Simple Plan is finishing up their fifth studio album, and although it’s still a few months away from release, they have just revealed a few new song titles and info on collaborations. Frontman Pierre Bouvier did a live Facebook chat with excited fans today, and told his thousands of viewers about some of the new tracks.
“I Refuse” is one of the heavier songs that will be on their new album, and it has an anti-bullying message. Even though the band members are in their 30s and three of them have kids, bullying is still a very real presence for them and an important issue they wanted to tackle in their music.
On a lighter note, Pierre’s favorite new song is called “Kiss Me Like Nobody’s Watching.” He didn’t say anything else about it, but if it’s an album highlight it will be exciting to hear it!
Simple Plan’s newest single, “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed,” just came out today. It features rapper Nelly, and Pierre promises that some other new songs will have features as well. There is no word yet on who the collaborators are or which songs they will appear on, but it will be worth the wait to find out.
