In February, Lavigne confirmed that her seventh album was “done”. It will follow on from 2019’s 'Head Above Water'.
Avril Lavigne has signed to Travis Barker‘s label DTA Records and has teased fans with a potential forthcoming single.
The Canadian singer-songwriter made the announcement yesterday (November 3) after performing on the Blink-182 drummer’s 'House of Horrors' live-stream last week.
“Let’s fuck shit up! Just signed a record contract to Travis Barker’s record label DTA Records!” Lavigne posted on Instagram. “Should I drop my first single next week?”
The ‘Sk8er Boi’ singer later shared images of herself signing the coveted contract beside Barker. The pop-punk pair made sure to spray bottles of DTA champagne and chuck cakes around, with ‘DTA AVRIL’ balloons to match.
Travis Barker teamed up with Elektra to launch DTA Records in 2019. “I wanted a label partner that I trusted with true artist development,” he said at the time. “As an artist, it’s important to me that an artist’s vision is protected at all costs.”
AVril Lavigne recently teamed up with Barker to appear on Willow’s pop-punk single ‘Grow’. In December 2020, she was pictured in the studio with the drummer's friend and collaborator Machine Gun Kelly.
“So are we ready for new music in the new year or what?” she posted to fans at the time. “Lemme know.”
With her seventh album completed, Lavigne also announced a UK and European tour for 2022.
