This is very exciting news — Avril Lavigne is coming out with new music. Our childhood “Sk8ker Boy” hearts can barely handle the excitement.

It looks like it’s going to be a very happy New Year for the 32-year-old singer — and all of her fans of course.

On Sunday, the “Complicated” singer announced that she’s releasing a new album — her sixth studio album — come 2017 and we are freaking out.

“Hi Everyone!! I wanted to first thank my fans for your patience & support during my time away throughout my battle with Lyme Disease over the past 2 years,” Lavigne began her Instagram announcement.

This sixth album will be the Canadian singer’s first new music release since she was diagnosed with Lyme disease over a year and a half ago.

Her strength through her battle with her condition has been so inspiring and we can’t wait to see what she’s been working on in the studio.

“I’m really happy to announce that I am now working on new music and I will be releasing a new album in 2017,” Lavigne wrote on the artsy picture.

Ah, and what an amazing 2017 it will be indeed!
