Avril Lavigne’s new album, Head Above Water, comes out in just hours. While it includes songs like “Dumb Blonde,” “Tell Me It’s Over,” “Warrior,” and the title track, there are a few songs missing from the 12-track album. Luckily for fans, some of those leftover tracks have just leaked. Fans can hear the highly anticipated recordings of “In Touch,” “Don’t Stop,” and a few other unexpected tracks.
First up is a song fans first heard about in 2017. Pop star Bebe Rexha co-wrote it with Lauren Christy, Christoph Andersson, and Talay Riley. Despite rumors, Bebe Rexha confirmed that she does not sing on the track. Avril likely got the song when she worked with Lauren Christy in the studio in fall 2017. Listen to her recording of “In Touch” below:
Another song title fans have known about for a while, “Don’t Stop” was written by Avril, Lauren Christy, Ketil Johnson, Sebastian Kornelius, and Taylor Parks. It’s the most dynamic song that’s leaked, an unexpected love song that finds Avril trying out new styles. Hear “Don’t Stop” below:
“Break It So Good” – featuring Lauren Christy
A new title, “Break It So Good” seems to be a song Avril worked on with Lauren Christy. (Not only did Lauren co-write some songs on Avril’s new album, she was also behind some of her earliest hits, like “Complicated” and “I’m With You”.) Indeed, Lauren sings throughout this whole leaked track. However, Avril sings on the choruses. Check out the song here:
“I Want What I Want” (Cover)
Continuing with the Lauren Christy theme, check out this cover of her 1997 song! Taken from her sophomore album, Breed, you may recognize “I Want What I Want.” We never knew Avril covered the song, but she sounds great on it! Listen to her cover below:
“Warrior” – Demo & Acoustic
Two alternative recordings of “Warrior” just surfaced. “Warrior” closes out Avril’s new album, Head Above Water, but now fans can hear both a demo and an acoustic recording of the track. Every version of this song is incredible. Listen to the two new leaks below and let us know what you think of them compared to the album version!
A notable song we still haven’t heard is “Lucky Ones,” which Avril recorded with Lauren Christy in fall 2017. They worked on it around the same time they came up with “It Was In Me.”
There are tons of other Avril Lavigne songs fans know about but have never heard. Check out our full list of unreleased songs here:
