BILLBOARD INTERVIEW: Avril Lavigne: New Album Is 'All Over The Place'

Avril Lavigne: New Album Is 'All Over The Place'


Singer's fifth full-length will include pop-rock tunes, piano ballads and a Marilyn Manson collaboration.

First, a clarification: when Avril Lavigne kicks off her new single "Here's To Never Growing Up" with the line "Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs," she is not talking about "The Gloaming."

"'Creep'!" she exclaims when asked about the line. The explanation makes sense: like the 1992 Radiohead classic, "Here's To Never Growing Up" features a fat, sweeping hook that's more fun to sing along to with a handful of other people by your side. The lead single from Lavigne's forthcoming fifth album, due out this summer, was released on late Monday night (Apr. 8), and previews what the 28-year-old singer-songwriter describes as a highly eclectic new full-length.

"The record's really diverse," Lavigne tells Billboard. "We've got these pop-rock tunes, and then these piano ballads with orchestras. I have a heavier song that Marilyn Manson's on called 'Bad Girl,' and then I've got a song called 'Hello Kitty' that sounds like nothing I've done before. 'Here's To Never Growing Up' is one of the rock tunes on it, but it's all over the place."

The still-untitled new LP is a departure for Lavigne in the sense that the album marks her first new record for Epic after leaving RCA Records. But the follow-up to 2011's "Goodbye Lullaby" will likely be a radical thematic change from its predecessor: that album, led by the single "What The Hell," was a more pensive effort that was co-produced by the singer's ex-husband, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. "Goodbye Lullaby's" commercial performance was also underwhelming, selling 363,000 copies to date according to Nielsen SoundScan (Lavigne's best-seller is her 2002 debut "Let Go," with 6.8 million copies sold).

iTunes has replaced their "Here's To Never Growing Up" with the uncensored version. If you have already bought it, apparently (I have not done this so don't get mad at me if it doesn't work) you can delete the one you already bought, and iTunes will let you re-download for free (since this one is just a replacement and not an actual different audio file). Enjoy!

Avril was with Ryan Seacrest this morning for the radio debut of "Here's To Never Growing Up". Here is a summary of what they talked about (Chad was also with her)

- Since Avril loves Hello Kitty so much there is a song on the new record called "Hello Kitty". It's an "aggressive" song and sounds like nothing she has ever done before. She also sings in Japanese on the song!
- Avril loves a song called "Bad Girl" and its a heavier sounding song and Marilyn Manson is featured on it! WOW!!
- "Here's To Never Growing Up" was recorded about a month ago and LA Reid wanted to release it right away but Avril wanted to wait
- Avril is STILL IN THE STUDIO recording the new album. She has one more song to write still
- A lot of "power ballads" on the new album. Piano and string ballads, and a duet with Chad!
- Avril and Chad have a song that they wrote that they will be using especially for the wedding! AWWWW :)
- The wedding will be smaller, but still spectacular and with a theme

And the most important...
- Avril said that the fifth album will be released THIS SUMMER!

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
with the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
Got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk
singing “here's to never growing up"

Call up all our friends
Go hard this weekend
for no damn reason
I don’t think we’ll ever change

Meet you at the spot
Half past 10 o’clock
We don’t ever stop
And we’re never gonna change

Say, won’t you say forever
Stay, if you stay forever
Hey, we can stay forever young

Chrous:
Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
with the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
Got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk
singing, “here's to never growing up"

We'll be running down the street yellin' "Kiss my ass",
I'm like "yeah whatever we're still living like that",
When the sun's going down we’ll be raising our cups
singing, “here’s to never growing up"
Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh
Here’s to never growing up
Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh
Here's to never growing up

We live like rock stars
Dance on every bar (HEY!)
This is who we are
I don’t think we’ll ever change

They say “just grow up”
But they don’t know us (HELL NO!)
We don’t give a fuck
And we’re never gonna change

Say, won’t you say forever
Stay, if you stay forever
Hey, we can stay forever young

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
with the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
Got a bottle of whatever but it's getting us drunk
singing, “here's to never growing up"

We'll be running down the street yellin' "Kiss my ass",
I'm like "yeah whatever we're still living like that",
When the sun's going down we’ll be raising our cups
singing, “here’s to never growing up"
Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh
Here’s to never growing up
Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh
Here's to never growing up

Say, won’t you say forever
Stay, if you stay forever
Hey, we can stay forever young
