Avril Lavigne just announced on her Twitter account that she has finished recording her fifth studio album.
Lavigne has been recording the record for about 7 months now – tweeting hints to her loyal fans now and again about the record. Avril’s spoken briefly about “exciting” meetings with her label Epic Records, involving her follow-up to 2011’s ‘Goodbye Lullaby‘.
Unfortunately Avril isn’t in any rush to release the record and is taking a vacation (a short one, hopefully) before she releases the new material. Avril’s fourth album was met with a so-so reception and didn’t perform as successfully as her previous releases commercially, so I’m rooting for her this time around.
