After a long absence due to a mysterious illness, Avril Lavigne seems ready to return to the spotlight. The Canadian singer took to Twitter on Monday (Feb. 2) to tease a new music video for “Give You What You Like,” a track off of her self-titled fifth studio album, which was released in November 2013.
It follows the album's three previous singles, “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” “Rock N Roll” and “Hello Kitty.”
In the 30-second teaser, the Juno nominee belts out the heartbreak ballad as a fire burns in the background. The music video also features scenes from the Lifetime television movie Babysitter's Black Book, which premieres on Feb. 21 and uses the song in its soundtrack.
Last month, the 30-year-old songstress teased a new song on Twitter called “Fly” on Twitter, revealing that the song’s uplifting lyrics were helping her cope with her issues and supports the Special Olympics through her Avril Lavigne Foundation.
Fans are understandably excited over news that the pop star is feeling well enough to promote her album after revealing that she was suffering from an undisclosed illness late last year. “I’m not feeling well. I’m having some health issues. So please keep me in your prayers," she wrote in a private message to a fan on Twitter.
The singer’s rep later confirmed to Billboard that her secret health battle was not a result of pregnancy. When asked to elaborate on the nature of Avril’s sickness, there was no further comment. Right before Christmas, Avril also took to Twitter to dispel rumours that she was in rehab.
The blond beauty, who is married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, has not yet disclosed any further details about her illness, but Avril’s health battle may also explain why the singer hasn’t been seen out with her husband in recent months.
Sources had made claims that the Canadian couple was set to divorce after just one year of matrimony, though Chad seemed to deny the reports via a cryptic tweet in September, which made reference to "rumours and lies.”
