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.” In spring 2020, 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. That 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. By December 2020, she had entered the studio to write and record with MOD SUN and John Feldmann. Later in the month, Machine Gun Kelly was also in the studio with them. Avril has stated that she’s recording more rock music for her next album.
On January 8, 2021, MOD SUN released his new single “Flames” featuring Avril. It’s his third single for his upcoming fourth album. However, it’s unclear if it will also appear on Avril’s next album.
While there’s no timeframe for when we’ll get to hear Avril’s 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!
