Where there’s smoke, there’s fire! In early December, Avril Lavigne posted a studio pic with alternative artist MOD SUN and super-producer John Feldmann, who has worked with everyone from Good Charlotte and Blink-182 to Hilary Duff and The Veronicas. The fruit of their labor is called “Flames” and it drops on January 8. (You can pre-order the track here). Avril shared what appears to be the cover art on social media, which finds the collaborators rocking rainbow-colored hair.
Given that Mod Sun is credited as the lead artist on “Flames” (Avril is featured), it looks like we will have to wait a little longer for the followup to 2018’s Head Above Water. The latter detailed the hitmaker’s struggle with lyme disease and found her veering away from the frenetic pop/rock that made her a household name in the early ’00s. It will be interesting to see if Avril lets her hair down and has a little more fun on AL7. Hopefully, “Flames” gives us some perspective on her new direction. See her announcement below.
