Avril Lavigne Releases Childish New Single

Avril Lavigne has never been one to have mature lyrics, but that is the appeal about her. Lavigne's first two albums contained breakup songs that while being shittily written, were catchy and relatable. Then on her third album The Best Damn Thing, Lavigne adopted a more pop-punk sound and released her best album. The fun ended after that and she released her last album, Goodbye Lullaby. The album had a more acoustic sound and while the singles "What The Hell" and "Smile" were more classic, punky Avril, the album went nowhere.
Then Lavigne started to date Nickleback front man Chad Kroeger and recording her fifth studio album. This week Lavigne released the first single from that as-yet-untitled album called "Here's to Never Growing Up." The song is co-written by Kroeger and Boys Like Girls singer Martin Johnson.
The song is a thumping, acoustic guitar-filled pop song about drinking and loving life. The song is catchy, but it doesn't sound like a song Lavigne would usually sing. The lyrics are also a rough point for the song. "I got a bottle of whatever, but it's getting us drunk/ Singing here's to never growing up," Lavigne sings during the chorus.
While the single isn't perfect, it is catchy. However as a 28-year-old, engaged woman Lavigne should be writing better, more mature songs than this. Hopefully the rest of the album is more fun.
