Avril Lavigne to release new album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’

Yes guys- She still exists. After an exceedingly long delay, Avril is releasing her fourth album on March 8, 2011. It is the follow-up to her 2007 album The Best Damn Thing. The album has been finished since 2009, and it was originally slated to be released sometime last year. However, Avril’s record label decided to hold off on its release due to a heavy amount of competition from other female artists- Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Kesha, etc.

The official title of Avril’s fourth album is Goodbye Lullaby.



From what I’ve heard, Avril’s new album is supposed to be her back-to-basics album. A representation of a more “mature, revamped Avril Lavigne”. A collection of personal, introspective songs- much like her first two albums. A departure from the cheesy, girly fun that was brought on by the pop-culture abomination known as Girlfriend.

The following clip *could* be an indication of what her new album *might* be like.



I certainly hope that what I’ve heard is true, and that Avril’s new album isn’t simply a rehashing of her last album. But considering how Max Martin has had his fingerprints on the new album, there are quite a few doubts in the back of my mind.

Regardless of what it is going to sound like, I also hope that Avril’s new album doesn’t ultimately tank like Christina Aguilera’s did last year. But then again, the landscape of the pop music world has changed dramatically since the last time Avril did anything. And there have been so many female artists (both new and old) achieving huge success during her absence from the music industry. If Avril wants to remain relevant and return to prominence, it won’t be hill- It will be a mountain. So I must admit that I have my reservations about Avril’s future.

That’s how I feel about Avril at this stage in her career- almost ten years since her debut. At least it’s something to hold me over until U2 comes back to North America.

Will 2011 be Avril’s year? We shall soon see.

I never thought I'd see the day where there would be competing Avril threads started on the same day on Inteference.

Wow, did this really just happen?

I am completely baffled.

EDIT: Thanks for the merge, mods.

What just happened is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen on Interference.

Let me say, HBK-79, I love that you love Avril. She is a good looking and talented young woman, and those are the best kinds of people on Earth, and they deserve to be admired and appreciated.

I hope you like the new song.

I saw Avril perform last night and my reaction was "What the Hell?" She's got a hit with this song though for sure

I couldn't really hear the song last night while we were watching the show, but Avril looked like she couldn't give a shit during the performance of both it and "Girlfriend". Was very disappointed in the way she appeared to be mailing it in. Will give the song itself another listen though.

The song itself isn't too bad, and will no doubt be all over the radio in coming weeks.

If scrobbling Avril is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Tracklisting!

  1. Black Star
  2. What The Hell
  3. Push
  4. Wish You Were Here
  5. Smile
  6. Stop Standing There
  7. I Love You
  8. Everybody Hurts
  9. Not Enough
  10. 4 Real
  11. Darlin
  12. Remember When
  13. Goodbye
  14. Alice (hidden track)
I'm not one to judge a book by its cover. But these song titles are kind of uninspiring. Oh well. At least there are no songs with titles like Sk8er Boi.

And I hope she didn't take it upon herself to cover that R.E.M. song. That would not be cool.

I have no idea if that's real or not, because I have no idea if this album is a covers project.

If it's real, I'll say "huh, interesting, good for her. Shame about picking that REM song."

If that's fake, I'll say " well-played, LeMel."

I wish it were real. These crappy titles just confirm that Avril has gotten as lazy as Ashley said she was on New Year's. End of the world. /U2 fan

On second look, I should have gotten the joke with the Beatles comment. Ha.

At first I read that as "lazy as Ashley was" and I was like, "Buh? What did I do?"

The tracklisting is real. It came directly from her official website.

It's not going to be an all-covers album. Quite frankly, I don't know where Avril is going with this. Supposedly, this new album is kind of like her diary.

I don't think Avril put a whole lot effort into this new album. After all- She did spend the past two years launching her own clothing line, promoting her own array of fragrances, getting a divorce, dating a loser, and frolicking at the beach.

How the hell did she have the time to write and record a new album?
