Given that Avril Lavigne, like many other bands and artists had to postpone her UK shows, we’ve been hoping that we’d hear from our favourite rock chick soon. Today, she released her newly re-titled and re-recorded single We Are Warriors.

Based on her track Warrior from her sixth studio album Head Above Water, Avril has quite fittingly changed the lyrics of the song from “I’m a warrior”, to “We are warriors” given this strange situation that we all find ourselves within, fighting against it together.

Avril said: “I felt the need to do something to honor all of the frontline workers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. From the doctors, nurses, police, fire fighters, grocery workers, delivery services, all essential workers and the brave volunteers. I am humbled with gratitude and want to dedicate my new song ‘We Are Warriors’ to everyone putting their lives at risk to keep us safe,” Avril says of the track. “You guys are the ones that are holding the world up right now and we’re all counting on you and relying on you. You are Warriors! We all need each other more then ever right now. Now is the time to fight and to stick together. Be kind, be safe, be a Warrior and support our mission at www.CharityStars.com/Warrior.”

Coinciding with the song’s release, The Avril Lavigne Foundation has partnered with Project Hope, a global health organization dedicated to placing power in the hands of local health care workers across the globe, who are currently providing support on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak. All net proceeds from sales and streams of “We Are Warriors” and its accompanying video will help Project Hope’s ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts around the world – including providing personal protective equipment (PPE).
