AVRIL LAVIGNE’S NEW SINGLE, “WHAT THE HELL,” TO BE RELEASED TUESDAY, JANUARY 11

January 10, 2011 – Avril Lavigne’s much-anticipated first single, “What The Hell,” from her forthcoming studio release, Goodbye Lullaby, will be available on iTunes and all digital providers on Tuesday January 11. “What The Hell” is gaining critic’s approval including Rolling Stone, “…easily some of Avril’s catchiest yet, with piping garage-rock organs, a pogoing, do-the-fruģ beat and a soaring singalong chorus.”

Avril Lavigne’s fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby, is set for release by RCA Records on March 8, 2011. Working with longtime collaborators Deryck Whibley, Evan Taubenfeld and Butch Walker, as well as songwriter/producer Max Martin, Lavigne continues to share her personal experiences through her writing and music with a more organic and raw sound.

Avril Lavigne has made an indelible mark on the music community, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide, earning eight Grammy nominations and seven Canadian Juno Awards. She burst onto the music scene in 2002 with the critically acclaimed Let Go, featuring the smash singles “Sk8r Boi” and “Complicated.” Her 2004 release, Under My Skin, debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, as did her third album, The Best Damn Thing, which produced the irrepressible #1 single “Girlfriend” and logged more than 130 million views on YouTube! Lavigne also wrote the song “Alice” for Tim Burton’s critically acclaimed Disney Film Alice in Wonderland.

Outside the recording studio, Lavigne is a successful entrepreneur who continues to design and direct her lifestyle apparel brand, Abbey Dawn, which has expanded its worldwide footprint shipping to more than 50+ countries. Along with her popular fragrance Black Star, she recently introduced Forbidden Rose and is launching a third fragrance in 2011. Lavigne’s past charitable work also inspired her to create The Avril Lavigne Foundation. The Foundation works in partnership with leading charitable organizations to design and deliver programs, raise awareness, and mobilize support for children and youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities.
