What we know about Avril Lavigne’s new album

Pop-punk’s princess Avril Lavigne talks reclaiming her crown with upcoming album.

Two decades after getting “Complicated,” Lavigne says she’ll release her (currently untitled) seventh album.

Avril Lavigne has recorded many collaborations for new album, MarkMeets have been informed.

Avril Lavigne’s new album will feature “the most” collaborations she’s ever had thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
The new release celebrates how pop-punk is once again having a moment in mainstream music. But this time the singer-songwriter, 37, is doing it her way.

The ‘With You’ hitmaker will release her new record next month and told fans the coronavirus pandemic worked in her favour because so many musicians were stuck in Los Angeles and so it was easier to get them into the recording studio without having so many commitments to coordinate.

I’m really stoked about the new music and just in such a good place. We’re all having so much fun. I really went back to what sounds I originally was influenced by at the beginning of my career, she told MarkMeets.com

She said recently: “I have a bunch of different features on the record, the most I have had before, as everyone was in town.”

The 37-year-old singer described the as-yet untitled album as a “love letter to women and self-empowerment”.

She added during an Instagram Live: “The spirit and the energy of this record is so much fun.”

The new album is about about love and reflecting on the last couple of years and what I’ve been through and my ups and downs with album being released through Travis Barker’s DTA records and Avril recently praised the Blink-182 rocker for being a “blast” to work with.

She said: “Well, it all started with Blink 182 being one of my favourite bands.

“And I have admired Travis my entire career.

“We worked together on ‘The Best Damn Thing’ on that album and he played drums.


“And then on this, Travis is producing, we’re writing together and we just had such a blast collaborating in the studio.

“Now, I’m signed to DTA Records, which is his label, and it just felt like a natural fit it and it made sense.

“And I think creatively, we just click, he gets me. Working with Travis, you’re totally right.

“Where he’s like, ‘Well, what do you want?’ And he’s like, ‘Here’s my opinion. Here’s what I think.’ But ultimately he’s like, ‘I want it to be your decision. I want you to be happy with it.’

“Because he gets it because he’s an artist. He’ll like to sit around, chat with me, give me his opinion and feedback.

But ultimately of course I’m going to listen to him, but he’s like, ‘Make the decision for yourself.’ So yeah, it’s been cool.”
