Avril Lavigne has been busy in the studio the past two months, hard at work on her upcoming 7th album. She and her “Jam Fam” — herself, MOD SUN, and producer John Feldmann — have already released one song from the sessions: “Flames,” which will appear on MOD SUN’s new album, Internet Killed The Rockstar, due out on February 12th. However, Avril’s own album is still in the works. Based on some newly surfaced photos, we now know of 17 new songs that may end up on her upcoming record.
Check out the list of 17 new songs here:
- Deja Vu
- Love Sux
- Me, Myself, & I
- Californyeah! (ft. MOD SUN)
- Burn Out
- Kiss Me Just Like The World Is Ending
- Pity Party
- Eternally [note: in Christmas Eve photo, this track shows the word “Happy,” though it’s unclear if that was the full title then]
- Dancing With A Hurricane
- Bite Me (ft. Marshmello)
- Too Free To Live [?]
- Boys Lie (ft. Machine Gun Kelly)
- Take My Breath
- Dare To…. [final words unintelligible]
All of those song titles come from recent content shared on Instagram. The first picture, shown below, appeared in an Instagram story that producer John Feldmann shared on December 24th. In the right side of the photo, you can see part of the blackboard, which includes a list of song titles. The second image was taken from a video shared by the label Big Noise, tagging John Feldmann. It shows the same blackboard, but now we can see it in full and make out most of the song titles.
It’s awesome that they’ve already recorded so many songs! At this rate, we could have Avril’s new album out by summertime!
Recent Studio Time & “Flames”
It was only early last month that we learned Avril Lavigne was recording music with MOD SUN and producer John Feldmann. At the end of December, Machine Gun Kelly joined our trio in the studio. Travis Barker has also been involved. The trio has continued recording music for Avril’s own upcoming album. She’s said it will be more rock than what she’s done recently, and if “Flames” is anything to go by, we can expect that to be true. It’s possible we’ll hear some of Avril’s new music later this year — fingers crossed!
Speaking of “Flames,” MOD SUN shared his new single (featuring Avril) earlier this month. The music video came out last week. It’s a great song, and we can’t wait to hear more where that came from.
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 not an exact 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!
What do you think of the 17 new songs listed on Avril’s studio blackboard? Do you think we’ll hear all the tracks, or just some of them? Which ones are you most excited to hear?
These next few months should be exciting, and with any luck, news of Avril’s new album should be imminent. Keep checking back here for all the latest Avril Lavigne music news.
