NEW MUSIC: AVRIL LAVIGNE | I LOVE IT WHEN YOU HATE ME (FEAT. BLACKBEAR)
Avril Lavigne has unleashed her new single, "I Love It When You Hate Me," featuring blackbear, which is a follow-up to "Bite Me," the first single she released under her new record deal, DTA Records. Avril Lavigne has also announced that she will release a brand new album entitled "Love Sux" next month. Set to land February 25, it comes after the Canadian singer-songwriter previously teased that her seventh LP would be arriving “at the top” of 2022 on Travis Barker’s label. Speaking on the album last month, Lavigne said it was inspired by Green Day and that “it’s a love letter to women.” “I went back to what sounds I originally was influenced by at the beginning of my career [for this album],” she told Entertainment Weekly. “To the core, I’m a kid from a small town who listened to bands like Blink-182 and Green Day and NOFX in high school, and I tapped into that.” She continued: “It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s just pure rock & roll from front to back. There’s a lot of reflecting upon different relationships that I have gone through and where I’m at, and even though there are songs about past love experiences that didn’t work out, I’m in such a good place in my life that it’s still just fun and feisty and light. I’m poking fun at myself that I’ve gone through a lot in love.” Avril Lavigne has made history, smashed records, and consistently blazed a trail of her own as an uncompromising force in music and culture. Beyond selling 40 million albums worldwide with 12.5 million units sold in the U.S. alone, she has notched eight GRAMMY® Award nominations.
