Avril Lavigne released her self-titled 5th studio record only 7 months ago, and although she is currently on tour, she has already begun working on her next album. According to fans who met her at a meet ‘n greet in California, Avril revealed that she has written and recorded a few songs already. Avril also expressed particular excitement about a song she wrote after the South American leg of her tour ended earlier this month.
Another fan, who also happens to be friends with Avril’s makeup artists, Gabriel Panduro, also has inside information on the new music: He says that Gabriel mentioned that Avril wrote a song while laying on the floor backstage before her show in Rio de Jeneiro, on May 2nd. According to the fan, Gabriel was ready to prepare Avril for the concert when he found her on the floor writing. She wanted to left alone for a while, but she did finish the song and played the show on time.
Avril told the fans that she never really stops going into the studio, so it was unclear how soon these songs would be released.
In June, Avril has talked a little more about her recent inspiration and what would happen with the new songs. Listen to her interview with Rudy Blair from 680 News – Avril begins talking about music about 6:58 into the interview. She also discusses her tour, “Hello Kitty,” and her future goals.
I’ve actually been writing songs. And I don’t usually write on the road, but I’ve been kind of writing stuff on my own lately. But I haven’t been thinking about the next record and what I’m going to do, because I’m on the tour, and we’re really just focused here. But I’m so grateful that I still have this opportunity to make music and to be on the road. And my fans have been so supportive and it’s been incredible.
It is great to know that Avril was writing a lot on her own. Half of the songs on her 4th album,Goodbye Lullaby, were written by just Avril, and her more recent eponymous 5th album features 2 self-written songs. Songs like “Darlin’,” “Falling Fast,” and “Goodbye” show what a talented writer she is even without help from co-writers. It is also interesting that she was so inspired that she was writing on the road. She had not written while touring in many years, so hopefully this meant she was very inspired and driven to make even better music.
Thanks to Avril Bandaids for the exclusive information.
