Avril Lavigne Here's To Never Growing Up

Avril Lavigne's "Here's To Never Growing Up" will officially begin the countdown to her fifth studio album when it is released to iTunes next week on April 9, 2013. The new song was produced and co-written by Martin Johnson, front man of the group Boys Like Girls. Former Evanescence band member David Hodges and Dr. Luke protege Jacob Kasher also contributed their songwriting talents. Avril Lavigne will be looking for a commercial renaissance after her most recent album Goodbye Lullaby was released to disappointing sales. She has promised that the upcoming album is a return to more upbeat, fun music.

Avril Lavigne broke into the pop mainstream with the massive hit debut single "Complicated" in 2002 and the album Let Go which sold over six million copies in the US alone. Avril Lavigne has released four top 10 selling studio albums, three of them have been certified platinum. She has also reached the top 10 on the pop singles chart five times including the #1 smash "Girlfriend."

I hate when artists make it out like their last project failed because it was the wrong style. It failed because it wasn’t very good. How about a return to good music? That’s really all anybody cares about.

she didnt say a word about why it failed, the reviewer did, and in this case iut did not fail because it was bad… it was actually a beautiful album and done for more artistic purposes than her prior ones. Unfortunately it did not have the beats and hooks that dominated the radio at the time, combine that with a very public feud with your label and it is no surprise the album underperformed com pared to her prior ones. I have no doubt this upcoming one will align much closer with the contemporary trends in the music scene… but again, her last record was comprised of a lot of deeper, slower, and – as the title suggested – almost a lullaby of sorts. she did say this one will be more upbeat and fun but thats not making excuses for the last ones sales, its a statement about te styule of the albums. The reviewer assumes she is out for redemption, and most likely is correct, but not fair to blame the artist being reviewed for informing us the sound her album will have
