Speaking to Kerrang! about working with Avril and her motivations for the collab, WILLOW revealed:​“If I was going to do pop-punk I had to go far and beyond. I had to go the full mile. The fact that Avril has been doing pop-punk music for so long gives her the power of just killing it. Like, there is no world where this is not going to be fire. So that was super-inspiring…”

In other news, in February this year, Avril confirmed that her upcoming pop-punk album was finished – and there’s new music on the way: It’s done!” she wrote to a fan. Music coming soon. For sure summer.” The musician had previously been in the studio with MOD SUN, John Feldmann and Machine Gun Kelly.

Sing along with the lyrics below (via Genius):

[Chorus: WILLOW]

I’ve been putting work in, healing myself
Still got room to grow
I’ve been really searching, emotional wealth
Honestly my heart is broke
I just need to grow, grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow
I just need to, I just need to grow

[Verse 1WILLOW]

Every time I look at my face
I feel everything is the same wrong pace
Cause no-one ever truly knows just who they are
And I feel closer knowing I don’t have to hide my scars

[Pre-Chorus: WILLOW]

I hope you know you’re not alone
Being confused ain’t right or wrong
You’ll find that you’re your own best friend
And no, that ain’t a fuckin’ metaphor

[Chorus: WILLOW]

I’ve been putting work in, healing myself
Still got room to grow
I’ve been really sеarching, emotional wealth
Honestly my hеart is broke
I just need to grow, grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow
I just need to, I just need to grow

[Verse 2: Avril Lavigne]

Every time I look at my face
I get up and feel like I lost my weight
Cause no-one ever truly knows just who they are
And I feel closer when I’m laying looking at the stars

[Pre-Chorus: Avril Lavigne]

I hope you know you’re not alone
Being confused ain’t right or wrong
You’ll find that you’re your own best friend
And no, that ain’t a fuckin’ metaphor

[Chorus: Avril Lavigne]

I’ve been putting work in, healing myself
Still got room to grow
I’ve been really searching, emotional wealth
Honestly my heart is broke
I just need to grow, grow, grow
Grow, grow, grow (I just need to grow)
Grow, grow, grow
I just need to, I just need to grow
