Avril Lavigne describes new record as 'emotional' but 'fun'
Avril Lavigne has revealed several details about her forthcoming fifth studio album, describing it as ‘emotional’ but ‘fun’.
The 27-year-old, who has just come off the back of her lengthy 'Black Star' worldwide tour, told the Stereotude website at the launch of her new Abbey Dawn collection that she’s working with several big names on the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Goodbye Lullaby.’
“I’m in the studio right now and I’m working with another Canadian guy who is super rad, Chad Kroeger from the band Nickelback and David Hodges, he’s also a super talented [producer] who did a lot of Evanescence stuff.”
The ‘What The Hell’ star also confirmed that she’s teaming up with The X-Factor USA judge L.A. Reid, fuelling speculation that Lavigne may be in talks to join the judging panel. But when asked about the rumours, she brushed the question off, simply stating: “I already performed on the X-Factor and that was awesome.”
She also went onto describe the sound of the album, adding: “I don’t think it’s as young. A lot of acoustic guitars and pianos. There’s a deep message…it’s emotional, [but] it’s a good time because the album is a little more upbeat I think. It’s got some pretty crazy fun songs. It’s about living life and just like making the most of it and having a good time.”
