Avril Lavigne and her fiancé Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have recorded material together for her new album, Epic Records boss LA Reid has revealed.

Lavigne has spent the last year working on the follow-up to her 2011 album 'Goodbye Lullaby' and Reid has confirmed that she and Kroeger recorded together for the record.

Speaking to Billboard, Reid said of Lavigne's new album and when it would be out: "She worked with Chad Kroeger, who is now her fiance, and they did a really good record."

He continued: "We're in the mixing process now and I expect to release it very soon. I'd like to get it out this year, but time seems to be flying. If we don't, it will be top of the new year."

This is the second time Lavigne has recorded extensively with her partner after her ex-husband and Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley produced six songs on 'Goodbye Lullaby'. They split up in 2009.

Last month, a spokeswoman for the couple, who have been dating for six months, confirmed that Kroeger and Lavigne plan to marry and got engaged earlier this month.

Reid himself returns to the judging panel on The X Factor USA tomorrow (September 12) as part of a new-look line-up that sees newcomers Britney Spears and Demi Lovato make their debuts.
