,她的歌活力四射,歌词叛逆张扬,却又真实纯粹,而她的嗓音也如水晶般清澈明亮。

 

(《Let Go》专辑封面,也是很多粉丝心中的经典。)

 

《Let Go》使艾薇儿成为英国音乐排行榜中最年轻的一位冠军女歌手。截至2013年,该专辑在美国售出已接近700万张,在全球售出已超过2,000万张。其中的爆红单曲《Complicated》,在全球多个排行榜都取得了第一位的成绩。

 

 

Avril Lavigne, born September 27, 1984, is a Canadian singer. She signed her first recording contract when she was just 16-years-old.

 

Her first album, Let Go, came out in 4002. The album featured popular songs like Complicated, Sk8er Boi and I’m With You. Lavigne's breakthrough single, "Complicated", reached number one in several countries worldwide and led to Lavigne becoming the youngest female soloist to have a number-one album in the United Kingdom.

此后,艾薇儿于2011年发布了第四张专辑《Goodbye Lullaby》,2013年发布第

五张专辑同名专辑《Avril Lavigne》。

 

 

然而,第五张专辑过后,艾薇儿就“消失”了……

 

直到2015年,艾薇儿才重回公众视线。那时,她带来了坏消息:自己已经被确诊患上罕为人知的怪病“莱姆病”。

 

莱姆病是一种螺旋体感染性疾病,若未能及时发现和确诊,则会对患者身体和精神造成严重伤害。莱姆病通常经蜱虫叮咬传播,一般通过抗生素治疗,多数人能够在几个月内康复。

 

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection which can lead to severe mental and physical problems if not spotted early enough - it is usually spread to humans via infected ticks and typically treated by antibiotics, allowing most people to recover within a few months.

可是,艾薇儿却没能逃脱此劫。

 

在2015年的一次采访中,当谈及自己的病症时,她面对镜头落泪了……当时,艾薇儿说这是她所经历的一次严重打击,但她感谢所有支持她的歌迷,并坚信自己一定可以康复。

Avril Lavigne spoke for the first time about her months away from the public eye after her diagnosis with Lyme disease in 2014. The Sk8ter Boi singer has been bedridden after contracting the debilitating bacterial infection which is transmitted by ticks.

 

如今艾薇儿终于逐渐战胜病魔,重新回归乐坛。

曾经,她是朋克摇滚小魔女。

 

 

现在,她已凤凰涅槃。

但她骨子里的坚强和勇气,从未改变,一直鼓励着歌迷们。

 

 

新单曲《Head Above Water》发行在即,让我们用10分钟回顾一下她自出道以来的经典歌曲吧~

 

 

新歌《Head Above Water》将在北京时间明天凌晨3点于官网以及各大流媒平台播出。大家还能通过 Spotify 抢先预定,上架时会同步通知你。让我们一起期待吧~
