It was only one month ago that we learned Avril Lavigne was recording music with MOD SUN and producer John Feldmann. Then last week, they teased a new single coming our way. Today, fans can hear their new collaboration “Flames,” the third single from MOD SUN’s upcoming fourth album, and the only one to feature a guest artist.
Over gentle piano and acoustic guitar, Avril starts the song, crooning a pop melody about still burning for a loved one. After her intro chrous, MOD SUN breaks in, singing the verses with angst and power against a backdrop moody instruments. On following choruses verse, the two sing together, adding new layers and depth to the track. “Flames” is a short song, but it packs a punch and is sure to be a hit.

More From Avril
Avril’s last album, Head Above Water, came out in February 2019. It launched the singles “Head Above Water,” “Tell Me It’s Over,” “Dumb Blonde,” and “I Fell In Love With The Devil.” Last spring, she reworked its closing song, “Warrior,” to fit the COVID-19 pandemic. Renamed “We Are Warriors,” its proceeds have gone to help those in need during this pandemic.
In October, Avril appeared on Tommee Profitt’s new Christmas album, The Birth Of A King, singing an epic cover of “What Child Is This?”
In the last several months, Avril revealed that she’s been writing a lot of new songs during self-isolation. While there’s no timeframe for when we’ll get to hear own new music, it’s great to know that she’s feeling inspired and recording new material. We’re loving “Flames,” and are excited to hear how her album will sound, too!
Beyond music, Avril has also stated that she plans to write a cookbook. Avril has talked about her love of cooking for years – at least as far back as Under My Skin in 2004 – and has been sharing Instagram stories from her kitchen lately. We’d be happy to get a new kind of creative project from Avril, and a cookbook sounds great!
