Avril Lavigne to cover Nickelback for new anime film
The punk pop singer is set to contribute her version of 'How You Remind Me' to the 'One Piece' manga series
Lavigne got engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger earlier this year. Her version of her fiance's best-selling single will appear on the soundtrack to the latest film in the One Piece manga film series – One Piece Film Z.
Lavigne's previously released version of the Joan Jett song 'Bad Reputation' is also set to appear on the soundtrack after One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda wrote to Lavigne and asked if she would be willing to contribute music to the film, reports Anime News Network.
It was recently confirmed by Epic Records boss LA Reid that Lavigne and Kroeger have recorded material together for her new album. Lavigne has spent the last year working on the follow-up to her 2011 album 'Goodbye Lullaby'.
This is the second time Lavigne has recorded extensively with a partner, after her ex-husband and Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley produced six songs on 'Goodbye Lullaby'. They split in 2009.
