Avril Lavigne New Album Release Date and Track List: "Sk8er Boi" Singer Will Release Fifth Studio Album in 2013 [VIDEO]

The queen of punk rock is back with a brand new studio album that should hit stores later in 2013. Avril Lavigne released a new single called "Here's to Never Growing Up" that features a shoutout to Radiohead from the 28-year-old singer. The track list has not been released yet for the new album but it will definitely include the single "Here's to Never Growing Up."

Lavigne sat down with Billboard for an interview about her new album. She said, "The record's really diverse. We've got these pop-rock tunes, and then these piano ballads with orchestras. I have a heavier song that Marilyn Manson's on called 'Bad Girl,' and then I've got a song called 'Hello Kitty' that sounds like nothing I've done before. 'Here's to Never Growing Up' is on of the rock tunes on it, but it's all over the place."

Lavigne has made some big musical changes in her life over the past couple of years. She left RCA Records for Epic Records after her commercially underwhelming "Goodbye Lullaby" album. Lavigne says, "It was a different time in my life, and there wasn't as much upbeat pop stuff. Basically, this album I wanted to still have those types of songs - emotional, heartfelt ballads, but I also wanted to make this record a little more upbeat and feel-good. And that's also the place that I'm in in my life."

Avril Lavigne is married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, who helped her write the first single from her new LP "Here's to Never Growing Up." Lavigne says, "We met in the studio, so our relationship started off by writing songs together."
