Following the recent release of the extended 20th anniversary edition of her debut album, Let Go, Avril Lavigne has released an acoustic version of the title track from her 2022 album, Love Suxas well as his own reimagining of Adele’s 2015 hit “Hello” for Spotify Singles.
“I love Adele’s song ‘Hello’ and I’ve been dying to cover it,” Lavigne said on Twitter. “The Spotify Singles sessions were a fun opportunity to finally do this cover and reinvent my own song ‘Love Sux’ acoustically.”
It turns out that Adele is also a fan of Lavigne. In an Instagram livestream from 2021, the ‘Bonjour’ author said, “Do you know what? I love Avril Lavigne. Her first record, I listen to it all the time. I think it’s such a good record. .
Spotify’s “Singles”, launched in 2016, give artists the opportunity to re-record one of their own songs in addition to paying tribute to another artist. On the “Single” version of “Love Sux,” from Lavigne’s new album, her first after signing to Travis Barker’s DTA label, she pulls off the original, electric version and calls on a backing vocal choir for a pop- more moody punk. Hello.”
Currently on a world tour, which will conclude with three nights at 2 a.m. in London in May 2023, Lavigne recently spoke about the resurgence of pop-punk and her connection to it today. “I’m thrilled with this pop-punk music, it’s coming back right now and people are falling in love with it all over again,” Lavigne said. “And it’s almost in a weird way, it seems bigger than ever right now.”
Lavigne added, “I’m in a happy place in my life, and it’s fun and it reflects that.”
