In light of the current global COVID-19 health crisis, eight-time Grammy-nominated pop rock icon Avril Lavigne has released a re-recorded, new version of the Head Above Water album track ‘Warrior,’ fittingly retitled ‘We Are Warriors,’ via BMG.
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 aid in Project Hope’s ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts around the world – including providing personal protective equipment (PPE).
‘We Are Warriors’ takes an anthemic, collective tone to remind listeners of their inner strength and ability to come together in this uncertain and difficult time. The song expands on its original version’s reflection of Lavigne’s own health battle with Lyme disease and her first-hand knowledge of the struggle, hope and determination it takes to overcome.
"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,” Lavigne said 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 than ever right now. Now is the time to fight and to stick together. Be kind, be safe, be a Warrior and support our mission."
