Avril Lavigne just ended her whirlwind “Black Star” tour and tells us that she’s already back in the studio working on what will become her 5th studio album.
“I’m in the studio right now and I’m working with another Canadian guy who is super rad, Chad Kruger from the band Nickelback and David Hodges, he’s also a super talented [producer] who did a lot of Evanescence stuff,” Avril tells us at the launch of her Abbey Dawn collection presented by Just Fabulous.
She also says she’s working with a high profile X-Factor judge, “I’m working with LA Reid and we’re all really excited.”
That will only further fuel the rumors that she is in talks to join the judging panel of The X-Factor. Though when we asked about the judging rumors, she simply says, “I already performed on the X-Factor and that was awesome.”
For now we can absolutely look forward to her new album, which she says is not as “young” but definitely very “fun.”
“I don’t think it’s as young,” she says of her new album, “A lot of acoustic guitars and pianos. There’s a deep message…it’s emotional, [but] it’s a good time because the album is a little more upbeat I think. It’s got some pretty crazy fun songs. It’s about living life and just like making the most of it and having a good time.”
I guess we can expect a classic Avril sound with some more guitar and a lot more fun. Sounds good to me.
