Welcome back, Avril Lavigne! Our favorite pop punk princess reappeared on the red carpet after a years-long hiatus. Lavigne appeared at the 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala at The Beverly Hilton on April 20th and confirmed that yes, a new album will be out soon.

Lavigne has been out of the spotlight due to health concerns. Back in 2014, she was diagnosed with Lymes Disease, a condition that left her lightheaded, destroyed her appetite, and kept her bedridden for five months. But according to an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she’s been doing much better.

We can’t wait to hear it! According to Lavigne, she wrote them herself and they’re unlike her past material.

Of course, Lavigne looked amazing during the rare appearance. She opted for a floor-length, black Galia Lahav dress with sheer sleeves, a deep v-neck, and silver embellishments.

She completed the look with a dramatic statement necklace, black peep-shoe heels, and her hair long and loose. And as expected, her smkey eye was on point.

We have a feeling that Avril Lavigne is going to have an incredible comeback, and we can’t wait to hear music that reflects her more recent journey and experiences.
