Has The World Forgotten About Avril Lavigne?

Eight years ago, a young sassy punk singer from Canada took the world by storm with a little song called “Complicated”. No one expected Avril Lavigne to become one of the best selling female artists of all time. Avril continued her success with singles like, “Sk8er Boi””, “Noboby’s Home”, and the classic, “My Happy Ending”. But in 2007, everyone became a bit confused with Avril. The lead single from her third LP “The Best Damn Thing” showed the once “punk” singer, going in a more “Pop” direction. Her first single “Girlfriend” went on to have success, but it left her fans startled by the big change.

Avril hasn’t released an album since, and many say it’s because of the accusations of her no longer making real music. But in recent news, it has been confirmed that Avril has been working on a fourth album, and will release a new single for the movie “Alice In Wonderland” very soon. But is the world ready for Avril to make a comeback? And more importantly, is Avril ready?

I say that if Avril is ready to make music like she did back in 2003, then i’m all for a comeback. But if she is going to make music like her unpleasing “Girlfriend”, then I think she should just stay where she was. Maybe some of her fans will stick with her, but I think Real music fans will see past the catchy music. Avril needs to look back to the music she did before, and make sure she still has it. I am not saying I don’t want Avril to release another album, because I do. What I am saying is that, I hope she releases good music, and doesn’t just comeback out for the money. So what do you think? Will you support Avril if she release a new album?

Check out Avril’s single , “Nobody’s Home” below, and “Girlfriend” below that, to see the difference between the orginality in her music from 2003 to 2007.

“Alice Underground”, the lead single from the soundtrack of Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” is expected to leak any day now!

ROLLING STONE ARTICLE: Avril Lavigne Strips Down Sound for Introspective November LP, delayed until early to mid 2010

Rolling Stone hits the studio with Avril Lavigne, who’s hooking up musically with husband Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 on her next disc, for a progress report in our new issue. The big news: Lavigne isn’t looking to repeat the success of 2007’s smash single “Girlfriend,” nor is she looking to maintain her status as punk-pop’s snotty princess. On the as-yet-untitled November disc, Lavigne says she’s aiming for a more introspective sound with a stripped-down rock record driven by acoustic guitars.

“Life, that’s what this record is about,” Lavigne tells Rolling Stone. “It’s so easy for me to do a boy-bashing pop song, but to sit down and write honestly about something that’s really close to me, something I’ve been through, it’s a totally different thing.” Even though Lavigne is stepping away from the power-punk, she still packs the catchy hooks on songs like “Darlin’,” which was the second song Lavigne ever wrote as a 15-year-old living in Napanee, Ontario. Butch Walker also worked on Lavigne’s fourth LP.

While Lavigne’s previous albums hid her voice behind walls of production, her vocals are front-and-center on new tracks like “Everybody Hurts.” Other titles include “Black Star,” which was originally going to be the theme song for Avril’s fragrance of the same name, and “Fine.” “My last record was about loud guitars and energy, but this I wanted to really feel my music,” Lavigne told RS.
