Canadian pop rocker Avril Lavigne has just released her brand new Single “Here’s To Never Growing Up.” It’s the first single she’s released since her last album, which ended with “Wish You Were Here.” Avril took a turn towards a softer, more mellow acoustic style on her last effort “Goodbye Lullaby” which performed a lot under what music industry execs would typically expect from an artist of Avril’s calibre.
The brand new single reverts back to the Avril her fans know and love, a hard rocking party girl who just loves to have a good time. The new single is very radio friendly- and manages to stray away from the typical style of tunes on the airwaves nowadays. You won’t hear any dubstep, or bass drops in this fresh track- it’s all about Avril’s voice and the instruments. The lyrics are (as expected) suitably bratty and outlandish, and extremely catchy after you hear the hook during the first chorus. Something Avril Lavigne does very well, is creating music that people love to sing along to. “Here’s To Never Growing Up” is no exception to this rule, as listening to this song makes you want to jump on stage along side her and rock out with a guitar.
Unfortunately, Avril’s appeal seems to have dwindled over the past couple of years- with her taking massive breaks between her musical endeavours. By allowing so much time to pass before releasing new material, fickle teenagers set their sights on the more prominent artists in the industry; like Taylor Swift, or One Direction. An advantage Avril has over them however, is a long lasting fan base that has proven to be extremely loyal. So even if the sales numbers aren’t quite as high as they used to be, her fans will always be supporting her- buying her albums and tickets to her shows too.
Take a listen to the song below, and let us know what you think of the brand new song from Avril Lavigne’s upcoming 5th studio album.
