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."
