Avril Lavigne's New Album is 'The Best'

Published: 2006-12-19
Avril Lavigne has just wrapped up recording her new album and wanted her fans, at least the ones on Myspace, to be the first to know about it.

The newly married Mrs. Deryck Whibley posted a blog on her official Myspace page after doing some press for her new song "Keep Holding On" from the soundtrack to the movie Eragon, "I keep getting asked about my record and what it is called....so I wanted to give u guys all the info directly....so.... I'm calling the record "The best Dam Thing".....and the first single is called "Girlfriend"... the single comes out February....and the record in April......."

Lavigne goes on to say that the new record is worthy follow up to her 2002 record Let Go and her sophomore release Under My Skin, "I promise you guys will LOVE this record, it is my favorite one!!! And I can't wait!!!!! It is really fast, fun, young, bratty, aggressive, confident, cocky in a playful way....all the good stuff. This record will make a great live show, and that's what I had in mind while writing it! My last tour helped inspire me. So because I am a touring artist and spend so much of my time playing live shows, I wanted to make sure the songs were fun. Fun for the fans and myself. I will only have like 3 slow songs on the record. yay!! I am working on my last song right now in the studio. I should be all wrapped up by Moday in time for the Christmas holidays. So I will check in with u guys soon."

I recall her saying that her second album was going to be "dark" and "serious." Now she's got her mind set on a "young, bratty, aggressive, and confident album" What's her third one going to be? "Introspective" "Meaningful" and "Written by somebody else"

I have to agree whole heartedly with annonymous, and I had to smile at the prospective vision for the next record. It rings very true. Coming from someone who once had enough pride to say they were not going to be controlled by the media, or anyone else in the industry, "Sell-out" is another word that comes to mind. As long as the record has chart topping sales, I doubt very much if the artist could care less about the depth and meaning of the album. As long as the old bank balance doesn't hit under 6 digits, we're all good. So much for being original! So much for not being controlled. Welcome another puppet to music industry. I wouldn't walk to my front door to meet her, or listen to her album. Judging by the last disaster, someone would have to pay ME to take it!

#2 - If Avril rocked so much to begin with, then why did she need to change?

I was a big fan of avril with her first two albums. The lyrics and music were great but this new album so far is NOT, with the exception of "keep holding on" and "when you're gone" which I think are great. On the songs "girlfriend", "I can do better" and "everything back but you" the lyrics are ridiculous and the music is hideous. She sounds like a little girl which she is obviously not anymore. I am in no way jealous of her-trust me and I still think she rocks- just not like before, although I am happy that she is so in love and looking beautiful and I wish her success in the future. By the way, ignorant, idol-worshipping, teeny boppers need not respond,LOL.

Avril's old music was really good. but her newest album is awesome "the best damn thing" i love it! When "girlfriend" came out i listened to it non stop and the music video was really good.

I liked Avril more in the punk way though..and how she sings in "girlfriend" its just so different..i love it..but its just not what i was expecting at all

I understand all your feelings about Avril going from punk to almost a "pop" star, but it is a new step in her life. I also don't appreciate the way some people are saying "sell out" and things like that. Maybe her songs were punk when she was a teenager trying to find herself in this world. Now she is married and found true happiness. You agreed with how her songs back then corresponded to her feelings, then why would they not be the same now? Her feelings of singing upbeat songs are not to sell records, but to express now that she is happy and that she grew up. Everyone grows up.
