Avril Lavigne Goes Acoustic For New Album
Avril Lavigne‘s upcoming fourth album will be taking a completely different approach to her music.
“A lot of the songs are mainly the acoustic and my vocal,” the 24-year-old Canadian singer told Billboard. “It’s a lot different from anything I’ve done before. It’s not a pop-rock record. This is more about emotion and feeling.”
Avril also tells EW, “This record, I just really, really wanted to sing. We started recording each song, some of them, just with acoustic guitar and the vocal and building it from there. Itâ€™s stripped down. I love performing that way, so I really felt like it was time to make a record like that. To just make it all about the vocal and the performance, and the vibe, and the emotion.”
Avril‘s still-untitled album is set for a November 17th release. Below is a snippet of one of the album’s songs, “Black Star” (also the name of Avril‘s fragrance of the same name).
