Fly is a song by Canadian recording artist Avril Lavigne, released on April 16, 2015 by the Special Olympics. Avril released the song as a charity single for The Avril Lavigne Foundation to support the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games. The song was written by Lavigne, Chad Kroeger and David Hodges.
"Fly" was written during the recording sessions for Lavigne's fifth studio album, Avril Lavigne. The song was written and recorded by Lavigne, Kroeger and Hodges in 2012 with the intention of it being on the album, but it didn't make the final cut. Lavigne later mentioned the song in interviews, and after suggestion from her fanbase, she chose to release the song as a charity single. Lyrically, the song sings about overcoming any obstacles someone might face. Originally, the song had a more pop production but Lavigne scrapped it for a more stripped-down, vocal-driven version. According to Lavigne, the song is composed of a "piano, orchestra and kick drum."
