Avril Lavigne is finally ready to release some new music! The 26-year-old rocker took to her official website to discuss her upcoming fourth studio album. The rebellious blonde also revealed the name of her next single in her blog post! In perfect Avril style, the first song to be released off her highly-anticipated album will be called What The Hell


Here's what the singer had to say to her fans:

Hey Everyone!

How’s it going??  So… I just wanted to fill you guys in…I’m done with my 4th  record!!! Well, actually I have been done for a year… and now my record company have finally decided to release it.  OMG..How nice! Thanks guys.

I have been dying to get back out on the road and do what I love the most… PLAY MUSIC.  I know you guys have been waiting for a long time…..and so have I, but not by choice.   I have been sitting with this record for a year now.  It’s really special to me.  I have produced a couple tracks alone for the first time, written solo, with friends, I have pushed myself and I feel proud.

In saying all that, this has been a really difficult record for me to create and to release.  Not only is this the most meaningful and special record I have written, it is sincere, honest and close to my heart.   But for the first time I experienced a bunch of bureaucratic BS. People do their best work when they are doing what they want, love and is natural for them, not when you are forcing them to be something that they are not.

From the beginning of my career my message has always been to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in.  Follow your heart.
My first single off this record is called: “What The Hell”.  This song is the least personal song to me off this album. It’s a fun and funny anthem.  It has a broad message about personal freedom.  It is the most pop track on the record.

I am shooting the video in 2 weeks and it will be out in January.  I have been extremely busy designing Abbey Dawn and taking the line internationally for the first time, establishing “The Avril Lavigne Foundation” and focusing on my personal happiness and health.  Balance!

Love you guys!
