Surprise, Avril Lavigne fans! Avril appears on a brand new song called “Wings Clipped” alongside Anthony Green. The song comes from Chameleon, the debut EP by production duo Grey. Made up of brothers Kyle and Michael Trewartha, Grey recently launched their music career with their hit “Starving” featuring Hailee Steinfeld and Zedd.
“Wings Clipped” starts with a strummed acoustic guitar and seemingly sunshiny vibes. Avril chimes in, singing about Sundays and learning things the hard way as the song moves into darker territory. The song suddenly gets edgier as electric guitar takes over ahead of a chopped-vocal breakdown. Avril’s part ends here, with Anthony Green taking over the song’s second verse and chorus. It’s an enchanting song, and presents an exciting new direction for Avril and music in general.

Meanwhile, Avril is busy recording her sixth studio album. Though originally slated for a 2017 release, it’s looking more and more like 2018 will be the lucky year. It will serve as the long-awaited followup to Avril’s eponymous 2013 album, and the first with her new label, BMG.
While Avril finishes up in the studio, “Wings Clipped” will be more than enough to endure the wait. Enjoy the new song, and catch up on all we know about Avril’s upcoming album. Keep checking back here for all the latest music news.
